Circus Lupus - Super Genius

Label: Dischord
Year: 1992

Sometimes you gotta go to Madison, Wisconsin to form one of Washington D.C.'s most iconic post hardcore bands, huh? They did move back to Washington after one 7", so the Wisconsin part is sort of a footnote, but that's sort of the point of the internet right? Footnotes and shit.
Members of this band came from and went on to be part of:
Lunch Meat
Soul Side
Las Mordidas
Skull Kontrol
Alarms and Controls
Red Eyed Legends
The Catholic Church
The Vile Cherubs
Thee Evolution Revolution
Crime In Choir
The Golden Bears
Blue Giant
The Corin Tucker Band
That list should tell you all you need to know. Should.
The record is available for purchase here, and I highly advise getting a physical copy...otherwise, how will it "randomly come up in conversation" at your next dinner party if you haven't "accidentally" left the lp out on the coffee table?
