Clown Alley were one of the first bands I saw live when I moved out to the Bay Area in the mid 80's. I was in total awe watching the band go crazy, looking normal as fuck but playing melodic, simple, yet very original sounding thrash. The band had more then one female member when I first saw them. The band sounded metal as fuck, but didn't really fit the part..
When circus of chaos came out my buddy Zoran and myself found ourselves spinning the record almost daily. The production is insane on this LP, and has some wicked melodic guitar wanks that just get stuck in your head. The band featured 3 members in its lifetime that went on to play in the Melvins.
This LP came out on Alchemy records (also did some RKL, and Poison Idea).
Its a shame that this is all the band did...
