Stars for Searchlights EP -- 2003

Drawing a Blank LP -- Released September 16, 2009.



"Music where melody is king, but words rule from behind the throne.”

A flickershow is a movie, and Flickershow’s music has a touch of the cinematic in its clever lyrics. Plenty of romance, of course. Glories and falls along the way. A hilarious comedic turn. Offbeat characters who fascinate and amuse. And the cinematography is mighty fine too.

The music? Clever, hooky, eclectic pop, with a dash of Belle & Sebastian and Elvis Costello, or perhaps Ron Sexsmith or Camper Van Beethoven.

Singers Julian Sark and Eli McIlveen have been playing music together since high school. Years later, they reunited in Toronto and snagged the name Flickershow from a bit of old-timey slang in The Green Mile.

With the release of their 2003 debut EP Stars For Searchlights, and the addition of drummer Clark Allore, Flickershow began to expand from their folky acoustic sound into a more eclectic mix of highfalutin' pop and groovy rock. 2005 brought Flickershow to the screen, first with a performance on TVOntario’s Studio 2, when they were selected as finalists in the Ontario Song Contest, then with the independently produced video for “Invincible”.

The band have finished making their first full length album. Produced by Don Kerr (The Rheostatics, drummer for Ron Sexsmith). Entitled "Drawing A Blank", it was released in September 2009.
