A Genuine Freakshow Disbands
2013-12-21 by Savannah the Ghost | 9 Comments

Reading, UK's indie ensemble A Genuine Freakshow have decided to call it quits after over half a decade of making music.

A message posted to their Facebook page reads as follows:

We have decided after many years to bring an end to A Genuine Freakshow.

Our reasons are three fold: financial (we haven’t got any money), geographical (we now live further away from each other than we did before) and musical (less of this than the previous two).

First of all we would like to thank everyone who has ever come to one of our gigs, bought a record or a tee shirt (or an Ultimate Fighting Combo!). You have quite literally kept this band going for longer than we thought was possible, so thank you.

We of course want to thank all of our families and friends who have supported us and put up with our lengthy absences, last minute cancellations and us turning up at their doors at 2 am with another 7 people to house. We are aware this has not always gone down well!

We would also like to thank the following people who have been instrumental in our (mis)adventures:

Erik Nielsen
Jordan Fish
Sarah Thirtle
Linda Serck
Tom Robinson
Sarah Sheppard
Mike Hunter
Tim Sidwell
Dave Maul
Pete Lambrou
Ben Hobbs
Sam Horder

There are also a few bands who we met along the way that have been unbelievably talented whilst also being the nicest of folk:

Cats and Cats and Cats
Fell City Girl
The Wutars
Spring Offensive
Arthur Rigby and the Baskervylles

Anyways, thanks for everything, we’ll see you in another life brother.

Tim, Simon, Jack, John, Jon, Mel and Marianne.



They have released a new song as a goodbye to fans, entitled 'Dead In the Skirting Boards', which can be downloaded for free at their website:
