Since "Forth" (2010) the Flying Circus hasn't been heard from. The reason was several changes of musicians. The 28-minute and six songs strong EP "Ones And Zeros" proves that the band around singer Michael Dorp can be expected again. His voice, which lies about in the middle between Geddy Lee and Robert Plant, convinces especially on the almost purely acoustic "Follow The Empress". The FC sound is still located between early Rush and Led Zeppelin, but well mixed with a lot of Retroprog- and Hardrock- parts. A violin fits well into the concept. Even the Rolling Stones piece "Paint It Black" has new and exciting sides to it. The mini album ends with the multi-layered and slightly oriental "Back To The City", which is supposed to be a glimpse into the near future. Because in this style the band is planning a concept work. One can be curious.
