about

Live album by the now legendary Meronia/Zopalki -era line-up of Circle. Recorded in 1996 at Pakkahuone, Tampere, and originally released in 1998, Surface captures the full frontal assault of an early Circle live show. Wondrous stories of a band of crazed art rock warriors playing with ear-exploding volume and wearing dead fish on stage are still told with awe and respect as people who saw the show refer to the gig immortalized in these recordings. Starting off with a spooky ambient rendition of Hank Williams' "I Saw The Light" and then speeding up with jarring guitar riffage and nervous synthesizer licks, Surface builds tension without mercy or release. Hauntingly original rock music from a very weird period of alternative music in Finland. Now available for the first time on vinyl, remastered and with new artwork.

Originally released on Circle/Marble Sheep: Surface/Marble Zone 2 CD (META-023) via Metamorphos in 1998.
