The Electric Circus Band
The guys reckon they have a sinister edge to their music - but not as sinister as Chris' gig-induced head injury!

What's the band's history so far?
Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of The Electric Circus Band, a place submerged into an assured melting pot of influences and styles, with a touch of magic swirling through genres. The music has a distinct and sinister edge, hacking into the sounds of 1960’s perfect pop and the raucous punk of the 1970’s, flowing through ever-malevolent indie splendor. It's at their live shows where The ECB’s catalogue of songs combine to create an immaculate blueprint for movie soundtracks; each set featuring suspense, horror and romance depicting tall tales of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

Worst/most embarrassing moment so far?
Well we played in a battle of bands last year and at the start of one gig Chris jumped on the stage from the front, you know cool as a cucumber, unfortunately he didn't realise how low the roof was so cracked my head on it, lots of blood came out, great stuff, he did the gig rather dizzy and went to the hospital afterwards to get his head stitched up, lovely!
