The first show in a Gulls Window Circus hard rock series, which starts with 2 weeks of late 60s to 70s artists, then moves for several weeks to artists drawing from the hard rock well in modern times. This week lesser known entities mingle with names you know, and 3 tracks deviate from the stated bounds: Kyuss with a ’95 track, Night Ranger with a 2011 one and Deep Purple (covering Love!) from 2021. The lesser-known (but must-hear) are: Coloured Balls. Cradle, Cromwell, Orang-Utan, Three Man Army, and Heavy Rain. The rest are names you will already know, but I chose less obvious tracks from each, so now… it is time to dig in …and rock.
