Laydeez and gentlemen, we invite you to roll up and run away with the Circus. Rather than bore you with our life stories, political views and favourite colours, we thought you would rather hear the music and if you want to know more, get in touch. (s)he who feel it, knows it...
Formed in 1990, The Torn Circus has managed to shun the limelight through willful evasion and a reclusive need to create without the hassles of the "career". Gigged extensively throughout Scotland all through the nineties until certain incidents and commitments led to a focus on recording in our own studio and doing it our own way.
The history of the band is too long and probably too wild to recount here. The book will come out eventually...
After years of gigging, we now mainly record (over 300 songs) and do very occasional gigs.
The Elevators, Syd Barret, Julian Cope, the Blues, Hendrix, Led Zep, ourselves
Anything we can lay our hands on
