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!

Fifth week of 8 in the Gulls Window Circus hard rock series covers the letters L-N. Several bands follow the artist from very popular previous bands [Screaming Trees > Mark Lanegan Band , Psychedelic Furs > Love Spit Love, Dead Boys > Lords Of The New Church, Nymphs > Inger Lorre, Codeine, Come, Volcano Sons > The Martha’s Vineyard Ferries, Hanoi Rocks > Michael Monroe, Husker Du > Bob Mould], a few of the artists went on to bigger fame in subsequent bands [The Living > Guns ‘n Roses, The Mike Gunn > Charalambides, Mother Love Bone > Green River > Pearl Jam]. All songs have mentionable aspects, but I want to draw your attention to the Menace Dement track, the fact that Map Of Africa is re-edit wizard DJ Harvey, and Manikins, who were formed as Cheap Nasties in Australia.

In this third week of the Gulls Window Circus hard rock series, we leave the 70s (after the first 4 songs, overflows from last week), letting the sound endure through time. It is in these coming weeks that amazing discoveries will be made. Hard rock by artists you might never expect to have dabbled in these waters. Special attention to Baby Grande (Steve Kilby pre-Church), Corpse Grinders, Arthur Kane (post-New York Dolls), Dark Carnival (Niagara, post-Destroy All Monsters). Every track has earned its place, details given after each 3 song set.

Second week of 8 in the hard rock series. This week completes the original 70s artists (and adds a Gulls Window Circus favorite: alphabetization). Next week we will move on to bands that honor this sound in post-70s recordings. In this show there are only 4 well-known artists, with obscure tracks carefully chosen [Black Sabbath, Cactus, Frampton’s Camel, Spooky Tooth]. Outside of that, many fine discoveries to start the new year with, setting the stage for 6 more weeks of unexpected finds.

December 26, 2023

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.
