Circle X - Prehistory



Circle X formed in 1978 out of 2 punkbands, No Fun and the I-Holes. Originally located in Louisville, Kentucky, the band relocated to New York to take part in the no wave scene. A 7" called 'Heartbreaker' was released in 1979.
Circle X stayed in France for a while where they recorded a 4 track 12" for Celluloid in 1980. The band went back to NY to record the classic 'Prehistory' LP which was released in 1983 on Enigma/Index. It was later released on the French L'Invitation Au Suicide label.
Circle X went on to release more 7"s and a full length for Matador in the 90's.

One of the best albums ever made. Art-punk at it's finest. Sadly, very few people know about this band.
