Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Circus Mono Kontrol

 

Circus Lupus was a post-hardcore band based in the area of Washington, D.C. The band originally formed in Madison, Wisconsin, where one-time Ignition & Soul Side bassist Chris Thomson met guitarist Chris Hamley & drummer Arika Casebolt while attending school. Reg Shrader initially played bass with the band. He was replaced by Seth Lorinczi, as the band was making its transition from Madison to Washington. 



The name Circus Lupus comes from an SCTV sketch about "Circus Lupus, the Circus of Wolves", a mock TV commercial for an entirely wolf-filled traveling circus, with graphics of wolves on trapeze swings & other circus apparatus.

After the demise of Circus Lupus, Chris Thomson & Chris Hamley formed the band Monorchid with bassist Andy Coronado, guitarist Andy Cone, & drummer Tom Allnutt.

I got the chance to see Monorchid in the summer of 1997 at the Capitol Theater in Olympia during Yo-Yo A Go-Go.

You can get both Monochrid's albums over at I Hate the 90s. I'll feature their three 7''s here & if you like them go over to I Hate the 90s. Be sure to tell Michelle that Nathan sent ya.

In 1997, Chris Thomson, Kim Thompson (Delta 72), & Brooks Headley (Born Against, Universal Order of Armageddon) formed Skull Kontrol, initially a three-piece until the official demise of the Monorchid at which time guitarist Andy Coronado joined the band.
