Let's start getting excited for the Masque event with some Screamers. Tomata was one of the greatest frontmen who ever lived. Look at that stiff posture and screaming face. He was to accidentally inspire horrible bands like the Buggles, Gary Neuman and other new wave crap to come. But at the time, this approach was revolutionary. This is the year of disco and Mick Jagger. Sadly, we have have lost Tomata, so the Screamers will not be playing. But just look at that intense control balanced by ferocity. There will never be another like him.
