Favorite "Time of Day" Songs #1 - "11:11"
December 5, 2016 3:25pm CST
The time has come. #1 in my Favorite "Time of Day" Songs series, that distinction being "11:11" by Screams for Tina. Led by vocalist, bassist, and keyboardist Warren Mansfield, Screams for Tina is a second generation goth band that formed in Los Angeles in 1985. The band is little known, but in a 1988 L.A. Weekly Rock Music Awards contest, the group, according to Wikipedia, placed Top 5 in both Best New Band and Best Underground Band, as well as Top 10 in Independent Albums. After a hiatus, Screams for Tina is still going strong. The band has, despite those awards, released just one proper album alongside three EP's. "11:11" is from that 1993 self titled record. It wasn't a hit (goth songs rarely chart in the States, if ever.) But don't let the word "goth" deter you from listening, because this thing rocks!
