Circu5: With hairy rocker that leaves you humming for weeks…..

Circu5 - Skin Machine

Circu5 (pronounced circa five) is the brainchild of Steve Tilling, a British multi-instrumentalist and guitarist/vocalist for TC&I (the band of Colin Moulding and Terry Chambers from XTC). Said about Circu5, «Sound as a efferent offspring of Foo Fighter and King Crimson».

The self-titled debut was a compelling conceptual rock with a prog twist, wrapped in a story about a child raised as a psychopath.

On 1 December 2020, UK progressive rock band, Circu5 release a new single Skin Machine ahead of the follow-up to their self-titled 2017 debut album.

«Skin Machine will be available on all streaming and download services. Skin Machine is a monstrous freak show exhibit in musical form − bulbous, pungent and spectacularly tetchy», said Circu5 front man, Steve Tilling. «But those who dare listen are in for a hairy rocker that leaves them humming for weeks. It showcases everyone’s abilities and is a great example of how the second album’s shaping up».

Skin Machine marks the first recorded outing of Circu5’s new line up, which, alongside Stev Tillinge, now also features Paul Clark (guitar, ex-David Cross Band), Mark Kilminster (bass, ex-Tin Spirits) and Lee Moulding (drums, ex-Rewire the Time Machine).

«The new single and album continues the story of Grady: a test-tube-conceived psychopath on the run from the state. Following rounds of psychedelic experiments, Grady was released from the Circu5 compound at the end of the first album«, said Steve Tilling. «Our next album explores Grady’s attempts at avoiding capture, execution and indoctrination into a death cult. You know, cheerful stuff like that Skin Machine’s 1 December release is accompanied by an animated video from psychedelic artist, Von Grey and a crowdfunding campaign for Circu5’s second album».

Lyrics on Skin Machine,

None of the others can give you what you need

I’ll make them suffer and make you want me

You are the one

Now prove them wrong

Let’s pull the wires from the machinery

And start a funeral pyre with our dark alchemy

Jagged tongues of fire will caress and consume them

Kneeling to admire our divinity

Holding me close, she said…

Left to corrode, an outmoded device

Reset the code and perfect your disguise

Programmed to oppress with no hope of redemption

Mechanical made of flesh, toy messiah will rise

Twisting the rope, she said…

Break free from your skin machine

Let me be your Magdalene

Or go back to your old routines

On with the show

None of the others can give you what you need

I’ll make them suffer and make you want me

You are the one

Now prove them wrong

Let’s pull the wires from the machinery

And start a funeral pyre with our dark alchemy

Time to learn, never turn, watch them burn…

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6048 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
