Following their run with Derringer, drummer Vinny Appice and guitarist/vocalist Danny Johnson hooked up with bassist Jay Davis to issue Axis' sole LP in 1978. It's a Circus World is an elephantine offering of funky 'n' chunky power trio hard-rock that rarely disappoints, producer Andy Johns coaxing forth a thick, throbbing wall of guitar and bass, with Appice's Bonzo-sized grooves driving the behemoth on through solid rockers like "Armageddon," "Brown Eyes," and the brooding "Juggler." Consistently heavy, and well executed on all fronts, this one belies its second tier status.
