Microreview: Circus of Power, Self-titled

Not at all the glam metal knock offs they were marketed as in 1987.

Ramones + Sex Pistols ÷ Rolling Stones (× biker image) ≈ COP.

Tracks de-stigmatize the term “rock n roll”– not a record label hype to toughen emo bands, but dangerous electric blues.

Riffs! All the unmistakable sound of a Les Paul plugged directly into a Marshall stack.

The debut self-titled album reissued in 2008: new demo versions of tracks included: detuned a half-step from the official album, much bleed between tracks = basement ugly rock n roll.
