At last the Kuhl brothers have teamed up to create their own brand of infectious Teutonic electro-dance.
After the insane debut single ‘Uber’, no one expected the ordinary from this UK based production team. ‘The Circus of Outrageous’ does not disappoint.
With tracks that draw in everything from human rights to female impersonators, from the first kiss to the last breath, from film noir to Shakespeare, ‘Circus’ is an intelligent combination of hard and soft beats with thought provoking lyrics.
Tom Waits meets the Pet Shop Boys? You may not be far off!
But listen for yourself. The press version of the album can be heard on the Ubertanz SoundCloud page: https://soundcloud/ubertanz
‘Circus’ has a truly international feel, with tracks in English, Dutch, German, Italian and Kuhlspeak. ‘Space Cake’ features a gentle and nostalgic rap in Dutch, while ‘You, Me, The Stars & Love’ speaks its words of love in Italian.
Kuhl finds their inspiration in the disco of the 1970s and 80s, with the beats of today’s stadium noise permeating the groove. Euro bands such as Army of Lovers, Gravitonas, PSB creep through the undergrowth of sound, with Skrillex, Knife Party and the like informing the cutting edge production.
‘The Circus of Outrageous’ was recorded at Kuhl’s work-in-progress studios on the borders of the M5 just north of historic city Gloucester. Working from a derelict stable block on an ancient farm complex, Kuhl have taken that old prog-rock concept of ‘getting it together in the country’ to a new lo-tech/hi-tech extreme.
Fuelled only with turbo strength coffee, the boys worked long into the night to create the kaleidoscopic journey that has become ‘Circus’.

Don’t Look Down: words Sandra & David Ireland music Michael Cooling You should have listened when we told you Love was all we really need You should have listened when we told you You should have paid us far more heed You should have listened when we told you Love was all we really needed You should have listened when we told you You should have opened up your eyes You should have listened when we told you But they filled you head with lies You should have listened when we told you That love was all we really needed Don’t look down We flew to close to the sun, mesmerised by the glistening ocean below us We soared and swooped, lost in our reverie Until the cold blue waters engulfed us Never forget… You should have listened when we told you Love was all we really need You should have listened when we told you You should have paid us far more heed You should have listened when we told you Love was all we really needed Don’t look down…
