Circle Jerks: My Career As A Jerk

If you are a fan of the Circle Jerks then this is a no-brainer to buy or borrow because you will enjoy it.

When Keith, Greg or Lucky talk about the early years of the band they do so in a way that is not influenced by what happened in later years, for me it is nice to see that any animosity today does not cloud what they were able to do 30 sum years ago. Zander and Earl Liberty provide plenty of good stories from their time in the band and you learn the whole story on Roger, the original bassist.
