Nights at the Circus

Album: Nights at the Circus (2007)


  • Along with its composer, "Nights At The Circus" gets a mention in the rather strange book Queer Tracks: Subversive Strategies In Rock And Pop Music, which was published originally in French.

    Bishi is said to identify with the "hybrid artist character" within. Nights At The Circus is an award-winning novel published in 1984 by Angela Carter (1940-92). The book is certainly off-beat if not weird, but the circus in this song is more down to Earth, even if it is not to be taken literally. >>
