Circle One- Patterns Of Force
Here is the great Circle One 'Patterns Of Force' LP from 1983. This is another one of my favorite records. A lot of people had problems with this band, whether it be because of the lyrics, the violence that surrounded the band or their fans, but either way, I think this record is fantastic.
Circle One started in 1980. They played their first show in 1981 and their first show was also the first Suicidal Tendencies show. The band had a large following, a lot of them were a part of "The Family" the group of people led by singer John Macias. He was a giant, built man, who had a lot of people looking up to him. A lot of people who knew him said he had his problems but he was a good friend and a good person. They said he had a menacing aura about him and that he wasn't afraid to stand up for himself. A few times he even knocked out policemen who were hassling random punk kids. He also started P.U.N.X., which promoted and put on punk shows in LA/OC but had their own security, in an attempt to keep it safer.
I like this record a lot and I hope you enjoy it! If people like this, I will upload some demos and live stuff too!
Here are two live pics of John Macias...
