ORGAN #294> FEB 12th '09 - new issue here every Thursday afternoon
“"Scroll down, read this week's issue, couldn't be easier could it?
No rest for the wicked with this non stop operation, take a moment for a tune before we go on and and on and a non stop operation. 

So we're late again, we just got back from the opening of something or other that had been swallowing up all out time and creative energy, that and clogging up all the Organart computer time and fried minds and no sleep 'till Southbank and normal service might just return next week unless we morph in to giant lilies. Is there such a thing as normal service around here? I really hope not?  "Very exciting visually" said the Radio Four Arts show, and you think we're just here barking at the mainstream and feasting on demos all day don't you? 

And somewhere in the middle of this week's chaos we added a gig guide, just London right now but we'll see, London is our hometurf after all. Emma asked us where we got all our gig info from and could we point her to a decent trustworthy gig guide that tells us where  the alternative treasure could be found - we couldn't, so we made her one. Does it work? What do you want from a gig guide? 

And are gig prices getting out of hand? thirty quid for Motorthead, same for Devo and Hawklords, are they biting the loyal hand that feeds a little too much now, these old bands who seem to think we're their personal pension plan? Are you favourite old bands starting to leave a little bit of a bitter taste?

Jump in then, no beekeeping here, and lillies are such well behaved things... These are once again, the things that have been in our ears and on our minds this week. Please do explore and if it sounds or looks interesting then just hit the link and go make your own minds up, make contact, go switch the other, go explore, go get involved we're just here to point the way - don't let this thing blow over, we've done with undercover - like we say every week, our reviews and thoughts are mere signposts designed to guide you to the things you might like to feast on yourselves... don’t you just love the instant way this web thing works when things fall right and the doors flip open and the touch of a key....

Is this why you bookmarked us...?

DEATH CAB LAUNCH ANTI-AUTOTUNE CAMPAIGN - Death Cab For Cutie arrived at the Grammys on Sunday sporting blue ribbons, which they revealed were worn to highlight their new campaign against "Auto-tune abuse in music".  Frontman Ben Gibbard told reporters: "Autotuning is a digital manipulation, a correction of a singer's voice that is affecting literally thousands of singers today and thousands of records that are coming out. So we just want to raise awareness while we're here and try to bring back the blue note... The note that's not so perfectly in pitch and just gives the recording some soul and some kind of real character. It's how people really sing".x

NEW ALBUMS WE’RE LISTENING TO THIS WEEK
ALBUM OF THE WEEK

WE ROCK LIKE GIRLS DON’T – How Did It Get To This (Distort) – Are the Scottish girls only just getting their debut album out? Weren’t they playing on Organ bills and getting raved about around these parts sometime back there in the last century? Wonder what took ‘em so long? Most of those songs that have come out as DIY singles and such are on here along with their abrasive scratchy bold brash grunge ‘n punky metal. Full of no messing who the hell are you attitude, raw riffs and visceral goodness. I’m the queen of heavy metal sings Ros as they rock out like a harder rawer meaner Babes In Toyland, hints of White Stripes, PJ Harvey...  they rock like the best girls do, they’ve made the raw in your face punky grungy heavy metal album they’ve always threatened, best things come to those who wait .... www.myspace.com/werocklikegirlsdont

SHIRLEY LEE – Shirley Lee (Missing Page) Self-titled debut solo album from Mr. Shirley Lee, singer and main songwriter with London indie band Spearmint. You can tell this is yer man from Spearmint straight away, the fingerprint is here, that touch of soul, that bit of class, Shirley knows how to write simple infectious songs that glide in and feel just right. Songs that make you smile, songs of life, the simple things – sunshine, phone calls. The phone call is great actually, we’ll let you discover that, you’ll smile – the simple joy of making and sharing songs, we do listen.  Most people don’t listen do they? You really should listen to these songs. Production is just right, that touch of Northern Soul (Sweeping The Nation again), simple quiet pleasant English indie songs - chosen moments, personal things shared, that touch of glamour found in things that could so easily go unnoticed. Understated simple beauty, quite songs, and everything just right. Classic gentle indie soul and if you don’t take the time to really listen you could easily miss out on something rather special – www.myspace.com/shirleyleeuk
 

