Breaking Circus: Ice Machine and Smoker’s Paradise, 1986 1987

   Formed in 1986, the band recorded for Homestead Records, this album originally had 12 songs recorded for the project, but the band was informed the label would only pay for six recordings. The band saved the rest for a follow-up EP entitled Smoker’s Paradise, released in 1987.

Any of the tracks listed here could have easily fit right in with one of those great John Hughes films, you know the type; filled with love, teenage angst, rich bratty teens in their prime.

The band broke up in 1987……..
