OXBOW, CAMDEN UNDERWORLD '08 (organart)We apologise for the lack of Fight Like Apes this week... This will not happen again..

That’s Eugene from Oxbow right there in his underwear, where? Shopping for underwear? Shopping as democracy? For a transitory enchanted moment?  Such strange tongues, who is to understand them? And Sunday became Monday and six became nine and the ribbons were still as pink as could be and no one was any the wiser. Low just south west of Iceland nine eight six, never put it off, do it today, create. Where is that licorice bootlace and it came to pass that the people who you never see, the ones who drive your cabs and clean your floors and suck your eggs and keep you going with pegs in place and tie up your property in licorice bootlace and...

CHAPTERHOUSE?! Yes indeed, here's some rather grainy footage of Chapterhouse performing 'Love Forever' with Ulrich Schnauss on the Sonic Cathedral stage at Truck last weekend - find out more over at www.soniccathedral.co.uk

DEERHOOF have made 'Fresh Born', a song from their forthcoming album, 'Offend Maggie', available as a free download.

DEMO OF THE WEEK
DEBUTANT – Eternal Life - Debutant is “a one man project with a strong focus upon creating a lo-fi atmospheric sound to augment a sort of acoustic dream pop approach” so says Phillip. Phillip Quirie is Debutant and he’s deliciously quietly delicately achieved what he set out to do. This is beautiful; four basic home-made lo-fi bedroom recordings – delicate, basic, fractured, dreamy, creamy and very simple. Uncluttered and turning the lo-fi option and the basic equipment on to a warm positive vibrant less is so much more piece of beauty. Four dreamy textured lo-fi pieces/songs - simple words, simple acoustic guitar and delicate peddles, simples lines and words (simple artwork). A lo-fi dreamy Galaxie 500, Daniel Johnston feel (from Aberdeen, Scotland) and all done just so right. www.myspace.com/musicbydebutant

ALSO CHECK OUT 
IDIOT SAVANT – Last Cigarette - A CDr demo in a cheap little blue plastic wallet and a throwaway piece of paper when the whole thing deserves far more time and artwork and if anyone cared this might have been a great single. Crying out for some artwork and some kind of effort that backs up the rather good music. They apparently call themselves a “history-rock” quintet. Kind of dark and brooding and quietly epic in an English boys kind of way – like one of those indie rock bands who sing of steams trains and majestic games of chess, of far away English battles and the inevitability of failure and saying the wrong things, the things that sounded so right in his head. I don’t know, why go to so much effort and then just send it out in such an uncaring way? I rather like this - www.myspace.com/idiotsavantbanduk

THE JET BOYS – B.A.D – Messy little demo from the East Midlands of England, clearly early days, recorded live in a ropy studio in one raw take. Basic early steps and things still forming, I kind of like it though. An Arctic Monkeys/Libertines meets a glamish punky New York Dolls flavoured thing. Nothing to shout about or recommend yet but there is something here, a band to keep a spare eye on just in case they build on this start – www.myspace.com/thejetboys1

NEW ALBUMS WE’RE LISTENING TO THIS WEEK
This week the best new things we’ve been listening to were... 

