Morgen was an American psychedelic rock band formed in Long Island. Their only album, “Morgen”, is considered one of the best heavy American psychedelic rock albums of the 1960s.
Morgen was founded in 1968 by Steve Morgen, Bobby Rizzo, Murray Schiffrin, Mike Ratti, and Barry Stock. Originally, the band was named “Morgen’s Dreame Spectrum” but was later changed to simply “Morgen”.
In 1969, record label Probe (ABC) released the group’s sole offering.

Circus Devils was originally conceived in 2001 as a side project to Robert Pollard’s main work with Guided by Voices. Beginning with the release of their first album, Ringworm Interiors, Circus Devils dismissed the styles of Pollard’s other musical endeavors for a more experimental approach, taking an ominous and nightmarish tone, exploring the themes of good and evil. According to the group’s whimsical website bio, Circus Devils formed because a dog-faced man approached each member on separate occasions to deliver the message, “Circus Devils is Real.” . Like this story, their lyrics are often unsettling fictional tales of horror delivered within deconstructed rock operas. Each Circus Devils album is distinguished by a theme, concept, or production style which sets it apart from the band’s other albums.
