Sean - ghetto blaster, mixed media on canvasSTOP PRESS: We shall be taking a short break from the show until the start of November 2010.   

THE OTHER ROCKSHOW and THE ORGAN SHOW @ RESONANCE 104.4fm with MARINA ORGAN one week and SEAN the next. 9.00pm every Sunday night...


The Other Rock Show is presented by Marina O, The Other Rock Show is about exploring 'other' time signatures within structures of rock and filtering out the conventions of the 4/4 time easy option in favour of something a little more challenging.

Meanwhile on the ORGAN RADIO SHOW Sean O will be bringing you an eclectic mix of diverse left-field things from all points in between and beyond - the best new releases and demos that are circulating around the underground fanzine channels and landing here in the Organ office, along with news of forthcoming events and general alternative music news and goings on in and around London. 

Expect an hour of challenging alternative music each week, the kind you don’t often get on ‘normal’ music radio shows and stations, expect special guests, expect who knows what... expect to find links and details so you can explore all that you hear on after each show

1: TRANSISTOR SIX - Back Yard Rocketship (Blackbean & Placenta) - Our adopted theme tune so you know where you are. Transistor Six is Frances Castle, there’s lots of fine art and creativity to explore from Francis so please please do. You can now get the whole tune downloaded for yourselves and find links to her artwork, albums, her new Hardy Tree project and lots more over at

2: WOMEN –  Can’t You See (Jagjagwar) - – Canada’s rather left field colourfully experimental other-pop makers Women have a second album out on August 30th, the album is called Public Strain. The band start the UK leg of a European tour in Sheffield on August 30th that includes a London date at Cargo on September 1st. The new album sounds equally as good as their well-received 2009 debut. 

3: EFEMER –  (Doubledge Scissor) – Efemer are from Warsaw, Poland, theyhave a new two track single on the ever reliable Doubledge Scissor label, they also play a Doubledge Scissor night this coming Saturday August 14th, see further down for more details. The gig and indeed the downloadable single are both free. No idea how to describe the band, good job we have a radio show then, a touch of Dead Can Dance, a hint of Peter Hammill, a dark undertone, shadowy? Eastern European, I don’t know, I know we liked it enough to play both sides of the single on the show this week – or 

4: AGNOSTIC FRONT –  Everybody’s A Critic (Epitaph) – Classic slice of uncompromising New York hardcore punk rock from the 2001 Dead Yuppies album played in anticipation of their London gig this coming Thursday  12th August at the Camden Underworld –

5: WOMEN –  China Steps (Jagjagwar) – second track from the impressive new album that comes out at the end of the month, see track two. 

6: BRONTO SKYLIFT –  Burt Bacharacnid (self release) An awkwardly good abrasive two piece from the top end of Scotland. Played the first three tracks of their album, The White Crow, for the first time an hour before tonight’s show and immediately had to reorganise the show, only heard the first three tracks so far, love the first three tracks, we’ll get to track four and beyond next time. Abrasive noise, awkward noise, cantankerous shouty spiky sometimes very heavy noise, primal preciseness and yes, we want more of this tight controlled clever noise... – 

7: UNIVERS ZERO –  Les Kobolds (Cuneiform) – The mighty Univers Zero have a new album, Clivages is the title, “file under rock / chamber rock / experimental / classical” says the press release, that’s vaguely near, they most certainly deserve a Prom of  their own, this is full on, fully blown, gigantic sounding classical prog rock. They from Belgium, they’ve been consistently doing this in their own unique way and on the evidence of this new album, they’re sounding as expensive as ever.  Brilliant! or or

8: BRONTO SKYLIFT – Tiger (self release) – Second track from the album, see number 6 for details

9: AUTOLUX – The Bouncing Wall (ATP)  - Track from the L.A trio’s forthcoming album, Transit Transit, out on the All Tomorrow’s Parties label on August 30th. Dreamy experimental pop., lush colours, whispered warmth, other textures, little twists all of their own. Details that bring the sound to life in such a gloriously restrained and beautifully soothing way –

10: BROWN vs BROWN – For Michael (Cuneiform) – New name to these ears, excited these ears the moment the sound came out of the speakers. They’re from Amsterdam, they have a new album called Odds And Unevens, they have an album title that kind of describes their sound. Some kind of avant-rock other Jazz that jumps and jacks and jerks and assembles things in a refreshingly different hard-boiled way. Expect lots more, we only just started explore the delights to be found here – or 

11: CUTTHROAT CONVENTION – What The? (Doubledge Scissor) – Lead track from their recent anti-single. London’s Cutthroat Convention really are one of those very rare bands genuinely trying and succeeding in terms of being different. They sound like no one, they fit nowhere, we need bands who not only want to be different but succeed in doing so – 

12: EFEMER –  (Doubledge Scissor) – See track three.

13: NOUGHT –  Cough Cap Kitty Cat (Shifty Disco) – This album is now ten years old, we need some new Nought! Prog rock, English progressive rock that progresses in all ways. Track from the band’s self-titled debut album, they say they’re working hard on a new one, they’re one of the best live prog bands out there right now. or

14: BRONTO SKYLIFT –  Danny Glover Isn’t Dead (self release) – Third track from the album, see number 6 for details

15: VOIVOD –  Brain Scan (Noise) – The pioneering left-field prog flavoured thrash metal outfit may not be the force they once were back in the day, but hey, a gig on our doorstep is always something the celebrate. The Canadians are in London for a show at the Garage on Wednesday 11th August (with Nashville Pussy and Obiat in support). This is a track off 1988’s Dimension Hatross album –

16: UNIVERS ZERO – Warrior (Cuneiform) – You see, when a new Univers Zero album lands, everything else must step aside, tonight we finished with a twelve minute epic from the band’s new album. See track 7 for more details... 

And that was this week's show. Same time, same place, next week, all being well, Marina in the chai with er Other Rock Show and things beyond mere 4/4... .