ALBUM OF THE WEEK
KAYO DOT - Blue Lambency Downward (Hydrahead) - This is not fast food. This is a banquet of rare ingredients and exquisite constructions, to be digested over days, not minutes.  It's sweet and beautiful and not for the faint-hearted, dripping with opiate languor in one place, curling into unsettling, chilling landscapes (landscapes out of the films of Jan Svankmeyer and Brothers Quay) in another, building slowly slowly to a peak o. Kayo Dot - for all intents the work of composer/multi-instrumentalist Toby Driver - are masters of the slow boil, the long journey.  Listen to the samples of their 2003 album Choirs Of The Eye on kayodot.net and you'll hear ranging avant-thrashouts that melt down to whispered poetry, and woozy, heat-hazed songs that gradually work up to thunderous metal denouements like an escalating arms race no-one can remember starting.  Kayo Dot are, in common with any truly great creativity, almost impossible to describe.
           A good deal of Blue Lambency Downward can be compared to the more abstract passages of A Plague Of Lighthouse Keepers, the legendary twenty-minute masterwork of Van Der Graaf Generator.  Kayo Dot are that avant, psychedelic sensibility concentrated and amplified; lusher, more sensual. Their contemporaries are Time Of Orchids, equal in mastery of the romantic and hypercomplex. The lyrics are magnificently obtuse, a fever dream of Dada and Coleridge, both absurd and deliciously tactile, and it all comes together on the opening, title track's swooning, stuttering, richly strange climax.  Driver's elegant voice is endlessly listenable, part torch singer, recognisably from a rock background and wrapping effortlessly around some edgy melodics, hinting at middle-eastern quarter-tone singing.  Violin (from, sax, clarinets, malletophone, organ and synthesizers take equal parts to the band setup (and the synth throbs and drones are treated as part of the arrangements in a way few if any have succeeded with).  Indeed, despite echoing the more psychedelic, stranger moments of Led Zeppelin this is barely a rock band, more a contemporary classical work that can stand up to the high standards of that world, crossing over into classic and avant jazz. Having said that... The Awkward Wind Wheel is the heaviest, most straight-up piece on this album, showing The Mars Volta how it should be done (apparently Kayo Dot are worshipped by contingents of Mars Volta campfollowers) and maybe referencing Voivod a little.  Elsewhere, Right Hand Is The One I Want and the opening build of Symmetrical Arizona meander into limpid backwaters, easy to get lost in if you're in a hurrying mood.  That's the essence of listening to Kayo Dot, and Driver's previous band Maudlin Of The Well: take the whole journey with them, wherever it goes go with it - the getting there makes the peaks and depths that much sweeter - www.kayodot.net
 
ALSO CHECK OUT
SHEARWATER – Rook (Matador) - You know how it works, word slowly seeps around but there’s too many bands and you can’t possibly hear them all and the language of birds so often floats on by - lost on the wind and in the tree tops and yes, this album has been out for getting on for two months now and we’re late. You stash the name somewhere there in the file you keep in your head marked bands I must make a point of checking out when I get a moment - put this album at the front of file and mark it urgent. Rook is one of those wonderful things that once in a while sneaks up and you suddenly fine yourself consumed by the all encompassing simple majesty and the need for telling and sharing and you must hear this, you really must. Rook is the kind of album you want to call people about, Rook is a beautiful spiritual album, a powerfully quiet album, a wonderfully considered album and everything you may of heard about Shearwater will be confirmed as right with the first minute of the album opener and those wistful notes across the water.  A real gem, a quite piece of wistful crafted beauty alone in solitude and worded so right and rolling eyes and “themes within meditate on man’s intersection with the natural world: the hunter, and the prey; the extinction of species; the world after human beings are gone...”. Metaphor for human relationships; “a dark fairy tale encased in a cycle of songs”.  That soaring almost falsetto voice and the fading arc light and the gentle wind and the quiet prophecy and the sings from ancient times and the things the moon is tell you. Lush and gorgeous and worth every bit of praise you already heard from elsewhere. A beautiful album you need to make time to check out (fine artwork as well) - www.matadorrecords.com/shearwater

THOMAS FUNCTION – Celebration (alive) – Sixties flavoured garage pop rock for those who dig White Stripes and a hint of Buzzcocks and a slice of Television with their scratchy U.S rock n’roll chaotic breakfast and psychedelia and their Violent Femmes and their new wave old school lo-fi rock ‘n roll goodness. www.alivenergy.com

