    There are some "freaky" things afoot in the music world!! An artist called Junior Mesa released an EP last week, called...




    Unlike some other songs of recent(ish) times which have been inspired by and named after my work, I get the feeling that this is unconnected to my books -- as I've documented over the years, the phrase "Cirque Du Freak" has entered the public consciousness since I dropped it on an unsuspecting world back in January 2000, and sometimes people use it who not only aren't readers of my novels, but might never even have heard of them. I suspect that's the case here, though I could of course be wrong, and maybe Junior Mesa is actually a fan of Mr Crepsley and co, and knowingly used it as a tribute. As I say, I doubt it, but hey, I'll be glad if proven wrong!


    Anyway, whether the EP is connected to my books or not, I figured I'd flag it up for anyone who wants to have a listen. You can hear all five songs here: https://audiomack.com/junior-mesa/album/cirque-du-freak


    This has reminded me of the Cirque Du Freak "album" playlist that I put together on YouTube a while back, linking to eight songs by artists who definitely WERE riffing on my stories.
