Artist: CIRCUIT DES YEUX
Title: CDY3
Format: 10"
Label: Magnetic South
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
2013 release. “The cryptic vision of Circuit des Yeux becomes ever more formed with this minialbum. Whereas the oft solo Chicago-based Haley Fohr is backed with a tourlearned combo to push these three songs into maximal view then, off into obliteration. Yet, the focus remains Fohrs haunted, mournful melodies, where the edges of her voice twist toward inner conflict and white light aggression, and intricate feedback architecture of her guitar playing. In this near anthem rock mode the songs become a liberation from the cacophonous orchestrations fashioned throughout Symphone and Sirenum and the isolation of last years Portrait -- all full-lengths on the De Stijl label. The retelling of “Im On Fire” and the new "Lithonia" are classic structures filtered through Fohrs Romantic spirit and an emotional weight not far from Catherine Ribeiro or Peter Jefferies. The B-side “Helen, You Bitch” is a smudged, concrète-purposed solo that builds with drums and more guitar until the end. Recorded at the all analogue Magnetic South in Bloomington, Indiana, this 300 edition 10-inch is the studios first widespread release on its in-house label after previous titles from Apache Dropout, Learner Dancer and Tammar. 10" record housed inside of black and white cardstock foldover sleeve with b/w insert.” - Magnetic South.

"It came out of nowhere in 1982, this punk rock/hardcore fireball with the bright yellow sleeve. In one sense, The Zero Boys Vicious Circle was yet another example of how U.S. punk seemed to peak coast to coast that year. But unlike most coastal punk, the Zero Boys were pointing the way to a scene that could accommodate heaping helpings of melody, intelligence, and rock n roll sus, not just turbo-charged ferocity. From 1979 into 83, the Indianapolis based ZBs were the finest hardcore blitz in the Midwest if not all the lower 48 states. Proof is Vicious Circle and the two decades since of copyists, bootleggers, practitioners and reunion concert pogoers. Though before and after that LPs 1982 release they recorded the Livin in the 80s 7", songs for three comps and released the post-mortem History Of... cassette revealing their transformation into a toured band warming to the metaphysical and their demise while still waving torches of rock n roll panache. ... Yeah, they played shows with Minor Threat, Dead Kennedys, Subhumans, and others but in Terry "Hollywood" Howes guitar there was harmonious terror and unstoppable cadence. Terrys licks and chops -- a leap beyond two or three chord punk -- offered a zone and measured count for drummer Mark Cutsinger and bassist David "Tufty" Clough, a rhythm unit in par with the Minutemen if not The Meters, to run lines like quicksilver. Meanwhile, frontman, Paul "Z" Mahern provides a constant wash from beginning to end. When the Ramones lost it, the Zero Boys found it; Adding a slam brigade fist to the Blitzkrieg Beat. The Zero Boys managed to come with one of the best early 80s punk records, or one of the best records ever, period. Between Vicious Circle and History Of, the entire recorded output of this legendary Midwest punk bands original line up is, finally, collected.” - Jack Rabid and Eric Weddle.
