The SPIRITWO single will be out on the same day . Those of you who haven't got the JON POOLE What's The Ugliest Part of Your Body Zappa covers album need to grab it now, we're in to the last box of 25 and once they're gone that is it, deleted - mailorder it here. GENE SERENE is off to Germany for another show this Friday and will be back in London on Monday for a show at THE FLY (Oxford Street) with GOBSAUSAGE and the launch of her own label DADA DIscs.

8th NOV 2006 - THE DODGEMS + LEAVE THE CAPITAL + ZAN PAN are at the Camden Barfly on Thursday, 16 November 2006, Leave The Capital are middle band on so I guess you need to be there by 9.00pm at the latest. The Barfly is still at the The Monarch, 49 Chalk  Farm Road, NW1.

6th NOV 2006 - Well now where were we? Recovering from the Eleven Hour Itch. SPIRITWO lost some letters, thanks that saves me checking every time, missed The Itch?

When Gravity Fails, SUNS OF THE TUNDRA (stars of Organ 21), Sedulus and Sondura all play at the Barfly in deepest Camden on Monday 13th November.CARDIACS are at the unfriendly London Astoria this coming Friday and LEAVE THE CAPITAL are back in town next week - which town though? Cardiff, London - go to the capital

28th OCT 2006 - Well now where were we? LEAVE THE CAPITAL, some of you are asking if you can mail order the single already, stock isn't back from the pressing plant yet, as soon as we have we'll tell you.If you want to be on the band's mailing list then head over to their My Space page where they have something for you to sign up to. I expect singles in here late next week - watch this space.

GENE SERENE17th OCT 2006 - Well now where were we? Things are kicking up, no swans around here no more, the GENE  SERENE EP is let loose with the geese, heard tracks on several radio stations yesterday, yeah I know it strange for me to still get a buzz out of radio play, I do, the day I don’t get that buzz is the day I fly away, it’s still all about the music, all the pecking can’t destroy that, it can destroy a lot of things but not that buzz. I don’t know what it is, you’ve thrown everything you have in to putting out some piece of music from some band that excites you and it just sounds extra special hearing it comes out of a radio, it still does after all this time  - anyway, we set loose the Gene Serene single, Steve Lamacq said good things on the radio about London underground electro punk and I see his Radio One website is listing I Can Do Anything as one of the five hottest tracks of the week. 

Anyway, it’s lining up like this with the singles series – October, Gene Serene, November - Leave The Capital, December – Spirriitwo and that extremely tasty version of Foundling (yes that one) and then in January well woooooooo. Right, off to make compilations albums and other things tooooo

11th OCT 2006 - LEAVE THE CAPITAL will be at Club Fandango at the Dublin Castle in Camden on Tuesday October 24th.

10th OCT 2006 - It's still such a big buzz, such a rush of excitment - the first time one of our releases gets  played on the radio I mean, it's still as big a buzz as it was the first time our first ever release got played - I just walked in to hear Leave The Capital coming out of the speakers - hang on, that's not the CD player! I've got the radio on!  Yeeeeeeeeeeees! I mean I have been playing the CD to death since we got the demo and chased them about it, but hey, the first radio play is such a big big big big buzz, things like this still cause me to dance around the room in a Bez-like state of chaos whooping like a damn fool, a single still sounds better on the radio!  Yaaaaaaaaaaaay!

"That's LEAVE THE CAPITAL" said John kennedy on XFM "and I think it's going to be big!"

4th OCT 2006 - Soren's Comment: "Spirritwo! I was lucky enough to witness her in action last month at the Cube and Star! She was fantastic, and completely adorable. I hope she comes back soon, as you don't get alot of that sort of thing hereabouts,. She sang in Arabic an Arabic pop song, which was nothing less than magnificent, when is she back in the UK???"

