Week 3 of the 12-week Brazen Ladies series of 7″ singles spun in real time and played alphabetically. Today we go from Cheesecake to The Courettes in the first hour, and Cosmetique to Destroy All Monsters in the second hour. I think of the Persian vampire movie ‘A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night’, with its use of vampirism as a metaphor for not fitting in to society. The tracks on repeat in my head this week are from Chia Pet and Coping Saw in the first hour, and Courtney Love, Cub and The Delgados in the second hour.

Week 2 of a 12-week series of Brazen Ladies – a new Gulls Window Circus series – inspired by the graphic novel by Penelope Bagieu. All tracks are from 7″ singles, played alphabetically. Today we start with The Budget Girls and end at Cheesecake. Today I think of the Persian vampire movie ‘A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night’, with its use of vampirism as a metaphor for not fitting in to society. I am finding the tracks from Birdie and Black Box Recorder from the first hour, and Butterglove, Cake Like and Call and Response from the second hour running through my head.

This week begins the grandest project of Gulls Window Circus ever. Week 1 of a 12-week series I’m calling Brazen Ladies – the idea was conceived independently, but expanded exponentially after reading the graphic novel ‘Brazen: Rebel Ladies Who Rocked the World’ by Penelope Bagieu. The shows are spun in real time on turntable. All tracks are from 7″ singles, played alphabetically. Today starts with The Action Time, and runs through Brown Velvet Couch.
