Pre-order ‘Circus Devils: See You Inside’ book

In October 2018, Jeremy St James and Johnny Savely set up the listening party series ‘Discussions in the Cave’ in the Guided By Voices facebook group. All Circus Devils’ albums were being discussed, while the people in the group listened to one of the 14 records from A to Z. Band member Todd Tobias provided notes of his reflections on the music. This led to a book about the psych rock formation, their albums, and his own history of making music. The book offers a personal glimpse into the band’s playfully dark, psychedelic world.

‘Circus Devils: See You Inside’ existed in PDF form for a while, and we are so happy to announce there is going to be a physical version of the book as well! The text and images have been updated by Todd. David Crunelle did the beautiful design. It’s a 204 pages book, full colour, A5 format, softcover.

SOLD OUT / shipping in September

Between 2001 and 2017, Circus Devils – the Ohio freak-rock trio founded by Robert Pollard (Guided By Voices) – released 14 full-length albums, each containing its own distinct sound and story-world. Remaining firmly under the radar throughout its run, the band provoked head scratching from music critics while providing fans with experimental cinema for the ears.
