Biography

Circus Lupus was among the many intelligent, brutal punk and punk-inspired groupings signed to Washington’s legendary Dischord label. Ironically, though, the music group primarily got its begin in Madison, WI, where vocalist Chris Thomson got arrived at from D.C. to wait university. There he fulfilled drummer Arika Casebolt, guitarist Chris Hamley, and bassist Reg Schrader, launching an initial one and doing different travels. A relocation to Washington was along with a change in bassists, with Seth Lorinczi overtaking that place. The resultant lineup documented two albums, 1991’s Super Genius and 1993’s Solid Brass, combined with the Joan Jett-produced “Pop Man” one and some various other paths before splintering thereafter. Hamley and Thomson trapped together, though, heading on to type the Monorchid some years afterwards.

#Fact
1 Graduated from Arsenal Technical High School, Indianapolis, IN; 1950.
2 Graduated from Butler University, Indianapolis, IN; 1954.
3 Census and marriage records show that his father was born in Syria; his mother was American.
4 Is Italian-American. His surname, Lupus, is an ancient Roman family name. From the Latin word "lupus" (later "lupo") which means "wolf".
5 A month after his 75th birthday on July 19, 2007 he broke his own weight-lifting endurance record of 76,280 pounds in 27 minutes that he had set in 2002 at age 70 by lifting 77,560 pounds in 24 minute and 50 seconds.
6 Best remembered by the public for his starring role as "Willie Armitage" on the TV series Mission: Impossible (1966).
7 He was hired by the US Army to appear in a series of commercials playing the role of Superman with the permission of "Detective Comics" (aka National Periodical Publications, now known as DC Comics). He did so for many months until the Playgirl pictorial was published. He then subsequently was terminated and the Army for many years later did no longer produce recruitment commercials for broadcast television.
