“"Sugar or lemon or something else completely?
Any significance is arbitrary, or is it? What ever did happen to the once buzzing-with-life fanzine-powered alternative music media anyway? Why hasn’t it evolved? They said we’d have jetpacks and moving pavements to ride on by now? Where are the exciting new music websites alive (with typos) and that defiant excited ‘zine you-gotta-hear-this attitude that enthused us so much back there? Why aren’t there the webzine equivalents of the paper zines that excited us so much and made us want to start this damn Organ thing in the first place? It was twenty-two years ago next week that we were sitting there with Pritt sticks and scissors and broken typewriters and spray paint and silk screens and demo tapes and getting ready to launch the first handmade messy issue of Organ. We were excited, inspired, enthused, the underground was alive – a whole other world and the editorial went on here if you want it...

UPCOMING SHOWS: 

October 31st: Frances May Morgan, publisher of Plan B Magazine, gets her doom on for Halloween with an hour of tracks from the cosmic abyss, including Ufomammut, Sontaran Experiment, Black Sun, and ASVA.

November 7: Leo Avanti!, in a beamed-in show from Oslo, Norway, plays a mix of classic Krautrock, the best in current electronica and undiscovered Norwegian gems.

November 14: Barry 7+Cherrystones: Barry 7 [ex Add N to (X) and head honcho of the Mute Irregular label] together with Cherrystones [who has released compilations on  David Holmes label: tracks from Hidden Charms ended up on the Oceans Twelve soundtrack] play a selection of music that you wish you had in your record collection.

November 21: Pete Woodhead [ex-Clock DVA, the man who composed the soundtrack to Shaun of the Dead] takes us on a walk through classic underground, electronics from the past and soundtracks from the future.

Who are KOSMISCHE? Well seems it was Julian Cope's idea. "Someone should start a Krautrock club" he said. So we did. After a launch party with Timothy Leary's best mate and original Cosmic Joker Brian Barritt, the Kosmische Club quickly established itself as a place to hear some of the most forward-thinking, truly independent and downright amazing music ever made. Cherished by the open-minded, loved by the chronically energetic, and only occasionally visited by old men with beards, the Kosmische club's remit slowly began to include the best danceable, experimental music, non-chin-strokey electronica, and classic underground tracks.

"Kosmische is an established and enduring fixture of London's leftfield, presenting regular shows on Resonance FM and hosting Krautrock-style groups from all over the world."  The Wire

  DEMO TIME
We're just going to tell you about the very very best once a week, no more time for the average, only the most exciting - we're very very selective, when we tell you it's good then it really is goooooooood...

DEMO OF THE WEEK
RIOTGOD – This had ears nailed around here from the moment it hit the CD player. Whole finished ready to go album of righteous hard rock. Classic blues flavoured heavy rock and oh yes! Package arrived from Red Bank, New Jersey, with a CDr and a handwritten note from someone called Sunshine (seems he found our My Space page). Threw the disc in the player without really paying that much attention to what the paperwork was telling us and whoosh... instant. Classic 70’s blues rock and driving locked on energetic groove, everything righteously righteous and right there in the zone – Zeppelin flavoured and rocking right out. Ah right, Sunshine is the singer with the powerful honey dripping-hard rock voice, whooo, he’s got ‘it’ in a Soundgarden/Robert Plant kind of way. Garrett Sweeny has the guitar duties seriously nailed down and sounding massive and the other two, Bob Pantella (drums) and Jim Baglino (bass), just happen to be moonlighting from their day jobs as the current Monster Magnet rhythm section. Twelve serious slices of nailed down road racing classic 70’s flavoured grooving pieces of hard heavy rock (laced with bits of prog). Yes indeed, based in the classic hard rock 70’s and clearly deriving inspiration from a number of sources – Zeppelin, Montrose, some of those Seventies Stoner flavours, slices of groove, a touch of Rolling Stones, Soundgarden, Grand Funk... A little more than a derivative band here though, and not just some retro thing either, Riotgod have their own edge and they’re kicking it all in to the timeless rock beyond. Fresh band, armed with a finished album and all on the launch pad, waiting for you and ready to go – www.myspace.com/riotgod

