"Chalk Circle existed in the Washington, DC metro area punk/hardcore scene between 1981 and 1983. They were the first all-female rock or punk band to ever record and perform in DC, their recorded output is finally available on vinyl for the first time. Reflection includes 12 songs from compilations, and live shows, and unreleased recordings and a 16 page booklet with extensive liner notes by Don Fleming. Chalk Circle, although personally part of the birth of hardcore as friends and fans of the Dischord scene, musically never fit in to the stringent rules of that scene. They sound like they were from a time where experimentation was rewarded, where new ideas were examined and transformed by people who were curious and excited to fit with the moment. For those who want a tag, well, think about the post punk of Delta 5, Liliput, The Swell Maps and the Slits. Think about the youthful energy of DC Hardcore and the enthusiasm of teenagers making music that comes from the heart and not from copying riffs from rock records. Co-released by both Mississippi Records and Post Present Medium." Digital download included.
