Circus Devils

Robert Pollard (Guided by Voices, Boston Spaceships) and producer, multi-instrumentalist Tod Tobias’ side project straight from the DEPTHS OF HELL, Circus Devils.

I just found this not too long ago and have been humming it ever since: Mike Patton’s cover of Ennio Morricone’s Deep Deep Down, originally sung by Christy for the Danger:Diabolik soundtrack. Patton’s version really builds upon the original and sounds great live with a full orchestra backing him.

I also played around a bit with the look of the image as well. I wanted to make it look like it was printed on old, warn newsprint. Interesting experiment.