ALSO CHECK OUT
SLITVEIN – Two track demo from an industrially inclined machine driven low-end rumbling frothing black/death/goth metal duo from Dudley. Song tittles will give you more of a clue as to where their global noise attack is coming from – Bloodlust and Vortex Of Hate are two tracks that hiss and spit with guttural spite. Demonic voice and eyes that burn and hey, some pestilently-fused industrial-driven black metal moodiness from the black country should you feel like it – www.myspace.com/slitvein

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

ALBUM OF THE WEEK
AIDS WOLF – Cities Of Glass (Skingraft) – It really does split neatly in to two camps, you either think them to be an awful bloody racket or a glorious cacophony of wonderfully hard-boiled noise. They are not easy on the ear and as they put it themselves, if they can’t draw you in they’ll make you run away cursing and bitching. These Canadians make London’s Pre sound like easy listening lounge music in comparison. Complete aesthetic immersion and screaming bending telling and high-pitched screaming. Banging and clanging and non-stop howling at the moon. There is some sense in there though, clever structure and challenge, this truly is progressive, a glorious noise and yes their music is a physical need, a mental compulsion. A glorious onslaught of full on animalistic discordant screaming prog noise - threatening, disturbing, brilliant (and produced by one Weasel Walter, now you know he won’t suffer for anything less than best).  Chloe never stops yelling out front, who knows what she’s on about? Who dares to wonder? And such horrible artwork that somehow adds in some perverse kind of way - and everything de-anchored and bass-free. Remember when punk was something weird? Destroying genre straight jackets and moving you out of the comfortable, go be challenged. Brilliant again – www.myspace.com/aidswolf or www.skingraftrecords.com
 
ALBUM OF THE WEEK 2

THE PROCESS – Rosenkreutz (Violent Change) - Now before we get in to the body of this here review thing once more, let us just mention in passing, kind of parish notice manner, these Violent Change people - whoever they are, they’ve certainly been throwing out some impressive punk rock goodness in recent weeks, looks like we’ve got a good new proper bulshit-free old school hardcore label in our hands here, nice one. Right, that bit out of the way, review time. 
               What have we got here then? Raging proper thrashing hardcore violence delivered with a certain amount of depth and rewarding intelligent challenging substance. Base metal thrash and crash, seriously heavy brutal hardcore from a bunch of people who’ve done recent time in various UK hardcore outfits (Shank, Scatha, In Decades Decline, Atomgevitter, King Generator...) so, in their own words, they’ve “seen hardcore for what it is in 2008 and intend to put some wrongs right”. Intense relentless hardcore - confrontational, ready to go toe to toe with anyone... Hang on though, there’s a little more here. Actually there’s a lot more here, especially in that final nine minute epic of a track called Thee Chemical Wedding Ov The Process with those classic gates of hell or earth or some place similar opening up Celtic Frost-like - and those dark foreboding trombones going to megatherion... That’s the end of things though, before we get there they have some brutally raw and jagged attacks to lay down along with their storehouses and things located in the interiors of the earth. Intelligent hardcore and who are the Rosicrucians and... The Process have dropped a rather impressive debut album here, something that operates on a number of levels; brutal scathing thrashing hardcore metal violence that demands you scratch a little bellow the surface and explore the thought and the depth. An album that marries classic Celtic Frost and classic English hardcore punk rock and then throws in something a little extra that demands a little more. Highly recommended - www.myspace.com/theeprocess or www.myspace.com/violentchange

And if you’re considering buying the album then the band hint that you might like to get it direct from www.outofstep.co.uk rather than one of them faceless high street chains, keep the profit in house as it were...

ALSO CHECK OUT

THREATMANTICS – Upbeat Love (Double Six) - They’re a strange band, they have moments that really seem to be going nowhere much, whole songs, like Buried Alive, that demand the hitting of the off button and just as you’re reaching and doing just that they stop you with a slice of pure genius like Don’t Care or Get Outta Town. They’re a scratchy Welsh three piece, from Cardiff, via the valleys, and they play some kind of not quite galloping folk-edged left-field blues – well sometimes almost galloping, often lolloping along in a way that no other band ever could, legs all over the place, some kind of badly animated cart horse. And then they change moods again and start to swagger in a sublimely cool way. Deceptive lot, he’s the nicest guy you’ll ever meet so he says, like Jesus without the religion. All kinds of little things here, obscure tunes, things that catch the light and demand your ears, all very infectious and delightfully light and colourful. Apparently their lead guitar isn’t a guitar, more a viola and their drummer is also the keyboard player. They can stomp some left field blues when they want, they got bits of folk that really doesn’t sound like anything obviously folk, they can turn to a bit of Welsh language when they want to (and the Welsh language does make for great new wave lo-fi punk rock type otherness). Right now we’ve got a lament about James Lemain going down and telling of how he’ll never see the sun again. Upbeat Love is eight short sharp scuzzy bites of left field goodness – well six and half really, still not sure about that one that has us reaching for the off button back there. Strange skuzzy loose lo-fi tightness and superfurry zygotic goodness and skiffle and left-field whimsical alt.rock finery and diolch yn fawr yawn, sych neu felys. Unrhyw beth arall? Lots more we suspect, lots to explore here and I do rather get the idea that it won’t belong before we like Buried Alive as well.  www.myspace.com/threatmantics

