  WHERE ARE THE LYRICS AND CREDITS ?  
     
   

Although we hated to render our
Circus Money MadLibs Game
obsolete,
we were duty-bound to post lyrics and credits
eventually --- and so we did.

  WHAT'S ON THE COVER ?     
     
   

The cover image was created specifically for Circus Money.
If you dig the vibe, you may be inspired, as we were,
by the stunning 19th century masks of the Yup'ik people. *

Downloadable jpegs, pics, and banners are available on
the Circus Money Graphics page.

 
    * Why not use an actual mask?
Excellent question! And a corker of a story
for another time.

  WHAT'S THE PROMO SCENE ?  
   

During pre-release, you voted on how we should play
the promo game.
Your ideas had all the variety
and inventiveness one would expect from Beckerphiles,
but mainly, you called for more sounds ASAP.
We did our best to comply -- including
early CD delivery and a free download
remix track for our Newsletter subscribers.

On our Circus Money Press and Promo page, you'll find
some photos, CD art and banners, links to selected
interviews and events of note, and an expanding file of
review blurbs.

.. and there's always those YouTube clips #1 and #2;
We're still looking for more. Anybody?