3rd OCT 2006 - "I'll keep on building these ships till they get me the hell out of here" - We are very pleased to tell you that our small part in the building of these mighty ships will be to release the debut single from Cardiff's rather blissful LEAVE THE CAPITAL on 13th November as part 28 of the ORG-AN-ISED SINGLES SERIES - you can catch the band this Thursday in London at the Camden Barfly (on at 8.30pm). There's a review of the demo to be found with this week's on-line ORGAN

And part 29? Watch this very spot - oh by the way, Som from MY VITRIOL (their debut was one of the very early parts of the singles series) tell's me we can expect a new single from them in January, good to see them up to things again - "We're a very different animal these days!" said Som. Right, I got to go work out who we have on ORGAN TV this week - exciting creative times, contact and switch the other.

We'll tell you about part 28 and part 29 tomorrow. Ms Serene was around here yesterday talking in an excited manner about all kinds of London electro punk dada things and her new label that she's going to be putting material out on for other like-minded do-it-yourself kind of people. She was telling us about a new track on the new DJ Download album and something about a brit art exhibition with Mr Jones and that Stoke City goal keeper turned vandal Gordon Banksy and a George Tabb benefit the London electro punks  were threatening and Gobsausage are going to play - no one crash landed and everything went onward and upward went the pecking swan 
LEAVE THE CAPITAL28th Sept 2006 - GENE SERENE is off to Germany next, things in galleries and strange clubs and such. And you do know CARDIACS are at the London Astoria in November don't you - on the 10th - I'd get a ticket, they always sell out the place. Hang on, another German date just in, GENE SERENE is now confirmed for We Are Electrfied on Fri 17th Nov at 025 in Frankfurt - the other dates are in the gig guide

28th Sept 2006 - Time to build ships out of matchsticks, whole ones, or at least help the ship that's built to float and get then the hell out of here/there - LEAVE THE CAPITAL are playing London's Camden Barfly on Thursday 5th October, on stage early and it won't be the first and it won't be the last my dear - you can find out more and taste a track here

28th Sept 2006 - We put that previously unheard unreleased CAY track here

27th Sept 2006 - Today we have our new Organ compilation heads on here at ORG Records, and don't forget we have another ORGAN TV show on tonight, see the new ZERO CIPER video for the first time. 10.30pm, on the OPEN ACCESS 2 channel via SKY 173.You also get to see videos from ROSE MELBURG, SIDEARM, OUT FROM ANIMALS, WEAPONS, ASSDROIDS, THE TELESCOPES and SUNS OF THE TUNDRA.

The ORGAN RADIO series ran for 21editions, 21 compilation albums and the first releases and first national radio play for loads of bands who you hadn't heard of at the time - Sikth, Raging Speedhorn, Lost Prophets, Dog Fashion Disco... never mind that, time to bring you a whole bag of news bands you never heard of 

cool t-shirt or what?26th Sept 2006 - Now we’re buzzing said the splashing swan causing upset in the pond (no not that pond, we got tired of waiting in that one for something to happen). We have lots of things we can’t quite tell you about yet, things are being done and can you see the splashing yet? GENE SERENE is playing Pop in Oxford Street (London) tonight, we told you about that already didn’t we? You can hear her version of Sound Of The Crowd here. We have a couple of new singles from new bands to tell you about, not quite yet though, what this space, give us a couple more days. Putting out music is exciting us again, it got a little foggy for a while, what with the soul suckers and such (and hey we’ve been very busy, we don’t do apathy around here). I know I said the history wasn’t important and we’re only about the next things but I’ve been listening to lot of out old stuff, some of it was really rather good wasn’t it. We just put one of the lost CAY demo tracks up on the ORG Records My Space just because it’s a beautiful track and I do wonder what happened to them after that last single we did after they escaped the head-messers at that clueless major label who got their hooks in to their lives. Anyway, there’s a previously unheard demo track up there on My Space for no other reason than it’s beautiful and it’s all about good music and the delight in sharing it and I suspect no one will ever get to hear these tracks and that is a shame. I don’t know, the band jut disappeared after that Ressurexit single. I don’t know, I’m really tempted to gather all these tracks for a low key album just for those who care? It was that CAY My Space page that got me thinking about it and them and arrrgghhhhh... 
24th SEPT 2006 - GENE SERENE is at the Newcastle Ladyfest today, she's also playing Pop (Oxford St, London) on Tuesday 26 Sep 2006

Just found a CAY My Space page put up by a fan, there’s some nice little bits up there. Cay were an experience and we’ve no real time for history and what’s been has been and gone but we do have a whole load of unreleased demos and such here that we’re thinking hey, why not stick them out for people who care?

