A Look at the Making of KISS’ Psycho Circus (Unreleased Photos)


It’s been a fun week for Decibel Geek Podcast as we looked back on the polarizing KISS album ‘Psycho Circus.’ Earlier in the week, we talked to Mike Plotnikoff about his role as engineer on the album. In this episode he shared his memories of the experience, how he grew up a KISS fan, the methodology that Bruce Fairbairn used as well as how that methodology led to the inclusion of substitute players for Ace Frehley and Peter Criss on the album. By this point, it’s no secret that other musicians, including Tommy Thayer, Bruce Kulick, and Kevin Valentine, would contribute significantly to Psycho Circus. You can check out our talk with Mike Plotnikoff in the video below.

As a bonus, Mike Plotnikoff was nice enough to send over these photos from the recording sessions of Psycho Circus. These have not been seen publicly before and include cool shots of Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Bob Ezrin with producer Bruce Fairbairn. Pretty cool stuff! We hope you enjoy!
