The Invisible Mind Circus is a 4 piece band whose mission is to create pop music with a definite nod to 60's garage/psychedelia while keeping a strong relevance for today.In other words The Invisible Mind Circus is:"Runnin' Round the Future With Shades of Yesterday".The band was started by Mike Armstrong(guitarist/songwriter).After several failed attempts Mike recruited the services of veteran Knoxville musicians Duane Parks(multi-instrumentalist) and Rick Vance(drums).The trio rehearsed 13 of Mike's original tunes to play live while looking for a 2nd guitarist.In the meantime the opportunity arose in early April 2004 for the band to work with former Superdrag drummer turned recording engineer/producer Don Coffey Jr. so the gear was packed up and carted down to 613 Studio in Knoxville to begin recording sessions for a possible E.P. Once the boys got started with Captain Coffey at the helm twiddling the knobs they realized after their 3 day stint they had accomplished much more than the average bear so the E.P. idea was scrapped and a 2nd 3 days of studio time was procurred to create a full-blown 13 song cd! About this time veteran indie rock icon Tim Lee(Windbreakers) dropped in to play some psychedelic hammond b3 sounds and some downright nasty fuzz guitar as any good neighbor would do. After the 2nd round of sessions the material was mixed in the Coffey sound lab by Captain Don with helpful/annoying suggestions from Mike and Duane.A quick trip to Yes Master Studios in Nasville to see Jim Demain for mastering and the band had it's debut cd "Look Inside".In September 2004 Jeff Comas(Candy Cream and the Wet Dream)joined the band on guitar.Jeremy Moore is the new drummer for the IMC. -www.allmoroccogift.com
