I was asked about this one recently, maybe because it sold for around $100 on eBay not too long ago. It was recorded at Polaris Studios in Windsor Ontario. Maybe it was just a studio recording project. I'm assuming it was a Canadian release but it doesn't have any catalog numbers or markings typical of Canadian independent releases from around that time. The jacket was printed in the U.S.A. but in the "Special Thanks" section on the back the Windsor Police Dept. is mentioned. I know of some American bands that did record in Canada so I guess it is possible they could be from the Detroit area as well. A google search didn't turn up any definitive information.
Polaris Project - Victims Of Circumstance LP (Polaris, 1981)
(Come On / Oh Boy / Victims Of Circumstance / Back In 1985 / When Is Over // Devil In The Night / Ain't That A Shame / Watch What You Say / Into The Night / Rise And Fall)
All of the Divshare audio links are dead. I haven't yet decided what, if anything, to do about it.

My Want List
Any good obscure punk/powerpop (especially Swedish, Swiss and Finnish) that I don't have such as:
CANADIAN DEMO/LIVE RECORDINGS - anything from The Unknowns, Zro4, The Negatives, Stark Naked and The Fleshtones, Extroverts, Airborne, Pat Bay and The Malahats, Sikphuxz, Woods Are Full Of Cuckoos, Parking Lot, etc
MASTERBEATS - Any cassette releases (Kitchener, Ontario, Canada band, early 80's)
MR. SCIENCE - Terror As Pop and any other cassettes (Canada, 1980s)
NILP - Dark Side Of Nilp cassette (Switzerland, c1983)
I'm mainly interested in punk and powerpop records and bands from 1977 - 1983 along with some synth/electronic things as well. I'm particularly interested in bands from Sweden, Switzerland and Finland, although if it is good it doesn't matter where it is from. If you have some obscurity that you think I might be interested in, drop me an email. If you're looking to hear something in particular, ask and I may have it.
