CIRCLE JERKS / VI (1987)

VI is a storming good album.  It deviates from the Jerks hardcore origins, giving instead a more happy punk/metal sound with smart drums and the occasional guitar solo.  Vocals are still raspy and punchy.  Songs average about one and a half minutes so never overstay their welcome.  It’s the best production they ever had and while that may irritate some people I feel it works in the Jerks favour this time.  It’s currently out of print which is a crime.

Songs of Note: Patty’s Killing Mel; Casualty Vampires