DARK CAPTAIN LIGHT CAPTAIN – Miracle Kicker (Loaf) – Restrained beauty and embroidered folksiness, delicate string picking and quiet vocal harmonies that just constantly glow. It really is difficult to find fault in Dark Captain Light Captain’s optimistic sound – so why try? This really is a simple enjoyable relaxing album – featherlite beats, refined drones, tunes that gently shimmer. Perfectly produced (by Robin Proper-Sheppard – The God Machine and such), spine-tingling restraint and less is more and 21st century electronic/acoustic folk rock at it’s most delicately imaginative. An unassuming album, a magical album, a treat – www.darkcaptain.com

EARTHLESS – Live At Roadburn (Teepee) – In which the heavy psychedelic trio launch in to a two CD eighty minute plus monster stoner jam. Heavy psychedelic instrumental stoner rock from Mike Rubalcaba (Rocket From The Crypt, Hot Snakes, Blackheart Procession) on drums, Isaiah Mitchell (Nebula, Drunk Horse) on guitar, Mike Eginton (Electric Nazarene) and if this is your thing then they do it damn well. Tight, focussed (despite the length) and doing just what it says on the tin. Recorded live at the much respected Roadburn festival, in Holland, earlier this year - www.teepeerecords.com
x

VARIOUS: UNFOLD PRESENTS: TRU THOUGHTS HIP HOP (Unfold) – Compilations can be real hit and miss affairs, there’s a fine art to building a good compilation, making sure it flows, that it has balance, avoiding the fillers. When thing are done right they can be classics – Some of those early Stiff compilations, that Some Bizarre compilation, the second Metal For Muthas album, some of those Street Sounds things, early Speed Kills thrash collections, those Crass reacords treasures.... This is a damn fine compilation to add to that list. A frontline eclectic hop hop mix from the UK, USA, France... Slices of sublime funk driven hip hop, laid back breaks, B Boy drums, future groove and mellow loops, jazz bites, ear catching lyrics. Don’t really matter who these people are, what matters is that the whole thing flows so damn well as one fine thing. Sure there’s a lyric or two that doesn’t stand up to too much close attention, no one takes that much notice of most hip hop lyrics do they? This is a mighty fine album, 16 tracks, the vibe of those classic 80’s hip-hop compilations that introduced so much. Actually the lyrics are, on the whole, pretty good as well, all the shout outs to the sparrows and the pine martins and they never told fibs so they never had to own up. Sixteen tracks, sixteen flowing tracks that fit together and all flowing so well - London voices, American voices, French language, all the zone and getting away for better days. Okay so maybe we could do without the chipmonks packing Smith and Wessons bit at the end, then again it is (almost at) the end and it will make you smile and then you’d swear there were no lizards involved, no space lizards, no nothing. Well it does matter who these people are really and they’re all there to be followed up, people like DIRTY DIGGERS, ME & YOU, TM JUKE, THE BAMBOOS, QUANTIC, UP HYGH...  What you have here in a very fine hip hop album, a broad spectrum, a diverse treat and compilation that really works and comes highly recommended. www.tru-thoughts.co.uk
x
CROWPATH – One With Filth (Candlelight) - More storming blasting raging growling slashing extreme grindcore metal. Not too obvious this time, sounds like a band trying to fight out of their corner with their relentless onslaught of noise and their choppy angles. The tasty Swedish band’s third full length and one of the better extreme metal albums of recent times. Impressive and relentless  - www.myspace.com/crowpath

