    Having spent a decade toiling away in the musical sweatshops of New York City, Curtis Eller has relocated to North Carolina. Mr. Eller has assembled a new version of his band, The American Circus, and is diligently pursuing his goal of becoming America's leading purveyor of songs about Elvis Presley and Richard Nixon. The wild-eyed vaudevillian’s banjo-driven, rock & roll songs describe a dreamlike vision of American history where all points in time have collapsed into one. Abraham Lincoln and Fidel Castro can rub shoulders with Buster Keaton and Joe Louis against a backdrop of presidential assassinations, circus disasters and Civil War battlefields.

    A true talent, Serious Sam Barrett is a hopeless romantic, a whiskey lover, a skater, a Yorkshire man. And all this is evident on the new LP, which is clearly a recipe for some of the best country music to ever come from outside of the American country.

    60's influenced psychedelic pop from members of Ainsley Band, St Gregory Orange and Piskie Sits.
