Summer Means Fun as The Fantastic Baggys say: surf music on Gulls Window Circus in the Carl’s living room vinyl LP tracks played in real time series. The show starts with some funky instrumentals and soul then moves to 50s, including some more recent practitioners of the sound, before settling on surf bands, with many awesome tracks to love. Tracks I would draw you to include Eddy Senay ‘Shakedown, Chuck Armstrong ‘You Got To To Deal With It (This Superworld)’, East Coast ‘I Found You’, and from the surf half: The Vettes ‘Devil Driver’s Theme’, The Glaciers ‘Holiday Hill’, The New Dimensions ‘Bongo Shutdown’ The Belairs ‘Mr. Moto’ and The Tornadoes ‘Beyond The Surf’.
