19th Best Album of 2008!

Monday, December 22, 2008


New York City's Lucid Culture Press has named my CD "Wirewalkers & Assassins" in their year-end Top Album and Top Songs lists! Here's what they had to say.....


# 19. Curtis Eller’s American Circus – Wirewalkers & Assassins The oldtimey banjoist is also a first-rate songwriter with a potently lyrical edge and a distinctly oldtimey New York ragtime feel.

TOP 100 SONGS OF 2008

# 7. Curtis Eller’s American Circus – After the Soil Fails Intensely lyrical , historically aware, apocalyptic nouveau-ragtime cautionary tale by this superb NYC banjoist and oldtimey songwriter. From the Wirewalkers & Assassins cd.

# 72. Curtis Eller’s American Circus – Sugar for the Horses Aptly aphoristic, sardonically cynical oldtimey ragtime number from the excellent NYC banjoist/tunesmith. Also from Wirewalkers & Assassins.

# 92. Curtis Eller’s American Circus – Firing Squad Fast, fiery ragtime with one of Eller’s characteristically pointed lyrics. Also from Wirewalkers & Assassins

Curtis Eller is a banjo player, songwriter and rock & roll singer. A twenty-year show business veteran, Eller and his band The American Circus have developed a devoted international following based on dynamic, highly physical stage performances and an extensive catalog of curious phonographic recordings. The iconoclastic musician has spent more than a decade relentlessly touring the club, theatre and festival stages of a dozen countries in North America and Europe. Eller is a gifted and prolific songwriter who's banjo-driven songs describe a dreamlike vision of American history where all points in time have collapsed into one. The American Circus is diligently at work on a new full-length album on which they have augmented their indelicate, rock & roll rhythms with a tempestuous cloud of horns and an graceless choir of backsliders in their quest to bring Eller's historically evocative compositions to vivid, cinematic life.
