They're Lined Up Waiting And They Don't Look Pleased

"Stupid little zeros with the courage of a rollerskate... we represent what you must fear." --Breaking Circus, "The Imperial Clawmaster's Theme", The Very Long Fuse

"Eat lead, sucker... I'd rather skin you alive, then roll you in salt, you sonofabitch."
--Breaking Circus, "Eat Lead", Smokers' Paradise

I remember seeing Breaking Circus perform "Eat Lead" in Boston before the record came out, and thinking that it was gonna be an absolutely punishing song once they got it down on vinyl. I might've overestimated a bit, but not by much.... seriously, one of the top ten finest moth-o-fucking bands to ever walk the planet... rumor has it that "Smokers' Paradise" was supposed to be an LP, but the label only wanted to pay for six songs... kinda hard to believe, looking at Homestead's track record, yet there it is. Potentially the greatest career-ending record of all time.

This is one of the best things Homestead ever put out

Yep! And when you look at those first few years of Homestead releases (#10 through #95 or so), there's some totally amazing stuff there.

So, so good. My vinyl copy is in very rough shape so thank you so much!

The Ice Machine would be a great repost ....

Changed my mind - this IS the best thing that Homestead ever put out. Did that label suck, or what??

Holly - I can e-mail you the few songs that I ripped from "Ice Machine", if you still want them and if I know where to send them to...

Greg, I'll be wearing my Monsterland shirt tomorrow. Kids need to know what a real band is.

The mp3 files on this post are now listen-only (non-downloadable) files. Tough luck, Von Erich! No, actually, for those of you who missed the boat, I will do my best to respond to any e-mailed requests for the original files.
