circus murders – west street

I honestly can’t remember any information about this band.

Circus Murders – West Street.

Heres a bit of insight from Moe:

Circus murders were made up of Roly Skender, who played in the band Skender, and more recently won the 2008 WAM song of the year as Roly Skender and the Tonics , Mat Cheetham, now with Downsyde, and one of the Horan brothers – other brother Rex horan played with Cinema Prague. The title of the album, West St, refers to a very short street in west perth, where members of the band lived in shared houses, along with members of cinema prague and a number of other bands in the 90s. Highlights of this album: confusion in a spanish blind man, harry’s cafe and Lockjaw

  1. Circus Murders were a four piece made up of Roly Skender, who has since performed with a band under the name Skender, one of the Horan brothers (other brother Rex Horan played bass in Cinema Prague), and some other guys.

    The title of the album, West St, refers to a really tiny street in West Perth where Circus Murders, Cinema Prague and a couple of other bands rented houses during a prolific writing/production period in the 90s.

    Opinion: This album is really well written and produced, and still gets a spin at my house on occasion. Standouts: Lebanese Cafe, an ode to the popular william st coffee lounge which no longer exists, Lockjaw, an instrumental, which is awesome, and Jack high

  3. Circus Murders were ace, excellent instrumentalists and habitual improvisers. Would’ve seen them maybe 2 dozen times, never boring, always leave with a smile on yr face. I already had West St, wasn’t there another ?self titled album, will give blood for a copy.
