Event description

Description

Great melodies. Powerful hooks. Surprising twists and turns. That's CIRCU5 - the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist, Steve Tilling (TC&I/Johnny Warman).

The CIRCU5 band is:

  • Steve Tilling - vocals and guitar
  • Matt Backer - guitar and vocals
  • Mark Kilminster - bass and vocals
  • Greg Pringle - drums

The CIRCU5 band members have written and performed with artists including Pete Townshend, Steve Winwood, Julian Lennon and Alice Cooper.

"Steve Tilling has given us a musical spectacle that will stand the test of time. Great songwriting combined with superb musicianship and a concept that works, CIRCU5 is a triumph." - Progradar

"Debut album of the year - it's absolutely stunning." The Titus Jennings Experience

"Steve Tilling has made a compelling debut. It's a tight, dark intelligent album… albeit one plentifully and carefully decorated with accessible hooks and melodies... the depth of Tilling's wanderlust is his most progressive asset." - Prog Magazine

"The only way to play this album is loud, proud, and with a massive smile on your face. 9 out of 10." Frame Music

"CIRCU5 would unquestionably have been a huge ‘hit’ back in the day. And unlike some of Tilling’s prog contemporaries, who have a tendency to overegg – and often overcook – the pudding, it is equally palatable today. Impressive." Get Ready To Rock

**

Mellotronanism blend early 80s Neo-prog from Ed Percival's band Airbridge with new material.

MELLOTRONANISM will be performing their first full band show of 2019.

Mellotronanism is:

  • Ed Percival - vocal, guitar, keyboards
  • Matt Bell - bass
  • Terry Arnett - drums and vocals

“Prog-infused indie rock, but more of an XTC/ pastoral end of Genesis slant on things rather than the likes of Yes or ELP. Think also 80s-era King Crimson. A stripped-down, in no way indulgent, take on the genre.” - Bugbear

“Engaging” - Prog Magazine

“Great pedigree…this is pretty good” - Chris Parkins

“Thoroughly enjoyable, I was singing along” - Mark Spencer

“Love it!” - Chris Progzilla Pearson

Mellotronanism is 75% of Fossil Fools, who are performing their XTC tribute show the following evening at the same venue.
