STAY FREE J.D. RANTS ABOUT CIRCUS OF POWER, FOUR HORSEMEN, AND ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE, UNDERGROUND ROCK ‘N’ ROLL!!
Back when Guns N Roses and L.A. Guns, Cinderella, and Faster Pussycat were all the rage among our mulleted, stonewashed, demon headed silver ringed, metalhead bros from way back, me and my chain-smoking black T-shirted Hanoi Rocks friends would take crazy road trips to see our biker rock heroes CIRCUS OF POWER every chance we could get.
The classic line-up were everybody's faves, but this is a rare example of how ONE DUDE really can hold up the black flag righteously for the followers, as ALEX MITCHELL has consistently located a series of totally qualified new accomapniets to carry on the proud tradition. I don't know if you have a copy of his epic comeback album, "Four", or the follow-up, "Process of Illumination" yet, but I heard some of his new tunes and am just thrilled he continues to get down like an ageless holy barbarian motherfucker.
Not that many bands from the USA! USA! land of the misinformed, cowardly and unfree, can still make real rock ’n‘roll with this much heart and soul. In Big Al's own words:". “Growing up is a process. Drugs, alcohol, arguments….I wish we could go back to those early days, to the songs on that first record. That was the best Circus of Power ever was.”
