CLOWN ALLEY
CIRCUS OF CHAOS
SOUTHERN LORD

A reissue of this Bay Area outfit's only full length record, CIRCUS OF CHAOS is an old school crossover record that merged blistering thrash a la Violence ("Unplugged") and ambient slow movements way back in 1986. Adorned with bonus material such as interviews and demos and boasting not one, but two ex-bass players from The Melvins, if nothing else, this unearthed release offers a glimpse of the early days of extreme music from the West Coast. While this disc can be hardly be heralded as essential, it does fill in the gaps nicely and compliments your DRI records well enough. www.southernlord.com
