The Screaming Tribesmen - Top Of The Town download album

The Screaming Tribesmen were one of the most enduring and powerfully melodic bands to emerge from the rich Australian underground rock scene of the 1980s. If the indie chart-topping single "Igloo" had been their only legacy they would have been long remembered, but they produced a stack of other memorable songs and toured every nook and cranny of Australia, as well as throughout the US and Europe. Led by guitarist-vocalist Mick Medew, a veteran of cult band The 31st, the Tribesmen emerged in Brisbane in 1981 as a ‘60s-influenced power trio. This line-up would last seven years and firmly established itself with the "Date With A Vampyre" and "Top of the Town" EPs before signing to American label Ryko and releasing the "Bones and Flowers" album.

The Screaming Tribesmen was a rock band formed in Brisbane by Mick Medew, John Hartley & Murray Shepherd. After their I Don't Wanna Know EP and a string of successful singles, including "A Stand Alone" and their first hit, "Igloo" which was penned by Medew and Died Pretty frontman Ron Peno, the band moved base to Sydney, home of their label Citadel Records. The follow-up Top of the Town EP released on the boutique Rattlesnake Records label saw a change in direction for the band as it morphed into the sound of their first full-length release Bones and Flowers. The band toured the US on the strength of the album and at home they enjoyed a run of Australian Alternative No. 1 hits as well as gaining Stateside attention with regular airplay on the US College Radio circuit.

Ian McFarlane, an Australian musicologist described it as, "a more lightweight guitar-pop sound, and failed to live up to expectations. In January 1987 they toured eastern Australia before. starting to record their first full-length album in the following month, Bones and Flowers (October 1987), with Masuak and Thorne co-producing. In January 2011 Medew performed a set of the Screaming Tribesmen songs in Sydney with former guitarist and song writing partner, Masuak.
