In early 1983 they went in the studio to record "Patterns of Force" on Upstart records. John Macias formed P.U.N.X., an organization for promoting shows and never charging more then $5 admission. P.U.N.X started booking shows at the Cathey De Grande. In 1984, Danny, was asked to join Wasted Youth with Scranny (Danny), Chet, and Allen.
They replaced Danny with Ried Gillcrest on bass who had been in bands with Jody since 1980. Circle One went on to tour, but never recorded a follow up album to Patterns Of Force. The band finally broke up in 1985. In 1988 Circle One reformed to play Fenders Ballroom, but broke up afterwards.
In 1991 Circle One reformed once again with John, Mike, and Jody. Friends Tony and John Blackley played guitar and bass. John had been having a hard time with mental problems and depression. Three days after the Spankys show, John was shot and killed by the Santa Monica Police Department.
