The Screwed are a punk band puled together featuring legends in the early Toronto punk scene. The original idea was to be a jam band that would play songs from 1977 and that lead to a CD release of covers of songs that came out in the year. Cleave Anderson, the drummer from Tyranna, the Way Outs, Battered Wives and so many other great bands came up with the idea. he convinced John Borra of Neon Rome fame and Steve Koch of the Viletones and Demics fame to play bass and guitar in this band. They recruited Steve Saint from the Sinisters to sing.

The band has started doing originals and songs from the early local scene. This session was recorded and played live on the show and what you are hearing in this session is pumped up from the downstairs studio into a channel on our braodcast board. The live session is followed up with an interview with the band trying to capture some of the significance that these folks played on the scene, but also the things that they are doing now like the various themed nights at clubs in Toronto with singers from the first wave of the Toronto scene. Here is the set list based around our discussion.
