CURTIS ELLER'S AMERICAN CIRCUS
Bandicoot Promotions Presents: CURTIS ELLER’S AMERICAN CIRCUS
Curtis Eller’s American Circus is a brutish, inelegant rock & roll outfit specializing in gospel music for atheists and dance fads for amputees. Mr. Eller’s wild-eyed vaudevillian banjo driven compositions describe a dreamlike vision of American history where all points in time have collapsed into one. Abe Lincoln, Buster Keaton and Joe Louis rub shoulders against a backdrop of circus disasters and sweatshop fires. The latest phonographic recording, “How to Make It in Hollywood”, is a compact collection of glittery show tunes, sentimental tear-jerkers and rock & roll rave-ups whose lyrics are populated with two-bit prize fighters, Hollywood has-beens, lapsed gospel singers, forgotten pop stars and about the filth and corruption of the Chicago meatpacking industry of the 1890’s.
