what are the specific connections between Circus Contraption/the Circus Contraption Band, The Bad Things, A Midnite Choir/Midnite Choirand Moonpenny Opera? i know the bad things got their name from a midnite choir song and that a member of midnite choir was/is in circus contraption and that circus contraption and moonpenny opera share a few songs. one thing that makes this more difficult is that there dont seem to be any full pics on a midnite choir, the only pic i can ever find is this one:

and as far as i can tell this guy was also in circus contraption and moonpenny opera (but not the bad things).

but the bad things site also says that jimmy the pickpocket and wilcox were in a midnite choir as well.

so basically im confused. can someone break down which specific member/s are involved with more then one of these groups? and are there any other acts that are directly linked to these that im unfamiliar with? i like to have these holes in my mind filled in..

    Hey there, This is Jimmy the Pickpocket of Midnite Choir/The Bad Things. Okay, here's the deal: Greg, lead singer of A Midnite Choir was the accordionist and a main songwriter with the Circus Contraption band and was also the lead singer and main songwriter of Moonpenny Opera. The guy pictured on the Midnite Choir site was never in A Midnite Choir but was a member of Circus Contraption and Moonpenny Opera and now has a great band called God's Favorite Beefcake with the bass player of Moonpenny Opera/Circus Contraption. Mad Wilcox and myself were in A Midnite Choir, Wilcox on bass and me on accordion/organ and sometimes vocals. When the band split, Mad Wilcox and I formed The Bad Things and Greg went on to play in Circus Contraption and Moonpenny Opera. That picture on the Midnite Choir site is Schmootzy the Clod who was never in the band. A little confusing I know since we all share members and songs but that's the lowdown from the source. Thanks for listening and caring!

    p.s. I don't think A Midnite Choir ever had a portrait taken. We were so unorganized back in those days.

    Actually it was me who uploaded that pic. Now it is removed since we all know it's not an actual one. Can't remember where I got it but I was mistaken myself... Sorry guys.
