Bigelf Week: Day 1

(antiMusic) We love Bigelf so much here at antiMusic that we're bringing them back for another artist week! Last time we celebrated the U.S. release of their masterpiece 'Hex,' and we are now pleased to tell you that they have topped themselves with their latest release 'Cheat The Gallows,' which is in stores now. To celebrate this new release, we asked Damon and Ace to share with us the stories behind some of their favorite tracks from the CD. Here they are with today's song "Gravest Show On Earth"!

Damon: The perfect musical introduction to Bigelf. I wrote it over a decade ago and always planned on it being an opener for a carnival-esque record. I was listening to The Move non-stop back then(still am), I think they inspired the riff in this song but then it took shape into something really special and timeless. With it's sinister big top circus quality and twisted vaudevillian military imagery, there is no song like it. For me, it ranks up there with Sgt. Pepper and Karn Evil 9. One of my top 5 all-time Elven faves!

Ace: This song could be described as "Bigelf's equivalent for Sgt. Pepper on acid". Lots of different parts, time signatures, tempo changes and sound effects. This song was a true challenge to knock out in the studio.