THE COMPUTERS – You Can’t Hide From The Computers (Fierce Panda) - Now then, The Computers, if you’ve not come across them before then you might be expecting some kind of geeky Kraftwerk Casio powered pretty boy 80’s electronic revivalists with silly fringes. Well you go and orchestrally manoeuvre yourself in to that nice warm leatherette over there and let these Computers soothe you with their opening shot that goes by the name of Teenage Tourettes Camp. Scuzzy yelping screaming hardcore high tension punk rock ‘n roll is what we have here! Nothing like you’d expect a band called The Computers to sound like, The Rip Crunchers maybe?  The Screaming Yelping In Your Face Bastards? Seven track mini album from the Exeter crew, think Gallows stamping on Black Flag’s toes with snotty punk rock ‘n roll attitude. Actually they are pretty boys in their red and black suits and their Rocket From The Crypt/Hives undertones, another band in Hives suites.  Hectic pretty boy Gallows yelping energy - There’s a little more that just the hectic energy though, there’s a little bit of depth here, some musical substance amidst the inviting bluster, the attitude and the edge. A seven track mini album that goes some way to back up all the word of mouth buzz and mainstream media talk that’s surrounding them right now - www.myspace.com/thecomputersfromexeter or www.fiercepanda.co.uk

MIA VIGAR – True Adventures Happen Inside Your Head (Hungry Audio) – An album under her own name following on from True Adventures and Luma Lane releases. The Finno-English Luton born singer certainly has a rather distinctively whimsical style. Some of it is well away with the fairies in a Scandinavian forest just left of Bjork, some of it really is just too twee and poppy and then there’s these wonderfully demanding bits of discordance that really are a must. Strange, sometimes enchanting songs with a pure heart of pop. Bits of Laurie Anderson and Magnetic Fields and dreamy melody and childlike voices and toyboxes and love letters and.... – www.myspace.com/trueadventures

BRIMSTONE HOWL – We Came In Peace (Alive) – Mid-West American Sonics flavoured psych-head rock and roll from three bends down the river. Some cranked garage blues and Cramps style below the waist swamp rock. Dirty, gritty and sounding just right – www.alivenergy.com. Out on November 10th in the UK via www.cargorecords.co.uk

SATYRICON – The Age Of Nero (Roadrunner) – Anther black crow invested album of groove infused industrial flavoured black metal from the Norwegian duo. An album that once again pushes at the tradition parameters of the genre in a rather brooding soothing relentlessly dark way without really ever ripping up any significant trees – www.satyricon.no

THE ESTRANGED – Static Thoughts (Dirtnap) – A three piece from Portland Oregon who’s members have their feet in the hardcore crust scene and bands like Remains The Day, Hellshock, Warcry and such. This is a scratchy garage rock thing, the dark post punk of Wipers or Mission Of Burma, maybe a touch of early Joy Division. Find it in the UK via www.cargorecords.co.uk or go find out more via www.dirtnaprecs.com

MERCURY REV – Snowflake Midnight (V2) – Does this sound a little too perfect? A little clinical and in need of just a little bit of dirt under their nails? Just a hint of a wrong note? Unmistakably Mercury Rev, all their blissful sunbeams and alt.rock dreamstates - not so much a reinvention, more a subtle shift once more and I guess they’re where they should be with all their melting snowflakes. All kinds of orchestral odysseys and digital keyboard interplay, as fine as it is, oh for a little bit of dust in there, just one wrong note – www.mercuryrev.com

AS EDEN BURNS – The Great Celestial Delusion (Candlelight) - We had no idea who this was while writing this review, the information was all on the disc, it came without a cover, we didn’t have a clue until we took it out of the CD player. There’s a thousand suspects as they grown and thrash and speed-widdle away with their relentless death flavoured neo-classical speed metal onslaught of noise. They’ve been frothing away at the same breakneck speed for four or five tracks now, no real hint of variety or no suggestion that they’re going to change direction, speed or anything else in the near future. They do it well enough, pretty good as standard issue extreme classical-tainted growling cookie monster speed metal goes though. Still no guess as to who it is though? No note of identity... Cannibal Corspe? Death Angel? Harlots? No, no idea – let’s hit the eject button and see what it says on the disc – ah, As Eden Burns, they’re from Texas so it seems. Well they do it as well as anyone else without really adding anything new, just another decent enough relentlessly thrashing away same-as-the-others death metal band – www.myspace.com/asedenburns
x x

