An all 7″ singles show. Every track earns love, but here is context for some of them: Ford was a band from SF that Boston native Carolyn Keddy played in when she moved west to write for MRR. Joe Viglione’s label Vaurulven gets mightily represented by a bunch of singles today, including that of Phobia, who had Kurt Henry (who passed away last year) on guitar. Startoon is a band I discovered through Lenny Kaye’s Lightning Striking book and CD. Ed Gein’s Car is a band I went to school with. Limbo Race counted Randy Black among their members, and their track has a Burma sound to it. All tracks guaranteed.

13 records brought back from Poland from the store Paul’s Boutique in Kazimierz, bought during a recent Unsound trip, form the centerpiece of a Carl’s living room rock show that ranges from the 60s to the 20s. An unplanned New York Dolls track HAD to be brought in because the Adam Ant track before it had background vocals that suggested it. One pairing (Aztec Camera/Rickie Parsons) showcases two songs I’ve long thought belonged together. They are long distance relationship songs, which tie in to the US Thanksgiving holiday, which causes 1 out of 5 residents to travel long distance to celebrate together.

An electronic Carl’s living room (vinyl LP tracks played on a real turntable) starts with a Polish artist from the soundtrack to the film Tonight She Comes, moves to Lucrecia Dalt (who I experienced recently at Unsound in Poland and loved), soon moves into African tracks re-edited by several different artists, then goes into Indonesia with Wahono, takes a quick 5 track dip into original underground disco/re-edits, and ends with 2 Ukrainian artists before ending for-real with the appropriately titled ‘Ending’ from the soundtrack to Peter Fonda’s 1971 film The Hired Hand.

A CD spinning’ show – all CDs as opposed to the usual all-vinyl Gulls Window Circus fare. Boston institution Joe Viglione’s 1985 album ‘Love Songs Just For You’ was recently reissued on CD, and 1980 Tampa band The Strait-Jackets get their first release of any kind on a 2022 CD. These two discs bookmark a show that finds so many highlights that it’s almost not fair. Recent Harriet Records release ‘Start All Over Again ‘ by Snog 6 is here along with 2 songs currently on my fave list – the Swallow Tongue and April Showers tracks, alongside longtime faves Jackass, Airport Girl, Gilded Lil, Fanny, Beachwood Spark, Further, Suzi Quatro, Helen Love – heck, even Halfnelson (Sparks) and The Psychedelic Furs are here. The tracks I haven’t mentioned are no less deserving, they are just left for your own personal discovery.

Hard rock – what does that mean to you? This show gives a Gulls Window Circus slant to the genre, and features some artists you may think you don’t like, with tracks I think you WILL like. I loved programming this show and can’t wait to listen to it again. My personal faves? ‘Blue Turk’ has a great baseline and jazzy feel. David Coverdale, Pandora, Montrose, Detective, Blackfoot and Thin Lizzy round out my list of faves in this show, but I love it all – just let it play.
