BALCONYTV DUBLIN 9/08/2009
PRESENTED BY TOM MILLETT
eon Flea Circus are a laid-back in-your-face funk band with their roots in the blues and their heads in the psychedelic clouds.
As a band their purpose is to entertain, and so night and day, they tirelessly endeavor to do so.
Not content to use, abuse and misuse quirky wordplay, lyrical jokes and lighthearted topsy-turvy, they do so on top of grooves that would make even your cool uncle blush, theyll also happily chat up your younger sister while your mother tells her friends what nice boys they are*
From Balls-out Blues to Chunked-up Funk, NFC* bring their audience through an array of styles. Their live shows draw together elements of Tango, German-Techno, Yiddish Klesmer, Off-Beat Freak-Beat, and if youre lucky, you might even get to waltz with that girl youve had your eye on for quite some time.
They denounce the established musical guard, and in doing so appeal to a very broad demograph : young or old, happy or sad, hungry or full of soup. http://www.myspace.com/neonfleacircus
