Screen 3 was a Post-punk Band (1980–1984, 1990–1992)
The original line-up formed in 1980 (heavily influenced by The Cure's first album) and was:
Neil Dyer (guitar and vocals) Richard Kett (bass) Brett Cooper (drums) then added two trumpet players in late 1981: Peter Jay and Jason Votier
Their first release was two songs on a Norwich compilation called 'Norwich - A Fine City', then an independent 7" called 'New Blood', which got the band signed to Epic (now part of Sony Corporation).
'Hearts in Limbo' was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales, and produced by Roger Lomas , who produced some of the Selecter records on Two-Tone, and all the Bad Manners recordings.
They recorded two John Peel sessions during their career, and one for fellow Radio 1 DJ Kid Jensen.
The next single, 'Come into my Jungle' came closest to being a success, getting a lot of radio play but no real sales. It was produced by Steve Brown , who produced the first Wham album, and the second Cult album.
Their last single on Epic was 'City of Souls', which was less successful than the previous one. This was also released as a 12" EP, featuring the 7" b-side, 'Come Into My Jungle' again, plus two extra tracks
This is the first volume of the "Handful Of Snowdrops" demo archive covering the 1984 to 1986 periode. This album was given to all of those who bought the "20th Anniversary Edition" of "Land Of The Damned" and is only available as a digital download file.

This obscure group is notable for including two ex-members of dark punk band Peace Corpse (Tracy Lee Garcia and Julianna Towns). Unlike Peace Corpse, Insulin Reaction is dark post punk very much in the Cure vein. …they use no guitar - they have two bassists, a drummer, and a keyboardist. With two basses, the songs have a dark, ominous quality to them with very few bright, treblous noises appearing.
In Camera were a London based post-punk band who emerged in the summer of 1978.
The seeds were sown when youthful drummer Jeff Wilmott introduced aspiring bass player Pete Moore to singer David Steiner; through this nucleus the addition of guitarist Andrew Gray became possible. An incendiary performance at 'Billy's' in Soho, London resulted in a contract with 4AD Records. In Camera first released the 45 RPM 7" 'Die Laughing/Final Achievement' in 1979, followed six months later by the 4 track 12" 'IV Songs'. Various gigs materialised throughout England, culminating at the end of 1980 in a John Peel session. This resulted in the release of the session on 12" under the title 'Fin', the recording being the final vinyl document of the band before its non-acrimonious split in 1981. A retrospective, '13 (Lucky For Some)' was released in 1992 on CD. All releases were on the 4AD label....
