When I was in high school, back in St. Louis, Anacrusis was the best local band on the scene, bar none. They are, and were, true musicians, a cut above the rest. In 1993, just before they released Screams and Whispers, I ran into a couple of the band members at a local record store. They told me about their upcoming album and I told them how much of a fan I was. They gave me an advance demo copy of Screams and Whispers on cassette, on the condition that I promise to buy the CD when it came out!!! Imagine my excitement!!! I readily agreed!!! When the CD came out, I faithfully purchased it (which I would have done anyway). Shortly thereafter, I saw them perform that album live at Mississippi Nights in St. Louis. They rocked that place better than anyone before or since. All I can say now is this: if the members of Anacrusis are reading this, I want to thank you for being the great musicians that you are. Whatever you do, continue to make your music. The world will be better for it. To everyone else out there, buy these CDs and you will be glad you did.
