Part 19 in the 7″ played alphabetically series on Gulls Window Circus continues catch-up on the letters A-E, which started in 2018. I had so much fun with this one – I think there is a certain rhythm when you play nothing but 7″ singles – same as a 12″-only show or LP tracks show, each have their identity. There are many one-single wonders in this show, which I point out as I introduce each. Special attention to: The Blackouts, Broadcast (not the UK Broadcast, this one is from Kansas), The Desert Wolves, DIAMONDS (almost Echo & the Bunnymen epic in reach), Domino Rally With Magnus Lawrie (Urusei Yatsura is the backing band), fond Boston history with Dub 7, and sublime closer East River Pipe.
