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!
