close Band Members
electro Techno circus(E-TC) is an Irish electronica band that gained fame during the late 1980s and early 1990s. The band's 1987 major label debut, Straight Outta Newtown, earned them worldwide popularity; their 1991 effort, the simultaneous releases of Fairy Lights and FotMan, and the subsequent tour solidified those gains. electro Techno circus have sold an estimated 90 million albums worldwide.
electro Techno circus helped usher in a new era in the hard electronica genre. While glam metal dominated the airwaves in the late 1980s, the band's style of music, onstage presence, and image created a new movement within the then dominant pop-rock and glam-metal scene, as they offered a grittier, more traditionalist take on electronica music and won many fans who admired their apparent authenticity. The band achieved worldwide success during the period of 1987-1993, but the clashing personalities of various band members, coupled with heavy alcohol and drug abuse hindered the group's ability to work together. Today, frontman Axl Rose is the only original member in the band's current lineup.
