Midnight Circus

Christian Bollmann - Vocals, Guitar, Trumpet, Recorder
Torsten Schmitt - Vocals, Guitar

same (Bellaphon 19108) 1972

This was a progressive folk-rock duo. Their only album was recorded in the Clerks Studio with Peter Hauke producing. Also several guests were featured on the recordings: Thomas Engel (drums), Veit Marvos, Davy Crockett (bass), Rainer Marz, Jan van Rosendaal (guitar) and Peter Hauke (drums, percussion).  The musical style on the album was a typical Bacillus-rock as Hauke's other productions. The best track was "November Church" - a beautiful, slow folk song with a dark atmosphere.
