Flying Circus

In middle-1968, Doug Rowe (b. New Zealand; electric guitar) teamed up with many Australians, Colin Walker (vocals/percussion), Greg Sophistication (vocals), Terry Wilkins (bass) and Adam Wynne (electric guitar) in Sydney to create an organization that played nation rock. The music group agreed upon with EMI Information with their behest documented two singles in the after that well-known bubblegum pop design, ‘Hay Trip’ and ‘La La’ both which had been Australian strikes in 1969. The music group was leading a schizophrenic lifestyle; known because of its teenybopper strikes but using a live group of US nation rockers, using their very own originals gradually getting added. The initial album shown this; it had been a variety of the singles, many Byrds songs, several Rowe originals and curved off with some oddities such as for example ‘Locks’. A lot of the second half of 1969 was a write-off for the music group as they dropped their equipment within a street incident and a fireplace. In 1970 that they had their third strike single, obtained guitarist Crimson McKelvie (b. New Zealand) and documented a second record of all-originals. The music group earned the 1970 Australian Country wide Battle from the Rings amid controversy. Large guitar music just like Cream was well-known at the moment in Australia and Traveling Circus certainly didn’t suit this mould! To toughen in the sound Rowe sacked McKelvie as well as the music group got on Sam Discover from Sherbet, and documented their third record before departing for THE UNITED STATES. After half a year they came back for a short visit in middle-1971, and then lose Observe to Fraternity. Back Canada they documented Gypsy Street for Warner Brothers. Sam Observe returned towards the collapse in 1973 for the documenting of Last Giggle. The music group toured as support for Lighthouse, however when Observe and Terry Wilkins stop to become listed on the headliners, the others disbanded. Rowe used Greg Quill’s music group (as did Observe) before time for Australia to try out with numerous Sydney nation rock organizations. McKelvie led many rings in Sydney before time for New Zealand and program work.
