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 Sounds > 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.