THE MILK AND HONEY BAND – Dog Eared Moonlight (APE) – They’re a strange band to get a handle on, they have these wonderful moments, perfect ways to waste your time, they have their Incredible Visions and you think yes, I want more of this .Maryfaith Autumn really does hint at their Levitation/Ring/Zag And The Beads heritage, Maryfaith is pond grace good and cast adrift floating by, Maryfaith will catch you in that charm, catch you in the tall grass and yellow ragwort and every time she floats by we fall a little deeper under her charm - running up and down hills, chasing swallows and all hearts climbing higher than the ocean and... and then... and then they go and distil the magic with some rather polite middle of the road indie rock that could be one of Keane’s less epic radio friendly moments, that or some ear-friendly steal peddle guitar piloted Americana and you’re left wondering who the real Milk And Honey Band actually are. There seems to be three or for bands on here, this is why the Milk And Honey Band have never quite registered around here, the different versions are all legitimate and in their own ways equally as good, they just need some little something that pulls it all together. Deadly to horses and your are required legally to remove yellow ragwort if you have any on your land, nothing deadly about the Milk And Honey Band, this is a delightful pleasant relaxing mellow album, two or three of the songs are amongst the best you’ll hear this year and the rest of it is growing on us in the same way a new coat or a slighty uncomfortable pair of boots do, starting to feel right now, starting to fit properly... www.myspace.com/themilkandhoneyband
x
THE ANTIKAROSHI – Crushed Neocons (Exile On Mainstream) – Debut album from a new German three piece (who apparently feature one time members of Brood). A post rock thing, what ever that is? Healthy hints of the more progressive end of D.C hardcore; Fugazi, Bluetip, Rites Of Spring and such, taking it to a place of their own making though, this is organically different. Disharmonic melody, other rock, post rock/hardcore, nothing too difficult or hardboiled, The Antikaroshi have an easy flow. Bits of jazz in there, a touch of electronica to go with the flow – amalgamations, cross pollination, forward motion and so many dogs around, they hear them bark bark bark... Impressive convention pushing musical disharmony that comes with enough harmony to keep your heart rate kind of normal enough. Good enough to bark about. www.myspace.com/theantikaroshi

PHOSPHORESCENT – To Willie (Dead Oceans) – Delicate whispered gentle alt.country/Americana and soft strum relaxed ambition, beautifully layered, sparse, open, quietly restrained and mostly beautifully covered Willie Nelson songs from Phosphorescent. If you feel the need for a sip or two of quiet considered firefly-watching alt.country then this is rather recommended. www.deadoceans.com
x

REVOLTING COCKS – Sex-O Olympic-O (13th Planet) – The much delayed slamslab of newness from team Rev Co final lands on Feb 27th, seems like we’ve been sitting on this one for months. Unmistakably RevCo and all their trademark banging industrial-dance-metal hedonism. Uncle Al Jourgensen and his Ministry crew and their bastard offspring. Apparently it was to be their swansong, but then they had a listen to it and put the swansong on hold - “F**k, we’re not going to let this be our last album!” declared Al upon hearing the first mixes – and he’s right! Too good to pull the plug on their global noise attack. RevCo still have that 90’s industrial dance magic in here with the whiplash aggression and their wizard of sextown beats – they’re still doing it as well as ever. Thing that RevCo have over most of the others is that in all the industrial bite and the darkness of it all, they have the bodies of songs, songs to catch things from. Viral goodness for all, and what else could you possible catch from a HookerBot3000 other than infectious dance metal? Ah, I see, RevCo aren’t ending, Al is taking a back seat, franchising them out, turning it all over to a younger generation of RevCo conspirators – well he did start all this in 1983, the guy deserves a comfy chair. Long live RevCo, they’re still doing it better than most, this is good, they’re always good, RevCo on good forward looking form – www.revoltingcox.com

NICKEL EYE – The Time Of The Assassins (Ryko) – Bass player Nickolai Fraiture out of the Strokes with loads of things that would like they have been rejected by English 80’s new wave post punk Joy Division bands back there. Kind of sounds like a bass player’s side project with no one quite having the nerve to say hang on Nik, this isn’t very good. Last track of eleven “That’s No Way To Say Goodbye” runs through the windmills of your mind if you can stick around that long, last track is good... rest is the emperor’s clothing  - www.myspace.com/officialnickeleye

THE LOVED ONES – Distractions (Fat Wreck) – That fine line, or maybe that big fence we’re sitting on, somewhere between blue collar guitar driven Americana and melodic tuneful North American radio friendly punk rock, somewhere between Bruce Springsteen and Joe Strummer (both of whom they cover alongside Billy Bragg). A sincere committed hardworking gritty sound. Six recordings on a mini album that’s hot of the heels of lots of touring and last year’s acclaimed Build And Burn album. The songs of the closing car making plants and houses taken away and what you going to do about it all? Can you really take a man’s life away? Timely... Great version of Coma Girl with a little Loved Ones twist to it, I think it may just be time ot come down off the fence, this is good - www.fatwreck.com

