"The greatest British bands came out of the grass roots touring circuit. I fully support the CircuitLive tour and urge anyone interested in the future of music to get to these gigs."
Circuit Magazine has been poking a finger in the public ear for a couple of years now, grazing the knees of the establishment in the cause of great live music. Radicalism in pop is a factor that has been sorely lacking in recent years, saturated with egos and too much loot, the music spoiled. "Yesterdays bright young hopefulls have become today's over-indulged rock elite' treading the tedious career path from the Met Bar to the Priory"
Now - with a little funding help from the Arts Council of England - OCircuitLive¹ go some way to providing the antidote in their second installment of short sharp shocks around the country. The idea is pure and simple: The best new talent performing in 12 towns over 12 nights in November, plus special guests from today¹s most cutting-edge labels - Poptones, Ugly Man, Twisted Nerve, Shifty Disco. No headline, £1 entry to all - no guestlist, no liggers.