Talking of My Space (Mummy what did people do before they invented My Space?), there’s some My Vitriol demos up there on their official page, there’s some really good Som solo stuff as well (and Som does U2), they’re talking about a new my Vitriol single. Right, enough of old stuff, everything must go, I got to go, watch this space for a whole bag of exciting bites of news 

Oh yes, the guy on the orange shirt is maximum Rock 'n Roll contributor, aurthor and punk rock music maker George Tabb, click on his picture and learn a little about him if you don't know already. He could use a moment of your time and energy please 

20th SEPT 2006 - I Can Do Anything in the Sound Of The Crowd, don't think about The Hours or that Black Rose, it's the Freefall and never mind no God Damn Whores or any of that, the swan flippers are flipping well flipping faster than a flipping Flipper album. 

I just got back from Wembley, what a building site of a sight still. :"What were you doing there?" Dropping off the masters to two flipping shinny new ORG releases that I'm not going to  tell you about yet. I can do anything, I need nothing from you, something about the way you deal, hands of steel, steal, steel steal stealers, browns, ravens, all the same, only the names (and the city and the uniform) have changed. 

New releases? Yeah, but never mind them, that news is for next week - this week we're talking about the new GENE SERENE single, the first new thing the kicking swan has kicked up to the calm quiet surface of what you thought was the still lake of calm serene. Can Swans peck back at heads? 

The news is we have a whole load of new ORG releases and things going on and the first is the (long awaited) Gene Serene EP. Limited edition of 1000 and here's the track listing right now

1: I Can Do Anything, 2: Sound Of The Crowd, 3: Black Rose, 4: The Hours, 5: Freefall

A new five track CD EP from Gene Serene, part 27 or the ORG-AN-ISED singles series. The whole thing is kicking off in a fog of swan feathers again. There's a whole lot of fresh new ORG activities. 

More news, mailorder details and a whole lot more along later tonight. You may have heard Gene Serene several times on your radio this week. Right, I'm off again, it's a non stop operation. 

What day is it? Wednesday? Hey we got a TV show tonight – more Anti Product and things?

17th SEPT 2006 - Sunday, we've put the mailorder page back and most of the biogs and after a 
summer of busy things elsewhere, there's a ton of exciting things going on underneath the surface here with ORG right now. We've got ORGAN TV on again tonight, it’s on straight after the radio show, you can read about both of those elsewhere, who said Sunday was a day of rest. The Gene Serene single is now ready to go, where has it been? Pecking away under the surface while the swan puts thing in place so it all lines up right

13th SEPT 2006 - Peck peck peck peck pecking at my head, like we always say, we do things our way, you're either with us of your not. We've been working away like the busiest of swans, looking all calm and lazy on the surface (well as lazy as it can look with a monthly magazine and a weekly TV show and a radio show on London's finest station - Resonance 104.4fm). Lots and lots going on with ORG Records at the moment, new exciting things that we're almost ready to tell you about. Watch this space and quit your pecking 

Quick bit of gig news while we're busy site rebuilding and yes I know you're all asking where the mailorder page is, it will be back in about 24 hours. THE GOD DAMN WHORES are finally off Brighton beach and ready to function, seems Ginger Wildheart has joined the line up of the band lead by Random John Poole and the Whores will be opening for CARDIACS at the London Astoria on November 10th. Talking of Cardiacs, there was a threat of some new tracks being put up on My Space the other day, more news when we have it.
