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!
