Q: Are you the same line up as Still Life?
A: Hi, thanks for the question. There are three of the original members of still life in Circus Envy, James, Mike and Andy. Mick replaced Phil on percussion when the band changed its name and then later Leigh replaced Paul on vocals. There is still a Myspace site active for still life but the band is no longer together. Circus Envy recently covered a still life song "Lost all Feeling" for BBC Radio Humberside's Raw Talent show for their tenth anniversary. This was because still life played the first live set on the show 10 years ago. Any more questions please do not hesitate to ask.
