If any band has paid its dues, it's the Jerks. One of the Philippines' most exciting live acts, it took 15 years for the protest-oriented band to release its first album in , the largely unknown, The Jerks Live!!! Though a superb album, The Jerks sold poorly, and the band continues as perhaps the country's most famous "underground legend. Renowned guitarist Jun Lopito joined later in the year and left in the early '90s. The Jerks have gone through numerous personnel changes over the years, many times because members found better-paying jobs overseas. Though rock music doesn't have a wide following in the Philippines, the Jerks developed a reputation as a skillful, most exciting live act, performing passionate covers of material by the Rolling Stones , the Who , the Doors , and other bands now considered classic, though many of these bands are Jerks ' contemporaries, and the Stones still rock. Pura also writes songs, many of which deal with inequities in Philippine society, on topics ranging from hunger and homelessness to societal apathy and government inefficiency.

Aerosmith:Circle Jerk Lyrics
Def Jam Records' first west coast signing in 15 years, the year-old tattooed rapper has been christened king of a whole new dance movement. Fair to say, when Newsbeat New Music speaks to most new artists they're not on the set of a movie they're starring in with 50 Cent and Diddy's son.

Clone do the dance a big favour, collecting Larry Heard's legendary Gherkin Jerk experiments for the first time. In Heard issued two pseudonymous 12"s of totally stripped down, tracky House music that sounds quite unlike anything before or since. They've since rightly become holy grails of Chicago music, a high water mark of the scene's forward-looking, functional aesthetics which has provided point of reference for everyone from Jamal Moss to the current Night Slugs sound. This compilation colelcts all tracks from the two singles plus further cuts from the same sessions, including the Afro-futurism of 'Psychotic Fantasy' from the Dance Pt.
