1978 – 1995 (17 years)
Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky, United States
Circle X are a No Wave/art-rock band that began in the late 70s in Louisville, KY. They formed out of the two punk bands The I-Holes and No Fun, the latter of which was the first punk rock band ever formed in Louisville. Soon after forming they relocated to New York City and were part of the same late 70s/early 80s No Wave scene that included bands like Mars and DNA, though for some reason Circle X is now far less known and revered than the other members of the movement, perhaps because of their seeming commitment to obscurity. They released a handful of singles and EPs throughout their career but only two full lengths, 1980's "Prehistory" and their final release, 1994's epic "Celestial" which came out on Matador Records. The band ended when founding member and guitarist Bruce Witsiepe tragically passed away from HIV complications.