SUPERSUCKERS – Get It Together (Abstract) – The one time glorious shitkicking country punk Southern Ramones in cowboy hats are these days rather laid back and sitting in their rocking chairs out front. Once in a while they get out of those chairs and hint at some of their former hellraising rocked-out past, most of this is polite easy going good for yer American radio friendly country rock though, harmless and enjoyable enough. I kind of miss the old Supersuckers, guess this is growing old in a dignified way and they’d look a little silly still acting like the punks they once were. Good American alt.country rock then - www.supersuckers.com

CARNAL DECAY – Chopping Off The Head (Fastbeast Entertainment) - Well the ‘singer’ sounds like he’s having his face sucked off by Napalm Death’s cleaner with her demonic red hoover. Singer man’s insides are on the outside and meanwhile his band sound like a bunch of pissed off bass-heavy bees in one of those gore-blenders you can get from Argos – other than that we quite enjoyed their relentless hell-noise and cookie monster frothing and dribbling and growling. Can’t read the band logo on the front of course, let me go find the press release and see who the hell this is while we jump from track three to track seven and see if there’s any radical change of direction. Bloody hell, acoustic indie pop and pretty synths and songs about flowers that sound like Suede doing Franz Ferdinand – no not really, he’s still having his face sucked off and hoover bits inserted in to every orifice and there they are, all still intent on extreme metalling the hell out of everyone. I think we’re done with this now, thanks so so much for sending it in, I do hope you’re having a nice day with your snow, your triangular chocolate and cheese with holes in and your death metal cuckoo clocks. Apparently this is the Swiss extreme death metal band’s second album, their mothers are all very proud of them and they would like us to say that Chopping Off The Head is a “powerful masterpiece with grinding blasts and crushing riffs” – which it kind of is in preposterous kind on way - www.fastbeast.ch

ALBUM REVIEW ARCHIVES

LIVE
TO THE BONESSOS, THE ROADS, TO THE BONES, WILD YOUTH - The Venue, Derby, October 24th 

- Less a review, more a first time/first hand observation. Sean O's written many a gig review of TO THE BONES in the past, but here's my particular rub...

        Peculiar haunt this. Situated down a dark alley and sandwiched between The Emperor Chinese Restaurant and the RSPCA dog shelter. I was going to make the obvious ghoulish connection here but I don't want to upset any animal lovers who might be reading. Plenty of extremely young folk wandering around with patented Donny Tourette hairdo's, and judging by the waft of hairspray that greets me as I enter the building those young, gobby, shouty tykes from WILD YOUTH are in the house. Obviously so ~ 'cos as I head toward the golden optics there are three 'hairdo's' standing at the bar, all as thin as a heron's leg and all giving it the Johnny Thunders pout as I approach... oh dear. You must be Wild Youth then? I think to myself, the same lot who in their publicity blurb say they 'play music for kids that wanna scream and go crazy'. Hmmm funny, instead of that they all just remind me of those silly little hairy gonks you used to hang from your rear view mirror.
             I ain't here to see Wild Youth though, I'm here to check out a healthy dollop of Bolton grime-scuzz as delivered by the oft talked about, mostly raved about To The Bones. So we'll skip the fairly interesting for two minutes, rather ordinary SOS and the tight 'almost but not quite' graft of The Roads and dive head first into this bone pit I've come to witness. Yep, even after all the hype, all the warnings, all the To The Bones flag waving by the likes of Organ over the months this is Rip Cruncher's first experience of the band. I'm a Bones virgin no less. But you get a crafty sense that even throughout the speedy warm up/sound check these noise merchants are more than comfy in their rock n roll skin.
         Crash! Bang! Wallop!, no messin' and straight off they grab the tiger by its balls, and whether or not it's out of instinct or fear I notice a few of these wide eyed little glam poppets in the audience take a couple of steps back. Maybe they figure it's safer, because with the amount of hairspray some of these kids are wearing half of 'em might go up like a f***** roman candle with the amount of sparks flying off THIS band. Yep, this is what I came to see, screw the rest ~ Red's standing up there with gunslinging frontman cool as promised, those orange shades he's wearing making him look like a cross between Lemmy and an alien fruit fly. Crunchadelic gutteral mantra's eminate from the stage as the rest of this tight, brutal, whirlwind of an act pulverize the opposition with cool authority. Punk/Metal architects? Probably, and they're only halfway through their all too short set. We're into the instantly recognisable 'Rex' now, and my head's getting a good ol' fashioned battering from that volcanic bass/drum section just as some poor little sod runs past me towards the exit spilling his shandy down his brand new Towers Of London Tee-shirt in the process... haarrrrrghh!!!! love it! ~ The Bones are sorting out the scuzz from the chaff... Sccccccuzzzzzzz Rummmmmmble Grrrrrrrowwwwl Thudddd, Thummmmmp, Batttter!!!!! More Growwwwwwwwl etc - there's all sorts in this beautiful cauldron of a soup... Motorhead, Sonic Youth, Liars, Fugazi.. but T.T.B forge relentlessly on through the carnage, left upper cut, jab, right hook, smack to the gob, red stuff everywhere and as quick as these Lancashire renegades had hit the stage barely half an hour ago it's all over and those cursed house lights are up already. Bo**ocks ~ just as the blood was pumping too.
          Ahhh well, all good things come to an end n'all that. Which is one of all manner of subjects I yarn about with the incredibly approachable Red and his band after their set. Unfathomable subjects like why they're on the same bill as these pre-pubescent Wild Youth glove puppets on stage right now? His & the bands love of early Lemmy & Motorbonce and the pregnant cash cow that IS Man Utd. Loads 'o stuff, the kind of guys you'd enjoy sinking a few jars with even if they weren't in one of Britain's finest young bands.
            "Gonna show you what it's all about, I'm gonna shoot ya down tonight " ~ I forget which 'head song that's from, but it kind of sums up this evening's 'bones experience. Organ was right (as usual), the hype-mongers were right, my instincts were right. Bullet belts, the smell of raw leather and Special Brew might be a rarity at gigs nowadays...but the kick-ass f****n' attitude is alive, prowling and growling within these Bolton bandits... and their debut album 'Duke Type A' does nothing but kick all the posers and false pretenders into touch. A monster of a band full stop ~ prepare to have your bones rattled wherever you are.