THE PROPHECY – Into The Light (Code666) – Extremely moody dark metal, brooding melodic doom ‘n goth flavoured slow moving tuneful hardrock that gives away now and again to growling death before picking up on the epic melodies and the graceful guitar passages again - passage that flow in an easy on the ear lush gothic neo prog manner before the death and thrash kicks once more. The prophecy are a dogs dinner of a metal band, but hey, if you’re in the mood to be growled and gothed at and then stroked and soothed when they take a break from the cookie monstering and you don’t mind them taking your soul down under with them (well that’s what he just sung) and you don’t mind their squeaky technical metal guitars (I hate squeaky technical metal guitars) and you can deal with all their genre jumping lane switching then this isn’t bad, they do their thing rather well actually, they do go on and on though, longer than this damn sentence... if they put it all together with a little more imagination then it could be rather good, they do keep jumping from generic metal cliche to another though  - www.myspace.com/theprophecyeng or www.code666.net

SPIDER AND THE FLIES – Something Clockwork This Way Comes (Mute Irregulars) – A seen track mini album that includes their long deleted much hunted single Metallurge. A kind of updated flight though the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and the mind of Delia Derbyshire via a touch of left field Detroit techno. Recorded on analog material, bleeps, bells, buzzbangs, squelchbites and swamped in timelord fuzz and fuzz and this is probably the antidote to that dreadful music that the BBC insist on swamping all over those recent born again Doctor Who flights. – www.muteirregulars.com
x

WOODPIGEON – Treasury Library Canada (End Of The Road) – Canada’s Woodpigeon with their second album is six months. Another set of songs from Songbook sessions and some rather refined and finely detailed easy going Americana. It may just be that the Spring sun is out and the day is beautifully inviting, and those layers are enhanced, no, this would surely sound as good in the rain wouldn’t it? Yes it does, Treasury Library Canada sounds as pleasing on this cold dull Winter afternoon as it did on that sunny morning. Crafted songs, rich acoustic colour, rewardingly mellow folk flavoured Americana that shares the good space that people like Sufjan Stevens invite you to enjoy – www.myspace.com/woodpigeon

   THINGS TO GO CHECK OUT?
SONIC YOUTH have posted more information about their 16th album, ‘The Eternal’. The album will be released on double vinyl, compact disc, and digital album by Matador Records on June 9. Produced by John Agnello and the band, ‘The Eternal’ not only marks Sonic Youth’s return to the independent label sphere (titles on their own SYR label excepted) after a long association with Geffen, but more importantly, ranks as one of their more inspired efforts in a 28 year career.
                Recorded through November and December of last year at the band’s Echo Canyon West studio in Hoboken, NJ, ‘The Eternal’ features many firsts for a Sonic Youth album, including a number of shared vocals between Kim, Thurston, and Lee, and the studio debut of former Pavement/Dustdevils bassist Mark Ibold, a member of Sonic Youth’s touring band for the past few years.
               The band’s current extracurricular activities are as always, quite varied. The Kunsthalle in Dusseldorf, Germany is now hosting the touring museum exhibition SONIC YOUTH ETC.: SENSATIONAL FIX, which focuses on the band’s multidisciplinary work since the band’s formation in 1981, including their collaborations with visual artists, filmmakers, designers and musicians. Kim Gordon launches a clothing line, Mirror/Dash, at Urban Outfitters on February 16, and is showing at The Armory Show in NYC March 5-8. Lee Ranaldo, with co-conspirator Leah Singer, just opened installations at the Konsthall in Stockholm and the CNEAI in Paris, and he has a piece in the travelling exhibition “Bad Moon Rising 3”, currently at Boots Contemporary Art Space in St. Louis. A Beck/Sonic Youth split 7” is being released by Matador on April 18 for Record Store Day. And the band recently collaborated with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company (along with former Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones and mixed-media sound composer Takehisa Kosugi) on a work celebrating, and being performed for, Cunningham’s 90th birthday on April 16 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
               Upcoming SY shows include April gigs in Austria and Germany (including the closing of SENSATIONAL FIX in Dusseldorf) and May 16 at the No Fun Festival in Brooklyn. The will be touring throughout the summer in support of ‘The Eternal’.
          Of ‘The Eternal’, Matador’s Gerard Cosloy says, “We’ve not had a record in our recent history that’s been the subject of nearly as much speculation and anticipation. Suffice to say we’re pretty amazed at the way the band delivered something this neoteric while still sounding like, well, themselves. Less of a reinvention and perhaps more to do with a particularly awesome dozen songs.”
            Matador will shortly announce a Buy Early Get Now scheme for the album with some very interesting bonus material. Sonic Youth at the moment are: Steve Shelley, Lee Ranaldo, Kim Gordon, Thurston Moore, Mark Ibold. 
           The album track listing reads like this: 1. Sacred Trickster, 2. Anti-Orgasm, 3. Leaky Lifeboat (for Gregory Corso), 4. Antenna, 5. What We Know, 6. Calming The Snake, 7. Poison Arrow, 8. Malibu Gas Station, 9. Thunderclap For Bobby Pyn, 10. No Way, 11. Walkin Blue, 12. Massage The History. Read Sonic Youth's blog via their My Space page - www.myspace.com/sonicyouth

