A CD spinning’ show: Buried among a clutch of songs so good you might think they are covers, are 2 covers that are good – Artful Dodger doing Eddie Cochran and Cherie Currie & Brie Darling doing T.Rex, both to stunning effect. The Curt Boettcher produced single by TV actress Cindy Malone (Batman, Bewitched, Love American Style) is great, and the Peter Bagge band Can You Imagine? are as well. Oiler vocalist Beth Capper needs to be heard, as does Atomic Rooster guitarist John Du Cann. Thanks to Harriet Records (recent release High Rise Group is here) for introducing Gulls Window Circus to the Pittsburgh label Igor Records, which you will hear with Bone Of Contention and Minimalist Love Gods. The ones I didn’t mention? If I had written this 5 minutes ago or 5 minutes from not maybe they would have been the track’s I’d mention: listen to all.
