The second week of the chronological Mukatsuku special takes us from Mukat 036 – Mukat 053. The label’s identity is clear at this point (official mission statement is “strictly vinyl only, singles only record label” and “Jazz, soul-jazz, and other black music record label”). So many highlights that I would say just to close your eyes (unless you’re driving) and listen to the music. The series will wrap up next week.

Mukatsuku Records is a vinyl-only, singles-only label from the UK. It has 80 releases, though about a quarter of them, those before 2013, are from an early period I had never followed. It also has two sub labels: Guynamukat, with 6 releases from 2010-2012, and Mukat Edits, with 9 releases, 2012-2014. Today starts a 3-week Gulls Window Circus special where all releases I have access to will have at least one side of the record played. Discogs describes the label’s sound as “Jazz, soul-jazz, and other black music record label” which I will use so you know what is in store. This is the first show in 2022 and is the landmark 500th show (yay!).

The second week of Carl’s living room. We are listening to vinyl LP tracks in no particular order or plan, just playing tracks as if we were sitting together listening to records. Two bands I have know about for ages but never really checked out are back-to-back: Sharks and Love Spit Love. The former is Chris Spedding and Andy Fraser, and the later is Richard Butler post The Furs. A few weeks ago in the alphabetical 7″ series we hear 4 Skins and Golden Starlet. Here they appear from non-7″: 4 Skins from a 12″ (their only other release) and Golden Starlet from the anthology LP. We have 3 instances of famous folks outside of their normal orbits. Big Star’s Alex Chilton in a New Orleans cover band, Mark Sandman playing outside of Morphine in Hypnosonics, and Duff McKagan in pre-G’n’R band The Living. Robert Gordon has Tish & Snooky doing background vocals on The Catman (an ode to Gene Vincent), and a couple of unknowns (Mother Trucker and Noah) pull their weight with the company they sit in. Good stuff.

Carl’s living room is the latest Gulls Window Circus series, and the loosest – join me as I just plain listen to records with the recorder on. This week is all vinyl, all LP tracks. It starts with a track from Raybeat’s unappreciated ‘The Lost Philip Glass Sessions’. NYC band Sorrows’ ‘Love Too Late​’ LP, which THEY didn’t appreciate, gets re-recorded 40 years later and redeemed as ‘Love Too Late​.​.​. The Real Album’. Mark Wirtz in his 1970 band The Matchmakers bring goodness, as do Crazy Horse, with the humbly titled but incredible sounding ‘Your Song.’ That track gets followed by a Somerville MA contemporary artist that nails the Crazy Horse spirit – Doug Tuttle. Other Boston area treasures [Turbines, Richie Parsons] bring joy. 80’s NYC bands Steel Tips, Glorious Strangers and Details At Eleven bring me back to my childhood, as does the live Cure track from their first NYC appearance ‘Live At Hurrah, NYC, 15 April 1980’. Also bringing me back, though not as far, is the Versus ‘Let’s Electrify!’ reissue which we hear a track from.

Part 31 in the 7″ played alphabetically series on Gulls Window Circus. This week we travel from Hanterhir to Heroin. There are 2 covers this week: Hanterhir with Bowie’s Dancing Out In Space and Herbal Flesh Tea with Hawaii 5-0. Boston SSD vocalist Spring breaks the expected mold in his Chicago band The Hedonists. Corin Tucker’s first band Heavens To Betsy sounds great. Walter Lure’s first post-Heartbreakers project The Heroes get air. Absolute song of the week belongs to The Heat. All tracks could be expanded upon here, best plan is to listen and discover.

Part 30 in the 7″ played alphabetically series on Gulls Window Circus. This week we travel from Green Seagull to Martin Hannett & Steve Hopkins. I enjoy the tracks I had never paid attention to before: Grout, Graham, Gravity Wx, Greenhorn, Gutterball, Grover, and The Hangmen. The flip side of The Gremies 7″ is a treat I never explored either. The RSD 7″ different version of Fire Of Love is real nice, and it is always a joy to hear Guv’ner, Gretschen Hofner, and Paul Haig.

Part 29 in the 7″ played alphabetically series on Gulls Window Circus. This week we travel from Girls With Credit Cards to Grace Budd. Nice to hear The Gits again. Always a joy to hear The Go-Betweens and Vic Godard. The Godheadsilo track resonated with me more than it used to. Go-Kart cover the same track that Fun Boy Three did a few shows ago (Summertime). The second hour starts with one song out of order, but I love this track and only just got it. It is Avocadoclub, on the label Firestation Tower that we have been experiencing other bands on as well. The Glidshees are also on that label. Alphabetized 7″s are fun!

Part 28 in the 7″ played alphabetically series on Gulls Window Circus. Dots and Bilal & Nikki Jean start us off out of order with a Squeeze cover. Gerty Farish and The Dots do Kraftwerk covers. Fuchsia does a Pink Floyd cover, which is funny, as last week The Dots did one too. A band Gulls Window Circus loves the heck out of (Gilded Lil) have a great track, also luvin the Droogs, Unnatural Axe, Gaunt, Generics, and Gerbils tracks as well as the Girls At Our Best one, which has the harshest cold stop ending I can recall.

Part 27 in the 7″ played alphabetically series on Gulls Window Circus runs from Fabric to Furtips, with (as usual it seems) a slight side-trip into bygone letters to catch up with new finds. One such side-trip is the final Ed Gein’s Car single, which sees them expand their sound palette, and predicts later Scott Weiss bands such as Iron Prostate and Oscar And The Pidgin Sisters. A joy to hear the fist Flying Nuns – the Boston band, not the NZ label – single. All 6 singles in the For The Love Of Jesus series are played and sounds pretty darned fine. NYC babd 4 Skins – no relation to the UK Oi band, are here. New French music from Fotomatik, Gulls Window Circus favorites Further, and the inimitable Free Design.