  SINGLES
SINGLE OF THE WEEK
EMMY THE GREAT – First Love (Close Harbour) – Emmy The Great with a great great single off her great new album (that we’ll now have to go back to and explore lots more on the strength of this, I mean we said it was good last week but...). Hell of a song actually, Emmy The Great is great great great and she’s single-handedly saved Hallelujah from whoever those people where who almost destroyed it. This is one of the best songs for ages, a song to carry you to the top of the stairs and way beyond - and you won’t forget it, it really is first love good... Emmy The Great we love you for this song. All euphoric simplicity (very clever simplicity mind you, song writing this good is never simple) and just  a really uplifting girl called Emma singing a gloriously real and personal song about, oh it doesn’t matter what I think she’s singing about, go and discover the beauty for yourself, makes everything around here worthwhile and bud-fresh hopeful and springtime good and Hallelujahs even better than Rufus and thank you Emmy The Great – English folky acoustic euphoria, sometime it really is that simple – www.myspace.com/emmythegreat

DAVID GIBB – The English Retreat (Fuse) – Modern English folk-pop with a witty wordy charm and a bit of an uplifting infectious Frank Turner feel.

CD Single comes in handmade covers, limited edition, hand number and most importantly three fine songs – www.myspace.com/davidgibb

THREATMANTICS – Little Bird (Double Six) – Single from the slightly quirky Cardiff trio’s recent well received album, rock and roll that’s rather different, almost twee in a positive kind of way, falling out of a tree near those trees bands like Gorkys or Super Furies fell out of - www.myspace.com/threatmantics

'RE-ISSUE/best of OF THE WEEK
DEEP PURPLE – Stormbringer 35th Anniversary edition (EMI) - Thirty fifth anniversary re-issue of the 1974 album from Deep Purple. Seen as some as the beginning of the end by some, seen by others as the classic Deep Purple album. Arguments rage long and hard about the best Purple line up, the classic Ian Gillan fronted outfit or the Glen Hughes/David Coverdale version, some of us still can’t decide. Same with this album, loved and hated in equal measure by the fans, and the band so legend has it – apparently Blackmore was not a fan of the direction Stormbringer was taking Deep Purple in, he quit not long after the release. Drenched in the 70’s soul and hammond/bass funk that the previous album Burn started to hint at. There’s a lot of early Whitesnake to be found in here with the hard edged soul, Whitesnake never had the voice and vision of Glen Hughes alongside the blues of David Coverdale though (they did have Stormbringer producer Martin Birch in the seat for most of their ealry recordings though, the ones before they sold everything to America and MTV). Yes, Stormbringer still sounds good with that 70’s blend of refined hard rock and that righteous funk ‘n soul. Yeah sure, Coverdale is waving his whitesnake a little too much, doesn’t he always with his constant need to prove something or other - “I’m gonna take you home and prove that I’m a man” - or his solutions to her gas bill problems. There’s so much soul and funk is here, almost touching on 70’s Stevie Wonder territory. Blackmore still gets to impose his hard rock edge here and there, Lady Double Dealer is as much Rainbow flavoured as it is Whitesnake driven  And you have got Soldier Of Fortune on here – that has to be worth the entry price alone, a classic slice of melting mellow arms in the air eyes closed chill down the spine 70’s hard rock.  Stormbringer was the sound of a band pulling apart, Stormbringer is also a 70’s hard rocking funk ‘n soul guilty pleasure, and yes, it still sounds good today, it is a Deep Purple classic and this provides more than enough animation for those who say the Hughes/Coverdale version was very best Purple line up. This re-issue comes with a load of bonus Glenn Hughes remix tracks and hey, up there with the very best things 70’s Purple ever did. A classic and an anniversary worthy of celebration. Released on 23rd Feb in various formats including a two LP gatefold sleeve and a DVD that features a previously unavailable US quadrophonic mix or something like that....
