Bio:

Circus of Power was the personification of East Coast sleaze rock during the late 80s and early 90s. Formed in the mid 1980s, during the burgeoning New York City club scene, the classic line-up of Alex Mitchell (vocals), Ryan Maher (drums), Ricky Beck Mahler (guitars), and Gary Sunshine (bass), were signed to RCA records and promptly released their seminal, self-titled debut album debut. Their brand of bluesy, bad-ass biker rock set the perfect backdrop for their lyrical swagger and stories of debauchery and depravity. A live EP, (1989's 'Still Alive'), and second full length, (1990's 'Vices'), continued their musical tradition and thrust the band towards new heights, securing major tours and MTV airplay. Line-up and label changes led to the third full length album, 1993's 'Magic and Madness' Released on Columbia Records, the album ushered in a more melodic sound for the band, while losing none of the grit that fans had grown to expect. The group disbanded in the mid-90s, and despite a few sporadic "reunion" gigs, Circus of Power has been largely inactive...until now. With a fresh new line-up, including Stoner Rock legend, Brant Bjork, commanding drumming duties, the band is set to release their first new material in a quarter of a century. Get ready to 'Motor' on down and revisit all of your old 'Vices', because C.O.P. is back!

Album:

By 1991, like many hard rock/heavy metal bands of this period, CoP became casualties (popularity wise), of the burgeoning grunge movement; however the band persevered, recording and releasing their third album Magic and Madness in 1993; two years later, the band disbanded, ironically, just as grunge phenomenon was starting to die.Lyrically and visually Circus of Power are heavily influenced by the biker scene and to this day, play at biker events and festivals.Members have included vocalist Alex Mitchell, guitar players Ricky Mahler and Gary Sunshine, and drummer Ryan Maher. Of these, Mitchell is the only remaining founding member.Junkyard fired, Little Caesar and Love / Hate too. It almost looks like sleaze rock can't save itself into the nineties. CIRCUS OF POWER still exists (luckily) with their meanwhile third studio album "Magic & Madness". And COP are so fresh and present that you really shouldn't have to worry. Moving from New York to L.A. was audibly good for the band. "Magic & Madness" still sounds in the best COP manner, smeared with engine oil and swathed by diesel, but they have added a few facets to their repertoire. So you don't just rely on horsepower cars, but drive e.g. with 'Circles' also the ballad bus for the first time or with 'Shine' on the street in Seattle. I don't need to mention that Alex Mitchell is not only a great singer, but also a great lyric poet. And I also save special test tips because they just don't exist. If you ever want to play COP-Killer in your life, don't go to the stores, don't get this record, and CIRCUS OF POWER will go the same way as the bands above. But you are missing out on one of the strongest records of this (still young) year.
