Oliver: Circle - DNA (16 November 1991)
Unfortunately, this rather ropy rehearsal video is the only clip, to date, I could find of Finnish band, Circle performing their debut single, DNA, a space rocker propelled by a riff that sounds like someone hyperventilating. Even hardcore rockers may find themselves put off by the slightly muddy sound and the flashing amber light, which must have really made the atmosphere if you were there in the garage with them...
Circle have gone on to be an astonishingly durable outfit, still recording in 2014 and producing work which has become more experimental. Peel remained a fan and the band recorded a session as late as 2002. I hope that I can bring you more content from them as the years go by.
