Electronic Circus

Electronic Circus eleased their first single in about 1982. In the words of Paul “It was a spectacular flop”. A year or two ago it went viral on YouTube after someone put it with some footage from a Bergman film - in fact, it got so big that the Bergman estate made YouTube take it down. That track, Direct Lines, has just been re-released on green vinyl(!) on Seattle label Medical Records. They decided to release a follow up single last year called Roundabout, which was really Europoppy and did quite well in some of the more obscure Electronic Music charts. There’s now an album coming out in the next couple of months. Radio Pure Gently will be proudly showcasing some of the tracks.

Electronic Circus are:

Chris Payne, stalwart member of Gary Numan's Tubeway Army, Dramatis, Dead or Alive etc. Co-wrote Fade to Grey by Visage

Mike Stewart, brilliant keys player and 'modern classical' composer extraordinaire 

Frankie Day, sixteen years old and already a seasoned performer with a great voice. 

Frankie's only just joined the band – they say they advertised for months for a singer and were so lucky to find her. She features on the Christmas single.

Paul Johnson Rogers – drums, vocals (almost by default until Frankie joined)



They are releasing a 2013 Christmas Single in December called - 'On Christmas Eve' featuring and introducing the wonderful voice of Frankie Day!


Sarah DeWarren

The bright lights of stardom are the prerogative of young girls everywhere, and Sarah de Warren was no exception, honing her skills on the streets of hometown Dorset to perform covers by the age of 13. However, it wasn't until she started writing and recording her own material a year later that her interest in the technical side of music production developed, inspiring her to study maths and physics as well as music- something she hopes to continue at university, with a degree in Audio Acoustics.
Now, quoting influences that range from Jeff Buckley and Beth Rowley to the XX, the result of de Warren’s ensuing three years of music production is an impressive Myspace back catalogue of haunting melodies overlaid with emotionally fraught and emotive lyrics that hint of an insight and intelligence that transcend her 18 years and have already garnered her some serious acclaim and accolade, winning her positions in Live and Unsigned 2012's grand finals at the 02 Arena, as well as recognition for her songwriting: UK Song writing Contest semifinalist two years running and the 'Best Original Song' award at the Live and Unsigned Area finals.
It's a promising start for the indie pop ingénue who seems poised to join the ranks of well established female singer songwriters who are currently reigning over the indie charts.
With her name locked in festival line ups over the summer, you will have easy access to Sarah de Warren over the coming months, but until then, you can find her on her Myspace and Facebook pages. www.twitter.com/sarahdewarren | http://SarahdeWarrenMusic.bandcamp.com | www.SARAHDEWARREN.com

The Circuit Symphony

The Circuit Symphony are from South Wales and consist of Oliver Davies and Samantha Adams.

Influenced and dedicated to the artists, instruments and fashion icons that brought electronic music to the contemporary scene during the late 70s and early 80s, The Circuit Symphony bring you flavours from bands such as Space, Visage, Blancmange, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, Kajagoogoo and other classic artists from that era.

Their last album "Oracle" is an outstanding synthfest, no doubt about it.  They have just released their new single "A Christmas Synthony" which not only features Samantha's gorgeous vocals, but rock legend Bernie Marsden on guitar.  It is a surefire hit this Christmas.
