CD Review from Liar Society

Posted by curtiseller on Friday, July 18, 2008

Here's a review of my new CD that appeared on Liar Society

On Wirewalkers and Assassins, Curtis Eller's American Circus presents an aural psychotronic vision of Olde Timey Americana.  The overall sound of the album is vaudevillian country and folk: Eller's banjo tunefully mingles accordion, lap steel, violin, and else, but the lyrics are just off-kilter enough that you'll never mistake this for mere historical recreation.  Oddly, references to personages both modern and anarchonistic abound: John Wilkes Booth and the Civil War seem to co-exist with Richard Nixon and Fidel Castro.  The effect is something like finding a tube radio from some alternate reality that only plays songs about dusty roads, boxing, and circus catastrophes.  And what a brilliant tune it is!

--Jack Shear, Liar Society