LOYAL TROOPER – One Day All This Will Work Out (self release) – Loyal Trooper is Andy Walker and this is his self-released six track EP (and I’m trying to string together late night sentences about the sentences he strings together). A quick fix short-cut explanation would be something along the lines of saying he’s a bit like Frank Turner. That would be a quick lazy convenient short cut though, nothing more, and there are rather a lot fledgling Frank Turners around at the moment, none of them with the natural instinctive magic that Frank has. It would be easy to just dismiss Loyal Trooper as yet another if he doesn’t catch you in the right frame of mind and you’re not in the mood to really take it (or him) in properly – yes I’m guilty, dismissed this twice already and only now am I realising how good these songs and sentiments actually are. He’s like Frank Turner in the same way Metallica are like Slayer – nothing like each other when it really comes down to it. These are songs full of personal emotion, diary pages and life and counting on your fingers just who give an f and stuck in mid twenties no man’s land. Frustrations, emotions, searches - and all sung with such simple emotion over an expressive acoustic guitar that all flows over the cleaver details so easily. Beds of expressive background keyboards, friends helping out with additional vocals and production that’s all just so perfectly simply right. Simple acoustic sounds and songs and sentiments brought to life and all with a sense of camaraderie somewhere in the disconnection and all the identical coffee-chain shops where the friends he cares for dearly don’t go anymore. A beacon on individuality in the middle of the identikit sound the same bands who may as well be musical equivalent of the Starbucks experience – that and to hell and back on the Old Street social scene or looking for old friends in Sheffield or growing up and going to gigs and sleeping rough afterwards. Oh look, six really good songs, six really strong recordings, they’ve been playing on repeat for hours now, I’d happily hit repeat again if that pile over there wasn’t demand attention. Everything has clearly been put in to this and yes I know you could argue that that’s the case with every piece of music ever, but it really has here, six fine songs, give them songs a chance or two, they deserve it – www.loyaltrooper.co.uk or www.myspace.com/loyaltrooper

