Circus Devils

Although it would be easy to dismiss Circus Devils as just another indie project by Guided by Voices founder Robert Pollard, the band encompasses a different form of musical exploration altogether, and dismisses the styles of his solo endeavors for a more ominous and nightmarish tone exploring the themes of good and evil. According to the group's whimsical website bio, Circus Devils formed because a dog-faced man approached each member on separate occasions to deliver the message, "Circus Devils is Real." Like this story, their lyrics are often unsettling fictional tales of horror delivered within deconstructed rock operas. In 2001, Pollard met with producer Todd Tobias and Todd's brother Tim Tobias, who had been playing bass for GBV since 1999. The trio decided to start recording under the moniker Circus Devils, and collaborated to create the album Ringworm Interiors, which was finished in 2001. Tim and Todd split the musical duties (Tim focusing on guitar layering, and Todd working the recording console and bass), building atmospheric tension while Pollard delivered his sinister and wry vocals. In 2002 the band released its second LP, The Harold Pig Memorial, a slightly less abstract concept album about the memorial service of an L.A. biker. The ambitious two-part rock opera Pinball Mars followed in 2004, and the successive year brought forth the difficult ambient prog album Five. In 2007, after signing to Mike Patton's haven for off-kilter musical projects, Ipecac, the label released their most straightforward record to date, Sgt. Disco. ~ Jason Lymangrover

PLEASE PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY. GAWD, HOW ANY ONE COULD CONCIEVE THIS AS MUSIC IS BEYOND ME. ANOTHER ALBUM....WHY ! ! ! ! !

And apparently Circus Devils has come out with another album, Gringo, since my last post. Good job!
Report as inappropriate
I saw an interview where Robert Pollard said he could write five songs on the toilet, and three of them would be good. Considering how many albums he puts out in a year, the man obviously spends a lot of time in the can. I really like what I've heard from Circus Devils so far, though.

Somebody please put this idiot out of his misery.
