SCREEN 3 - new blood 7''1981
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
