*** Epilogue to the album Circus Maximus ***

tape five circus maximus electroswing world music retro vintage

“Of course the title had nothing to do with a “circus” itself as you will have imagined.
It´s about the world, the big circus – the crazy things that happen…
Of course we know “bread and games” since the days of the Romans.
But when I selected the title in late 2014 – I could not even guess what a real circus it soon would become, also here in Germany.
Hoping history is NOT repeating and there will be a way out…”
