Dexter Jones' Circus Orchestra on the commercial free Pluto Radio stream.

Picture of Dexter Jones' Circus Orchestraphoto maline casta Dexter Jones’ Circus Orchestra music withholds hints of Swedish progressive rock combined with powerful guitar melodies and catchy drums. It stretches itself between hard driven riffs and accoustic ballads. The band has been compared to everything from Mammoth Volume and Bob Dylan to Blue Oyster Cult and Thin Lizzy. Comparisons aside: -This is probably how the 70`s would sound today. Its a true gem with endless potential!

Dexter Jones’ Circus Orchestra formed in 2000 in Umeå, Sweden by Tia Marklund, David and Daniel Israelsson, Håkan Dalsfelt and Kent Jonsson. The debut record “The Losers are Back in Town” was recorded in 2003 and released by Freebird Records as a 7” vinyl.

Work on a full length album started shortly after and the self titled debut (on Freebird Records) was released in 2004, containing
10 dynamite songs. Slowly things started to happen. DJCO was booked at Eurosonic Festival January 2005 and toured mainland Europe twice, together with the cult band Hypnos 69. The debut LP got great reviews and was even hailed ”the album of the year” by some of the leading European rock magazines. The songs could also be found on a few compilation records such as “The Ultimate fuzzcollection” (Fuzzorama Records).

During 2006 some changes were made in the band.  (as compiled from the band's website).
