ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
$1.00 OF EVERY SALE OF THIS CD IS BEING DONATED TO HELP FIGHT THE DISEASE INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS (IC)

During the summer of 2004 Circus of the Shattered Monkey® (a.k.a.Cirque du Singe Brisé® or simply le Cirque) emerged from a small Cambridge, MA art gallery. It exists to be a forum for the true artists in music- experimentalists, tradionalists, eccentrics, misfits and all of those that are not like everybody else. We like to call them monkey enough.

Le Cirque grew to being presented in six different states and in reputable rooms from The Knitting Factory, NYC up to Club Metronome in Burlington, VT and is staged like an actual show and not just some night in a club.

Manning the healm as a crazed preacher man is the show’s producer Rich Van Vleet. His constant sermon is staging the statement of how quality talent in music still exists in this modern era and how it’s being overlooked and supplemented with “the pretty voices of those otherwise talent less American Idol pawns, big breasted divas and mass produced bands with cookie cutter sounds designed for a ten minute shelf life.”

Also in the mix is le Cirque's house band Hypaspace serving as an audiences' cellestial guide for the evening in between sets. They bridge the gaps in between an evening of eclectic excellence.

No show is ever the same under our big top, except for the assurance that once you enter it, you've exited the mainstream.

Are we total freaks? Hardly. We are the ones that present our creative souls onstage, the ones that actually have something to say and the ones that still dare to stretch music's limits. Pick up our new CD Le Cirque: The Soundtrack to find out what being under our big top is all about.

Great album - an eclectic mix of outstanding artists!!
This album is a great mix of artists from a variety of different backgrounds. Weaving through a range of styles and emotions, there is a song on here for everyone. "Blue Yonder" and "Idle Hands" are personal favorites, but there are so many good songs on here you're guaranteed to find something you'll absolutely love! A great album with a great cause.

I love this disc :)
Holy Moley, this CD took me entirely by surprise. At first I thought, how cute some local bands got together to support IC, so I bought the disc for that reason just like letting the boyscouts wash your car or buying a candy bar for some youth group in front of the supermarket. As a mom (and IC sufferer), I just have a tendency of doing that stuff. Then when I got it and put it in I was very surprised.

Why don't people know about these acts? How come they're not famous? Ben Blanchard and Ryan Fitzsimmons are 100% outstanding, that "Don't Shake The Baby is running through my head constantly and Bryan McPherson is a knockout at the end and wow that Hypaspace is amazing. This CD never leaves my CD player.

Again, I am really confused as to why aren't these acts more so known.

This is a great CD for people who have eclectic taste in music, it varies in styles but still maintains a consistant mood that stays with you. The music is from emerging artists, it does not stink of money and false hype, it smells of art and true spirit.

I've listened to this CD for a whole week now and I'm still discovering some sen
I bought this CD solely because it is assisting in raising money to help fight the disease IC that my mother has had to put up with for about 10 years now. It's horrible what this disease does and even worse that no one knows about it.

This guy Rich Van Vleet is an IC sufferer too and put out this soundtrack CD of his cool project. I just bought it to show my support and discovered that this guy has an awesome taste in music. This CD makes me want to see his show and get into the other acts on this disc even more. I am in love with Ben Blanchard. Sean Altrui frightens me in that cool way and The Corduroys know how to rock. Then there's this Ryan Fitzsimmons guy and a crazy dude going off on a rant about how much he hates the cover of "Paved Paradise and Put Up A Parking Lot" and it all opens with a freak out spoken word piece. I genuinely love this CD!

Thank you Mr Van Vleet for acknowledging a disease that so few support and for creating something that I'm very curious in seeing. Get this show to Florida soon!
