SP22 Blood Circus

Primal Rock Therapy

Sub Pop SP22 LP, released January 1989 (U.S.)

Glitterhouse GR0038 LP, releaased 1989 (Germany)

This band flopped. Sub Pop used to tout them in their catalogs as only having been liked by the people working at the label. I thought they were solid, actually. They had one album and one single. The single gets a lot more attention. The first 1,000 copies of this LP were on red vinyl. Sub Pop says 1,649 total were pressed, which indicates that there are 649 black copies floating around. Neither black nor red will break the bank. Also released in Germany on Glitterhouse.
