The Beat Circus
the BEAT Circus CD cover by Goldin
While I never ran away to join the circus, I've come very close. The Beat Circus
is an incredible band that performs Circus music. Brian Carpenter, the Ringmaster, asked me to
create the cover for their latest release and a few other projects.
Try and make it to this show-it's a trip!
I will be in town, maybe we could have a drawger field trip to the circus?

With vocals that sound like a hybrid of Nick Cave and Peter Murphy, and a storytelling style to rival Tom Waits, Reverend Glasseye are both a spectacular disaster and a charming achievement. Songs like "Last Standing Man" and "Sins of Portsmouth" ramble on like a page out of Bukowski, while a church organ, guitars and a slew of other instruments plod on like a sombre, broken orchestra -- Liz Worth, Exclaim Magazine
Beat Circus could be the house band for the dark carnival in Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes...the accompaniment to some faded old black-and-white cartoon that never saw the light of day because its creator's sense of humor made others...uneasy. -- Weekly Planet
