Today’s show has 6 pairings of Television or Tom Verlaine tracks with suitable companions, then a bunch of songs his stuff makes me think of. I did not play Felt, who may be the most Television-like band, but I will have them covered in weeks to come and I wanted to make lass obvious parallels. The tracks that have thrilled me and stuck in my head the most are ‘Penetration’ and it’s New Order pairing (both just incredible), and the TV21 / Psychedelic Furs pairing. I also love the dB’s track ‘I Lie’.

All vinyl as always, an LP tracks Carl’s living room show with 11 feels-good-together pairings, then 3 David Crosby and 4 Jeff Beck tracks to celebrate the life and works of those artists. Special attention to the Traffic track that has been going through my head, the Stargazer Lilies track from their brand new record, and the David Bowie remix of a track from his The Next Day LP.

A Carl’s living room LP tracks rock show with three 7″ tracks tucked in as a bonus at the end of Part 2. Some 80’s goodness from ten records gifted to me, which shaped some of the other selections. Special attention should be called to ALRN, an early Scott Miller (Game Theory) band, and to The Yummy Fur’s Bowie cover. EVERY track fought long and hard to be included here and has a rightful place in the Circus.

13 records brought back from Poland from the store Paul’s Boutique in Kazimierz, bought during a recent Unsound trip, form the centerpiece of a Carl’s living room rock show that ranges from the 60s to the 20s. An unplanned New York Dolls track HAD to be brought in because the Adam Ant track before it had background vocals that suggested it. One pairing (Aztec Camera/Rickie Parsons) showcases two songs I’ve long thought belonged together. They are long distance relationship songs, which tie in to the US Thanksgiving holiday, which causes 1 out of 5 residents to travel long distance to celebrate together.

An electronic Carl’s living room (vinyl LP tracks played on a real turntable) starts with a Polish artist from the soundtrack to the film Tonight She Comes, moves to Lucrecia Dalt (who I experienced recently at Unsound in Poland and loved), soon moves into African tracks re-edited by several different artists, then goes into Indonesia with Wahono, takes a quick 5 track dip into original underground disco/re-edits, and ends with 2 Ukrainian artists before ending for-real with the appropriately titled ‘Ending’ from the soundtrack to Peter Fonda’s 1971 film The Hired Hand.

Wasn’t exactly what to call this show, so it is tagged as Carl’s living room, international, soul/funk, soundtrack, and electronic. Qualifying as ‘international’ would be Giuliano Sorgini , Trio Balkana and Anni-Frid Lyngstad , ‘soul/funk’ would be Esther Marrow, Curtis Mayfield, Home Boy And The C.O.L., The Prolifics, and Slave, ‘soundtrack’ would be Nico Fidenco and Tangerine Dream, ‘electronic’ would be DYYU∩E, Loveshadow, and MLO & Spacetime Continuum, and Alex Ho. That leaves Miriam Makeba with a Buffalo Springfield cover, Les Baxter And His Orchestra with classic exotica, Smith & Mudd with a contemporary tribute to library music, Scream And Dance with post-punk, and Michael James Pollard, a one-off 7″-only discovery from the 80s.

Carl’s living room means vinyl LP tracks played on a real turntable in real time. A well put together rock show awaits you. With lots of unusual pairings that work well. Ed Gein’s Car paired with Jefferson Airplane? Yup. Christie McVie paired with Dream Syndicate? Yes again – many such pairings (my faves include Wire w/Tad, Dictators w/Pandora). You get a double dose of Bob Mould, with him even sounding like Psychedelic Furs on one of them. The show ends with an unknown 1979 7″ out of Maine (The Bumstead’s) sent by a Gulls Window Circus listener.

Today we spend some time in Africa [Rob, William Onyeabor, Orchestre Massako, Rim And Kasa], and with artists from other countries that have strong connections to Africa [Plunky And Oneness Of Juju, Gaston, Tony Allen], then Northern Ireland [Andwella], France [David Keaton], UK [Róisín Murphy] and finally a bunch of USA artists [Orange Krush, Quincy Jones, Yvonne Fair, Bobbi Humphrey, Sly & The Family Stone, Fay Hill, Reanna Coleman]. A soul/funk delight. Every time I listen to these, its like discovering them again – William Onyeabor, Tony Allen, Bobbi Humphrey, Fay, Devil In The Flesh soundtrack, Rim And Kasa, and Reanna Coleman tracks.
