Prior to the 'Prophets', Jem and Dylan cut their teeth on a variety of projects. Mr Panufnik used to be in a band with Simon Radcliffe, now one half of Basement Jaxx, called President Groovestone (ahem!).
Following that he released records as Soul of Man and ran his Finger Lickin' label. Barnes gave up his job as a set designer at the Royal Opera House to fiddle with machines that went "squelch" and "bing", set up the Sunflower label and released tunes under the Earl and Mutiny monikers.
After two years hard graft the album is finished and we would not be speaking out of turn if we were to say the Circus just rolled in to town.