NADJA – Desire In Uneasiness (Crucial Blast) – And album of heavy instrumental dream-sludge weaving intensity from Canada. Yes is an uneasy desire and moody doom and dark dank industrial sludge and throbbing lustmord gristle and monstrous bass grind and remember that band Kong who would play with four PA stacks, one in each corner of the room? Nadja are a brooding Godflesh of a duo, two bass players, so you don’t need to be a genius to work out this going to be a dark moody churning low-end challenging to the senses – well, worth taking up that challenge, here’s the link should you accept – www.crucialblast.net

ORGHIA – The Dusk (Casket) – A healthy blend of old school thrash and Swedish style death metal. They’re from Italy and well, that’s about the size of things... www.myspace.com/orghia

SANCTORUM – Ashes Of Redemption (Casket) – Another slice of brutally honest metal from Colchester band. An impressive blend of muscled up old school thrash and ambitiously melodic crunch. “Relentlessly ferocious headbanging metaaaaaal” once more – www.sanctorum.co.uk

SEBASTIAN BACH – Angel Down (DR2) - The one time Skid Row front man with another solo album. He pretty much was/is Skid Row really and if you liked that mix of larger than life 80’s hair metal and hard-edged bluesy rock that Skid Row kicked up in their best days, then you’ll be more than happy with Angel Down. While others from that era are sounding well past their sell by date and ready for a rocking chair, Seb Bach is still kicking up a decent enough storm. Yep, if you like your Skid Row and your radio friendly big-hair hard rock delivered with a bit of slave to the grind bite (and you can handle a ballad or two) then here you go. Attempting a cover of an Aerosmith classic – Back In The Saddle – was probably not the best idea ever, kind of brings things down a bit. Still, Skid Row were good, this is good, all is good and love is a bitchslap, or something like that... – www.sebastianbach.com

GROUND MOWER – Grown Mower (Casket) – Are we still listening to yer man out of Skid Row? Lustful big hair flavoured hard rock ‘n roll from Stockholm, and once again of you like your well played traditional hard rock then Ground Mower are worth your ear and whatever else you want to throw their way – www.groundmower.se

DISARM – By Any Means Necessary (Imprint) - Are we still listening to yer man out of Skid Row? Nah, more yer punks who like Motley Crue or Warrior Soul and that glam-edged metal side of things. They’re from Mexborough (wherever the hell that is?), Somewhereville, England for those of your reading in black and white. They’re kicking up a healthy storm of punky glam metal and sex and plastic and shrink it, suck it woof woof woof. New, raw, young, lean, mean and faster pussycat kill kill kill, Ricky was a young boy, bark bark bark, out this week and no doubt coming to a venue near you via a broken Transit van any day now - www.disarm.info

RON FRANKLIN – Ron Franklin (Alive) – That stripped down early Bob Dylan meeting of folk and garage blues, urban and rural, hope and delight. Ron Franklin is a rather fine singer/songwriter from Memphis – www.alivenergy.com

BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME – Start From Skratch (World Records) - Oh I don’t know, these polite three line reviews and more damn albums from bands that sound like other albums from other bands. These people do that North American whiny emo New Found Blink 42 My Green Chemical Day Glory thing and saccharine sweet lines (that cry out for a baseball bat around the head) and you’ve heard it all before and just what is the damn point of all these albums from bands that sound like other albums from other bands and don’t come around here singing songs of the broken hearts delight -  I mean, even if you like this dumbshit emocrap what would you want another album that sounds like al lthe others you already have? Why! www.betterlucknexttime.org

SABATRON – The Art Of War (Black Lodge) - Some kind of bombastic wall of keyboards, guitar and choral backing vocals and some kind of prog/pomp flavoured death/battle/euro metal beast like a thousand spam-eating Vikings with Europe records and rather drastic operatic Accept meet Dragonforce ambitions – make of that what you will.  www.sabaton.net

OXBOW, CAMDEN UNDERWORLD '08 (organart)HARVEY MILK / OXBOW - Camden Underworld, 15th July ’08 

