Circle Jerks: Oddities, Abnormalities, and CuriositiesOddities, Abnormalities, and Curiosities (1995)
Universal Music Group
Reviewer Rating: 4
Once regarded as hardcore pioneers, in the late 80's the Circle Jerks seemed to fade away along with every other great band from their era. They released 2 albums, 1985's Wonderful and 1987's VI, to poor reviews, and with that seemed to disappear completely off the radar, except for a few 10th anniversary shows that were later released as the live Gig album in 1992. Then came the neo-punk explosion of the mid-90's thanks to bands like Green Day and the Offspring. It is doubtful anyone really knew, or even cared that around this time, the Circle Jerks had been back together working on new material. They were quickly picked up by Mercury records to record their major label debut Oddities, Abnormalities, and Curiosities.
