The Shanklin Freak Show started out as a twisted concept by founder member, Mr Strange in 2003. By 2006 they had become a full live band and began their quest for world domination. Inspired by ICP, Manson, Zombie, Cooper and a host of alternative artistes, their freaky circus rock coupled with a blistering live show made them a force to be reckoned with. Having graced the stages of Club AntiChrist, the IOW Festival, Bestival, Whitby Goth Weekend, the Underworld and opening Bizarre Magazine’s 2011 Summer Ball at Scala in London and supporting such luminaries such as Hanzel und Gretyl, Lene Lovich, Elbow, Devilish Presley, Obsessive Compulsive, The Futureheads and Eureka Machines to name but a few. The Freak Show continue to make their mark on the underground scene and dominate the world.
They have released a number of CD’s to critical acclaim, 'Act I', 'Act II – The Light Fantastic' and in 2011 'Welcome To The Show' demonstrated to the world what the Freak Show had to offer, garnering one reviewer to give them a hearty 10 out of 10. They are currently working on their new album, 'The Last Show On Earth' of which the single of the same name is taken from.
The Shanklin Freak Show are now booking for 2013 and 2014.
