A new Gulls Window Circus series ‘Doubled’ – two side-by-side LP tracks from each artist, all LP tracks played on a real turntable in real time. I have professed a desire to play 2 tracks from artists in the past. 1988 seems to be ground zero for many of the tracks that get doubled today – Band Of Outsiders, The Jazz Butcher, The Godfathers, The Buck Pets, Close Lobsters, The Wonder Stuff, The Railway Children, The Ophelias. I think you will either wonder how they passed you by, or revel in sounds you used to love. Special tip: hear The Railway Children, Guadalcanal Diary, Close Lobsters, The Godfathers and The Jazz Butcher tracks.

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.

Vinyl LP tracks rock show. NYC bands Steel Tips and Band Of Outsiders, Australians Tropical F*ck Storm, New Zealander Robert, West Coast artists Chuck Prophet, Love, Alan Munson, The Dream Syndicate, L7 and Melvins are all featured alongside a bunch of UK artists. The first 6 songs seem inseparable to me – just listen as a chunk. Herman Brood as always is a joy. I love the bass part in the Alan Munson track. That Kinks track – wow. New Dream Syndicate shows them still striving, as are new Steve Diggle-led Buzzcocks. Melvins from their 4xLP acoustic record (!).

An electronic show by plan, but it spread its wings to reggae, deep house, disco and experimental/electronic. Artists from all corners of the world are featured, and the joy is how these different sounds blend together into a show that simply makes sense. Be sure to listen to The Chosen Few ‘In The Rain’ (AND the other track from them), Vibes4YourSoul’s re-edit of Lou Reed (AND the other track from him), Luxxury ‘Hello My Love’, Al Kent’s Chaka Khan re-edit (the first hour bookended by songs about rain). Entering the second hour, add Pol Ran ‘Gorąco’ and Saidera ‘Deixa Tudo Fluir (Uprockin’ Dub)’.

Today’s show is all vinyl LP and 12″ single tracks played on a real turntable in real time. Experimental/electronic sounds start the show with 33.10.3402, then we travel to prog-influenced cinematic tracks, instrumental funk, Italian soundtracks, then spend the rest of the show doing vector searches to the outer limits of musics new and old, suggested by the core focus of the show. Many good finds are surfaced along the way – take the ride. e sure to pull over for 33.10.3402, James Brown, Nico Fidenco, The Barrence Whitfield Soul Savage Arkestra and Floyd Lloyd Seivright. That said, listen straight through for the intended experience!

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’.

Carl’s living room series plays with ambient and prog sounds, mixing in some library, rock, African-tinged funk, disco not disco, and avant-garde. I think the pieces slip into sync where it seems they shouldn’t, and I think this show has a flow that works really well.

Fourth and final week of the reggae series on Gulls Window Circus breathes deep and expands into a sunny spot. A highlight is Freddie McGregor ‘Children Listen To Wise Words’ which uses the melody of Cat Stevens ‘Wild World.’ The Charmaine Burnett cover of Barbara Acklin’s ‘Am I the Same Girl’ is pretty great, as is Jerry Jones ‘Trying Times’ and Family Choice ‘Reggae Beats Goes On’. The two dubs from Studio One Dub that close out the first hour are nice. One is a dub of Delroy Wilson ‘Run Run’ which we hear right before it. Speaking of dubs, Creation Rebel ‘Vision Of Creation’ and Charisma ‘Every Dub’ are deep – all tracks rightfully earn their place and should bring you joy.
