An LP tracks rock show in groups of 3. Was good to hear Orange Juice and Band Of Outsiders (who went perfectly with Love And Rockets). Coil tested my skills getting rid of the FCC violations. New Sparks is way better than I hoped. The ‘Keep It In Motion’ GBV tribute comp on Bunnygrunt’s Silly Moo Records brings 2 awesome tracks to the second hour. The In Camera / PIL segue that close out the second hour works so well. Every song has a story – listen and love.

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.

The Sister Sledge song ‘Lost In Music comes to mind as I listen to this 4 part rock show in one gulp. There is a portion starting halfway through part 2 where Munster Records 7″ reissues are played in a row, but so much special stuff is here for you that I only want to draw your eye to that for factual accuracy. Enjoy!

Starting off with a stellar cover of Neil Young’s ‘Down By The River,’ this show keeps a mellow vibe even as it goes to the tropics with Frank Eddie, Australia with Steve Maxwell Von Braund (half of Cybotron), Italy with Mushrooms Project and Blue Gas, Morocco with Maalem Mahmoud Guinia, Vienna with Monoton (Konrad Becker), and Belgium with Allez Allez. Gulls Window Circus skirts the world as always.
