The band Flying Circus was founded in in Grevenbroich. The five musicians draw their influences from the spheres of both Hard Rock and Progressive Rock. Up until now, the band has released six CDs: First, the albums Seasons , Out of the Waste Land , Pomp and Forth , the latter's release coinciding with the band's twentieth anniversary. Numbers like 'Smoke on the Water', 'All Right Now' or 'Born To Be Wild' are always crowd pleasers, but when played approximately one time and a half, they no longer exactly represent what you would call a musical challenge.
So the band deliberately tried to move into directions that had not been followed as extensively:. Eliot, but it was not until bassist Markus Erren joined in that the band's direction began to take its present shape: Through his fanatical interest in progressive rock Erren became a kind of catalyst on the way to the kind of sound the band had in mind.
After Michael Nolte and Markus Wasen had left the band due to lack of time, Harald Krause rejoined the band on keyboards after having left his post as bass player for a period of time, and his interim replacement Lorenz Gelius-Laudam switched to the post of second guitarist. It was this lineup of FLYING CIRCUS which then developed most of the material for the band's debut CD "Seasons", and it was here that the band's still extremely infectious heavy side first got combined with intense psychedelic paintings of sound and lyrical folk parts.
I think we are getting closer to an even more complete realisation of the vision which we have now been following for quite some time, and which we can now grasp in a more and more definite way. The Song "Carpe Noctem" even got the band the accolade of being voted one of the best eight "Song Acts" of the year at the "German Rock and Pop Awards ", while the full album received even more critical acclaim than its predecessor and loads of praise from the fans as well.
Bassist Markus Erren, who had been a major creative force in the band for more than 10 years, had to quit when what had always been seen as a temporary job-related stay in Los Angeles turned out to be a long term commitment after all. For other uses, see Flying Circus disambiguation.
