John Macias was the front man of the LA punk band Circle One. .The Origional line-up was Mike Vallejo on guitar,John Macies on Vocals,Mike Ituarte on Bass, and Bill Ituarte on Drums.They were gaining lots of popularity for only being around a short period of time. Opening for bands like Black Flag,Wasted Youth,Circle Jerks and Bad Brains. John Macias formed P.U.N.X., an organization for promoting shows and never charging more then $5 admission.We had a base of operations in Hollywood at a place called the Wig factory on La Brea.We rehersed there, and runaway punx stayed there. P.U.N.X started booking shows at the Cathey De Grande which was cool because the scene was kinda dead. John was really busy with promoting shows, plus battling his mental illness so the band slowed down a great deal. John was leader of the "family', some type of christian punk gang that was responsible for much of the violence in the scene. John was a strong presence in the CA hardcore scene known for his intimidating and intense persona.
