FLYING CIRCUS feiern ihren runden Geburtstag mit einer selbstbetitelten „Best-of“-Kollektion

It could have all been so festive and beautiful: in 1990, the blues-progrock formation Flying Circus was founded in Grevenbroich near Düsseldorf. And now, on the occasion of their thirtieth anniversary, they wanted to go on an anniversary tour, with a "best-of" album in their luggage, on which 15 songs from the seven studio productions released so far can be found: partly re-recorded, partly remixed, partly in the original version. This record, simply named after the band, has recently been on sale. However, it's only in its 31st year after the quintet's formation. And the live performance falls flat. Frontman Michael Dorp is nevertheless not frustrated: "There are also better times coming again for us creatives", the 52-year-old says hopefully in the interview.
