MIDNIGHT CIRCUS -Richard, Roger, Rodney, Rastus, Raoul, Roderick, Randy, Rupert CD (Messthetics #208)
Midnight Circus appeared on the the absurdly rare Angst in my Pants
compilation EP in 1980 (that also featured H2D's Digital Dinosaurs), but they put most of their energy into the cassette-only wing of the D.I.Y. movement. They churned out gnarly, edgy, vinyl-worthy DIY-punk galore, and here are 21 of their favorite tracks from 1980-1983, mostly gathered from their five impossible-to-find cassette albums.
Over an hour of splendid noise (on a conventional CD) with a deluxe 10-page insert with bio, photos and annotated discography. $9.00
'Leather and Lace'
'Obsesion and Guilt'
'Which Was Wrong?'