SINGLE OF THE WEEK 2
ALISON O’DONNELL with HEAD SOUTH BY WEAVING – Day Is Done / Frozen Warnings (Fruits De Mer) - You really can’t go wrong with a Nick Drake song can you? Well yes actually, these things are very precious, the bird has flown and you have to have something very very special to really live up to the magic of the original. Same with Nico, two beautifully tragic people, two exquisite music makers, two precious songs that require careful handling, loving care and attention to detail... Second part of this Fruits De Mer series of limited edition coloured vinyl seven inch singles where the label invites a singer, band or such to record two classic covers. Alison O’donnell has a such a rich dark full voice, she sings her choices of Nick Drake’s Day Is Done and Nico’s dark moody Frozen Warnings in such a beautifully transient way. So full of space and warmth, I must confess I was a little worried about listening to the Nick Drake cover - nothing to worry about here, these versions are wonderful. Really must go and explore what esle she has, these versions are magical - www.brackenrecords.com / www.alisonodonnell.com / www.myspace.com/alisonodonnell

ALSO CHECK OUT

PSAPP – The Monster Song (Domino) – Single off the fine new album and more of their uplifting feel-good simple home made lo-fi alt. pop cleverness. Cleverly crafted, perfectly recorded, alive with little details and open gates and cats stretched out in the Autumn sun. Psapp are just nice and sometimes nice is all that’s needed - even when they say it might be happening again and there’s pain to hide it still feels nice. Just simple cleaver crafted glowing experimental sunny pop pleasures, Psapp are just right – www.psapp.net

DANKO JONES – Code Of The Road (Bad Taste) – New single off of next January’s forthcoming Never Too Loud album and more of their now familiar no messing pop-edged hard rock. We’re talking high energy melodic rock and a once more some classic hard and heavy (but not too hard or too heavy) rock. This time around the single sounds like a righteous slice 70’s Thin Lizzy power-blues garage, which is, I guess, kind of now very typical of Danko Jones. No messing muscled up road-wise Thin Lizzy for Henry Rollins fans, proper rock as it were, and sounding better than ever. Catch the Canadians on tour with Motorhead throughout the UK this November – www.myspace.com/dankojones

JOHNNY COLA & THE A-GRADES – We’re All Going To Die/Herorics (BBA Heartland) – Some kind of throwback Bowie, Suede, Pulp slightly heroric tiny-epic 90’s sounding Brit pop thing. He’s holding out for a hero until the morning light apparently.. Johnny’s harming no one here... Suede never meant much to me, this doesn’t do much for me either. Hey, there’s a link, he’s put out a decently produced DIY low budget single, he has ambition and you might fancy a slice of someone who wants to be Brett Suede. Live and let live, here you go should you want it, I really don’t want to be holding out for anything here – www.myspace.com/jonnycolaandtheagrades

'RE-ISSUE/best of OF THE WEEK
KUNG FU SUPER SOUNDS – Unreleased Shaw Brothers Soundtracks (De Wolfe Music Library) – Apparently Kung Fu movie fans should be very excited about this release. The Shaw Brothers it seems are the “absolute year zero” when it comes to Kung Fu flicks, an acknowledged “inspiration for Tarantino’s Kill Bill”, the “holy grail”. Don’t be asking me about Kung Fu b-movies of the 70’s, I guess if you liked them and expecially the music that came with them then here you go. Some of  “the most innovative scores” from these “cult martial art movies” collected together on one disc  Forty three tracks that range between the bizarre, the classical, the cheesy and yes, the delightfully clichéd sounds that you’d maybe anticipate. Re-mastered, compiled with attention to detail, healthy sleeve notes and visuals, here you go, line up, one at a time now, no attacking this two at once  – www.dewolfe.co.uk

THE END BIT...
...And Finally.. 

Austria will next week play host to the first international academic conference on heavy metal. The brainchild of Dr Niall Scott from the University of Central Lancashire, the conference will bring together scholars from Britain, Turkey, Canada and Indonesia to present research papers on metal aesthetics, sub-cultures and politics.

Titles to be presented include, 'Suicide, Booze And Loud Guitars: The Ethical Problem Of Heavy Metal', Controlled Anger And The Expression Of Intensity And Authenticity In Post-Modern Heavy Metal' and 'Heavy Metal In A Muslim Context: The Rise Of The Turkish Metal Underground'.

Scott says: "It is about time, that with a growing critical interest in the music and culture of heavy metal, a conference be held to explore, critique and bang heads on what this long standing movement is about, where it is going and what it has to offer, politically socially and philosophically. Characterised by extremes, it is a music movement that has a range of lifestyles attached to it, comprising of quite disparate and radically different views amongst both fans and its progenitors".

Heavy Fundamentalisms: Music, Metal & Politics takes place from 3-5 Nov at the Hotel Stieglbrau in Salzburg. (source CMU)
