LP tracks crossing a large area in sound, era and locale. Some interesting pairings, such as Joy Division paired with Ringo Starr (it works!), or the more sensible Superstar paired with Sidewalk. Spend time here and you may just find something new to dig deeper on.

70s show this week and next week. My fave pairing is David Coverdale and Captain Beefheart (what the heh?) but the many pairing here are all fun, many of them superior to the aforementioned, plus you get a segment from Nectar’s 1974 prog classic ‘Remember The Future’ to keep it (un?)real. Segue of the day: Demon Fuzz into Coloured Balls.

4th of July here in the US is a big holiday – Gulls Window Circus has a big change today, leaving 20 weeks on non-rock shows and returning to rock. In typical fashion, this show varies in timeline and geography, intermingling the known, the unknown, Europe, the US, older and newer. Cover star today is Carl wearing a T-Shirt of Boston’s Richie Parsons, who fronts Unnatural Axe, but also has a solo career with melodic pop.
