The Screech Owls were formed by Deborah / Debbie Schow / Skhow (vocals and guitar) an american living in Dublin and Richard G. Evans (guitars and more guitars) i.e. Dik of The Virgin Prunes, The Hype and well-known brother (David, U2) fame. Special guests on this demo recording were Brain Neavyn (bass) and Dave Burke (drums) of The Slowest Clock. While The Screech Owls did record Dave Fanning and Mark Radcliffe sessions this is all I have to hand but it is an amazing track. According to this Hot Press article they also recorded ‘Poison River’ for a Stars Of Heaven tribute. Debbie can be heard on KAOS Radio in Olympia where she has hosted the ‘Legends and Lowlife‘ since November 2009.
