ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A departure from Circus Contraption’s usual turn-of-the-century fare, "The Show to End All Shows" imagines a family-owned circus with all of the glamour and glitz of the 70’s and 80’s. The time, however, is now, and the glamour shows signs of decay. A sense of imminent destruction looms as things begin to go awry under the tent. The Ringmaster (a Jim Jones-style patriarch), insists upon the willful denial of their world’s demise by not only his progeny, but also the audience.

This joyful romp to oblivion will draw inspiration from the circuses of excess in those decades of decadence, and feature “traditional” circus acts such as trained pink poodles and aerial mermaids, all re-imagined by their human counterparts in Circus Contraption and scored by the incredible Circus Contraption Band. Their latest twisted take on Americana also tells the story of the show that must go on, despite all evidence that the show, and perhaps the world, will be extinguished before the closing act.
