Fusion of punk rock and circus music. Usually performed in costume at traditional venues, it has recently experienced an underground transition. Heavy distortion and lack of lyrics characterize this genre's unique and ecclectic sound. While is does lack lyrics, much of the energy and emotion is translated through occasional grunts, growls and giggles. Comedic overtones and enthralling guitar licks have been the substance responsible for the explosion circus punk music.
"Black Maiden is the best circus punk band!"
"That guy may be a punk, but he ain't got the circus."
"Let's go to the circus punk club Saturday night."
"Do all circus punk lead guitarists play flying V guitars?"
Circuspunk is a new sub-genre of punk/bizarro literature scene created by Charie D. La Marr aka Persiphone Hellecat aka Kotton Kandy - a former professional clown. The genre includes stories that take place in circuses, carnivals, midways, sideshows and also includes stories of birthday party clowns, freaks, magicians and costumed characters. With some elements taken from her experiences in the world of clowns (she won't tell which are true and which aren"t) the genre is a blend of truth and fantasy that takes in the usual bizarro mixture of fun, sex, satire and splatter. Also included in the genre are dark stories, Lovecraftian stories, noir stories and other variations and combinations of contemporary literary genre.
That circuspunk story about the clowns was really funny
