Circus of Power

Circus of power was a Vas discovery, Vas and I were good mates and the details can all be found in The Story of Rock and Roll.  He played me a tape by this band and it immediately went into the tape deck in my car and stayed there for about 3 months.  That is probably a record.

Circus of Power were very successful in bringing in that whole swampy Southern style slide guitar into heavy rock. It’s very common at the moment with bands like Black Stone Cherry leading the way but at the time they managed to pull in that Skynryd type Southern guitar smack into some serious blues metal and it sounded fantastic.
