"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.
