Circus Devils (2001 – 2017)
Robert Pollard’s freak-rock trio Circus Devils
says farewell with a pair of simultaneous releases for 2017. First is their 14th
and final album Laughs Last
, along with a best-of, double LP collection titled Laughs Best: The Kids Eat It Up
(with DVD included).
On LAUGHS LAST, Pollard and the Tobias brothers take a breathless romp through multiple styles, starting off with the brash hotdogger, ‘Get Out Of My Way When I’m In Town.’ Along the way we’re treated to the R.E.M. inflected ‘Do the Nixon,’ the organ-fuzz stomper ‘Teenage Rooster,’ and the defiantly conventional ‘Crucified by The British Press.’ Full of high humor and low drama, Laughs Last is the bold exclamation point at the end of Circus Devils’ 16-year run.
LAUGHS BEST (The Kids Eat it Up) – a collection of 30 speedy deliveries from rock and roll’s Twilight Zone – will leave you exhausted, satisfied, and ready for another spin. Circus Devils’ entire mind-bending catalogue is represented here, including three songs from the brand new album Laughs Last. While there is an emphasis on friendlier numbers, there is still plenty of the trio’s prog psychedelia on display.
Release date for both albums: February 24, 2017.