-  Would have gone just for Oxbow, would have gone just for Harvey Milk after hearing the new album, so the two of them together what a prospect of a gig! A marriage made in ... heaven.  Harvey Milk are real one-offs, strangely straddling a world of heavy sludge dooooooom, and a Melvins/avant blues thing. Those long, long infrasound bass notes would have got the elephants down the road at the zoo talking back, if they hadn't been moved to the country. There's more, though: massive hits of from-the-guts emotion. They're a four-piece fronted by guitarist Creston Spiers - he howls his heart out for us.  The band is fiercely tight and into it, their sound ferociously life-affirming. You have to warm to them and Creston's utter commitment, and I look over my shoulder to see a wall of delighted faces.  Bang in the middle of their set, he roars/weeps a song to the tune of I Vow To Thee My Country (aka the tune in the middle of Jupiter in the Planets suite) about (his?) boy being destined to be a soldier. Some in the crowd aren’t sure what to make of it at first: is this sudden tunefulness and delicacy satire, do we laugh? It soon makes sense, gets the cheer of the night. Harvey Milk disbanded a while back, and recently reformed due to total word-of-mouth love.  There's absolutely no angle, no posing with this band, and the audience - all mixed up, girls and boys, one-offs, watching enchanted rather than self-consciously headbanging in prescribed sludge manner - reflect that.  Anyway, they cut loose when they're done with the seismologist-confusing, and rock like you wouldn't believe. Its proper complex and mathy in places, raw and massive and delivered with the same power as the headlong stuff. 

You'd have to be Oxbow to follow that. 
 

OXBOW, CAMDEN UNDERWORLD '08 (organart)Oxbow have a lot in common with Harvey Milk - the two bands complement each other to perfection.  Another four-piece, another journey into the massive and throbbing, this time more of the blues than the ground-shaking. Oxbow are fronted by Eugene, a legendary performer. Pages could be written about Eugene's life so far, an interesting guy who's as nice offstage as he is terrifying on. He's wearing a suit and tie at the start of the set, and in this heat you know that's not going to last. He is, as ever, hypnotic, sexually charged, gripped by a madness of sick swamp blues and Night Of The Hunter preacherman. Suddenly he's without most of his suit, all gleaming ex-weightlifter muscle, baobab thighs and spurious tats, darting lithe around the stage. There's gaffa tape over his ears - to protect from sound or because he's been in moshpits that violent?  His energy is matched by the matching long, lean guitarists (are they brothers?) and godsend drummer, and the four just go off to some other place together, taking us with them.  A couple of times, Eugene has a word with us, even making us laugh (with a deadpan tale of attempting to buy underpants in Camden), and just like Harvey Milk you have to warm to them. Which doesn't diminish the awe when they take off again. There are a couple of numbers from their magnificent An Evil Heat, and a lot that resemble a kind of more straightforward super-heavy blues, but it's all at a level that goes way above just being a gig... a gig where everybody blinks at each other at the end of a long set and three encores and goes, huh, over already?  One of those.

SINGLE OF THE WEEK
ONE DAY AS A LION – One Day As A Lion (Anti) – Hey now, there’s nothing better than raging against that machine and those first Rage records still sound good fresh where so many others have lost that shine. This is the debut EP from  One Day As A Lion, and this is a heart pumping slice of adrenaline junkie earfood from the off - that voice, that attitude, that questioning bite and that call to arms, good to see that some evolve and still manage to stick to their guns. One Day As A Lion are the barbed voice of Rage Zack De La Rocha on vocals and filthy sounding keyboards alongside Jon Theodore (formerly of Mars Volta) on drums and they sound like they might roar for more than one day here. They say this is a stripped down attempt to capture in the sound that sentiment that read on a wall (back in 1970) that “it’s better to live one day as a lion than a thousand days as a lamb”. The big guitar riffs of Rage ATM aren’t here but those keyboards have bite and those vocal lines could be no one else. No one else says it quite like Zack De La Rocha, this is a defiantly good exploration of the possibilities that exist in the space between the kick and snare – www.onedayasalion.org or www.myspace.com/onedayasalion

