A CD-only Gulls Window Circus show means we get to hear stuff that is only available (as physical product) on CD, or CD is the only format I have it on. This is a rock show. We get to hear tracks from several Raving Pop Blast! compilations (a Bristol label I first learned about from artists The Mudd Club), and the Caroline True Records comp ‘The Art School Dance Goes On: Leeds Post-Punk 1977-1984’. We also hear Barcelona-based Tarta Relena and Istanbul’s Gaye Su Akyol, a track from Chris Stamey’s latest, a self-released Gary Valentine CD (original Blondie bassist), recent reissues from New Math, Second Hand and LMNOP, the premier shoegaze band The Stargazer Lilies, and dug-up nuggets by Bone Of Contention, Further, Philip Rambow, William Carlos Williams, 10¢, Ivy and Silver Jews, and a couple of Harriet bands, The Coronets and Kisswhistle.

The eighth and final week of the Gulls Window Circus hard rock series: We complete the alphabetical series in the first 5 tracks, then we start a quick A-Z of CDs with this sound, bringing a lot of fun tracks that aren’t easily available on vinyl. Got the first 5 tracks in the show, White Zombie (Like Red Kross in week 6) cover Kiss, rather spectacularly. Black Sabbath make their 3rd appearance in this series, completing a view of the last 3 LPs Ozzy sang on, this time with the title song of the final Ozzy LP Never Say Die. In the CDs section, the recent movie The Creator had 2 Deep Purple tracks in it, and we hear Flight Of The Rat. Maggie Estep has a fun track (all hers are) that you will remember. 45 Grave is heard without Dinah Cancer singing in the epic track Slice O’ Life. Long Island 70’s band Good Rats sound just right. Inter Lorre’s original band Nymphs sound fine on one of their singles. Ten Foot Pole is really the HC band Scared Straight after they changed their name and sound (much like Ill Repute did back on show #606). 70’s artists in the CD portion include Cycle, John Du Cann, Terry Reid, Stray, Tear Gas, Thin Lizzy, Uriah Heep, and Vanilla Fudge. Permanent Green Light is the post-Three O’Clock band.

In this seventh week of the 8 week Gulls Window Circus hard rock series (I’ve been thinking more of it as ‘hardrock-like’) we speed through the letters S-W. Sonic’s Rendezvous Band is Fred Smith of MC5, The Split Squad includes Clem Burke, Keith Streng (Fleshtones) and Eddie Muñoz (Plimsouls). That Petrol Emotion is basically Undertones after Feargal Sharkey left. The Tourists is pre-Eurythmics, Tyla Gang is post Ducks Deluxe. Ronnie Spector rocks it out from her 1980 lp. I am very happy to bring you Spitboy, Starcrawler, The Strings, The Twinkeyz, The Velvet Monkeys, The Victims (The NYC ones, not the Aussie ones) and Wasted Youth (The English ones, not the California ones). Much to uncover, let’s get started!
