Part 27 in the 7″ played alphabetically series on Gulls Window Circus runs from Fabric to Furtips, with (as usual it seems) a slight side-trip into bygone letters to catch up with new finds. One such side-trip is the final Ed Gein’s Car single, which sees them expand their sound palette, and predicts later Scott Weiss bands such as Iron Prostate and Oscar And The Pidgin Sisters. A joy to hear the fist Flying Nuns – the Boston band, not the NZ label – single. All 6 singles in the For The Love Of Jesus series are played and sounds pretty darned fine. NYC babd 4 Skins – no relation to the UK Oi band, are here. New French music from Fotomatik, Gulls Window Circus favorites Further, and the inimitable Free Design.

One thought on “#493

    Recently moved back to the Boston area and experienced the joy of randomly flipping through radio channels on the drive back home from work and hearing your familiar voice and great tunes. You trained me on how to operate the DJ tables at WHRB – glad to see that you are still doing what you love.