ALSO CHECK OUT 
KONG – Blood Of A Dove (Brew) – A relatively new band from Manchester (and not to be confused with any of the previous Kongs – you could so easily confuse them with that lot who played with four PA stacks one in each corner of the room – no, this is a new Kong), and this their rather powerfully good debut single (limited edition of 500) out on July 28th – excellent heavy monster loud large-animal progressive hard rock and Melvins confrontation that’ll roll right over you in such a good/big way. The B-side - A Hint Of Rennit Innit – stands out even more than the a-side, this is good, they deserve to be called Kong, the name rightly belongs to them now and looks like Brew have come up with the goods again - www.brewrecords.net / www.myspace.com/kongdom

KAROSHI BROS – Love The World (We Are Woodville) – Some hi-energy electro dance funk and something that was once called F*** The World and and and they sounds like Sesame Street and Studio 54 and electro funk and The Go Team and Go-Go and lashing at the desperate freaks in a my space peep show – damn fine pop-funk-electro-disco music. www.myspace.com/karoshibros

THE VIVIANS – a Human Angle (Electric Toaster Entertainment) - Fizzing little debut single from the Scottish band, urgent indie guitar rock delivered with gusto, energy and attitude. Busy riffs and a human angle and there’s always something else they need and divided they stand, together they fall. That urgent bite and bluster that bands like Three Colours Red had in their early days, two guitar rock energy, a hint of punky glam, a hook or two and that knowing swagger that a band like this has to have – www.myspace.com/theviviansdivided

UNDERGROUND RAILROAD – Sticks And Stones (One Little Indian) – A brooding indie flavoured post-punk piece of goodness from the London based French band. Lost touch with them back in their early demo days. Good to see they’re evolving nicely with their straight forward, edgy enough, Jesus And Mary Chain feasting on Pixies feel, nice bit of menace in there  -  www.indian.co.uk  or www.myspace.com/urailroad

THE EMERGENCY – Forever / Too Much (Metal Postcard) - If we were still in the 80’s then this would be a fine slice of futurism, but we’re not so this is a fine slice of front line authentically spot-on retro electro pop and post punk funk and electro handclaps and Cabaret Voltaire and fade to grey and they’re from Melbourne and switch it on switch it off... www.myspace.com/theemergency

THE HAIR – Half Cut (4 Plus 5) - Hair, grows on your right, give it time, then it gets out of hand, half cut and drunk on it all and The Hair then. Indie new wave funky block parties and a mix of the jerky and the taut and just that little something, get it for free from www.thehairfreedownload.com

'RE-ISSUE/best of OF THE WEEK
DOOM – Rush Hour of The Gods (Violent Change) – Originally released back in the hardcore crust punk give us a sip of your beer zine powered better days of 96. They were a big part of the ever evolving musically violent politically/positvely/negatively charged UK crust-punk underground of the 80’s/90’s and their long since deleted album Rush Hour Of The Gods is re-released, re-mastered and packed with extra tracks on August 11th – and it was a pure pleasure to get to blast some roaring blistering spitting Doom over the FM airwaves on our radio show last weekend (well someone has to do it!). There’s three tracks on here that came out on split 10” with Cress back in 98 – thus you fifteen full slice of good for you soul raging slices of angry Doom. www.myspace.com/violentchange

ALSO CHECK OUT
BIFFY CLYRO – Singles 2001 – 2005 (Beggars Banquet) – Always found them rather average and quite why they’re so big and popular has always been a mystery, the cynical side would mutter something about hype and marketing budget and if you throw enough of it at the wall then some of it will stick. Radio friendly marketable to the masses alternative indie rock you might say, loved by lots and here it is, twelve tracks that just might be joy, discovery and invention to those who missed out on their earlier days – www.biffyclyro.com
