THE OTHER ROCKSHOW and THE ORGAN SHOW @ RESONANCE 104.4fm with MARINA ORGAN one week and SEAN O 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 Owill 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 

Organ on Resonance 104.4FM, 9.00PM Sunday 20th Sept 2009. This week with Sean on DJ duties. On your FM dial all over London and worldwide via

1/intro: 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 her 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 and lots more over at

2: EFTERKLANG & THE DANISH NATIONAL CHAMBER ORCHESTRA  – Horseback Tenors (Leaf) – There’s a new live album (and DVD) from the rather magical Efterklang out next month, more of their parades and..  You can also catch them in London at the Barbican Hall performing with The Britten Sinfonia on October 28th  . or 

3: RAYOGRAPHS – Francis (Everyone We Know) – Revisit to London band Rayograph’s recent seven inch single in anticipation of the girls’ show at Cargo this coming Friday 26th and a touch of their riot grrrl flavoured creativity... or

4: WE INSIST - Deja Vu (Exile On Mainstream) – The French band’s latest album came out this week, The Babel Inside Was Terrible. A fine slice of  prog flavoured avant math post-metal (or whatever we’re expected to call it this week) –

5: FOOT VILLAGE – Take (Upset The Rhythm) - – Another slice from the new album Anti-Magic. They say they’re an acoustic hardcore band who make “thunderous drum ‘n shout music” and that’s kind of right only they’re nowhere near as mellow as that would have you believe. Members of Gang Wizard, Friends Forever and the “infamous” International Voice Of Reason, this is what we call radio friendly! – or – over here in the UK in November, consider this another early warning.

6: THE LAZE – Von Karman’s Vortex Street (demo) – Another track from From the North West of England with...hang on, let’s just cut and paste the recent Organ review of their demo that’s really an album...  THE LAZE – Spacetime Fabric Conditioner – This isn’t really a demo, this is things in progress and an early taste of some kind of masterwork and an album almost ready for release – pay attention serious forward looking cutting edge prog-friendly labels out there, I think they’re looking for someone to take notice and put this out - and someone really should, this is seriously good! We’re talking some kind of instantly attention-demand frontline blend of the best side of brooding Faith No More fused with the progressive drama and seriously challenging adventure of classic King Crimson. Radiant keyboards, moody mountains of imaginative light and shade and stop the boat, the jester, the lark’s tongue is aspic, all lighthouse keepers and whoever’s helping young Washington to cut that cherry tree down for one mad-dive prog rock clock-ticking lawn-mowing minute, stop everything! We have a serious band here, this just might be the missing link that glues together the classic English prog of long past days and the forward looking musical adventure of now. This is cutting edge post-whatever you got for people who understand the glorious beauty of early Genesis, the dramatic adventure of Van Der Graaf or classic King Crimson, this is all that kicked in to a slightly twisted here and now with such gutsy passion, with such understanding of what this thing we call prog is really about... This is the real deal, this is proper full-on unashamed cool as f**k cutting edge expertly crafted dirty-fingered keyboard driven, sax-fuelled twisted English prog rock adventure and when they get the release details sorted we’ll delve a lot further in and tell a hell of a lot more about how brilliant it is... 
                     You can catch The Laze on tour in the UK with Upsilon Acrux and Honey Ride Me A Goat at the start of October, now that is going to be a serious event of a tour, those three bands together is almost too much! More from

7: PRE – Hairent Tacos (Skin Graft) -  Pre have a new album, goes by the name of Hope Freaks, and like we already said, a glorious avant post punk new wave no wave scream fest of noise and goodness it is. Out on Skingraft records, more from

8: XTC – This Is Pop (Mute/Rough Trade Shop) – Classic slice of XTC and a self indulgent play just so I could act out some kind of radio DJ fantasy and say “This is pop” as an introduction. You’ll find this version on the Rough Trade Shops Post Punk compilation that came out via Mute in 2003...

9: CARETAKER – Rook (self release) - – They’re back, the Southern English band have been far too quiet, thought they’d split... they haven’t, they’re still out there, slightly adjusted line up and a little more brutal with their aggressively colourful mathy post-hardcore metal bite this time around. Sharp-edged shouty a-side, instrumental b-side, all rather accomplished and rather brutally angry in a rather positive light-and-shade-laced way this sunny Friday afternoon...  rather glad they haven’t quit...

10: ADVENTURES OF LOKI – Feminine Side (Maitre-d) – The Lancaster threesome have their debut album out this week, here comes the Organ review again: 
          Just one second chance, I see a little silhouetto of a man, get in touch, get in touch, get in touch with your feminine side... They’ll catch you in their headlamps, knife to your back, gun to your heart, and that’s just how it starts... Dance like maniac, lose control. Teathered and tongue-tied, feisty ball of colourful indie-punk energy (indie-punk? How damn lazy of us is that, write proper reviews godammit!) and a tag-team of girl/boy shouty vocals to go with the frantic attitude and the beating of everything to submission before they tone it down and settle in to the body of the album...  Two girls on bass and drums, boy on guitar, they’re from Lancaster, North of England, they serenade, they scream, they got it, they got, they got it, they know you’re gonna get it... Debut album after a couple of well received singles and see how they can turn you inside out.. Energy, melody, spikiness, they want to do something before you die... She’s one hell of a raw energetic drummer, Rachel is her name, anchoring it down and pulling you all over the place while the other two – Brigit and Steve – add the colour... A raw threesome, raw frantic energy that has a lot more than just the energy to hold it all together and Get Yr Beat On. Seems it was a little more than just a couple of promising singles and a ball or energy then, seems they have some substance, a touch of depth, something that marks them out as just a little more... Angular, slicing, inventive, edgy.... good good good, get in touch, get in touch with your feminine side, the tough mean no messing side... or

11: UPSILON ACRUX – Landscape With Gun And Chandelier (Cuneiform) – Another track from the rather excellently progtastic new album from the LA band. The album is called Radian Futura and we’re counting down the days to their first ever UK tour that kicks off in Chatham on October 1st with The Laze and Honey Ride Me A Goat... The tour hits London on October 6th – full details via or

12: PERE UBU – Big Sombrero (Cooking Vinyl) – Track off the new Pere Ubu album Long Live Pere Ubu – that’s right, they finally got around to writing an album about the king they got their name from. And they’re at the ICA in London this week, Friday 25th Sept  More from or

13: THAVIUS BECK – Away (Big Dada)  - Track from the LA based thinking person’s MC/hop-hop man’s forthcoming album Dialogue, out in the UK on October 5th. Tasty slice of electronic based beat driven creativity... or

14: THE RAINCOATS – Lola ((Mute/Rough Trade Shop) – What a brilliant twist on Lola this is, played this week in anticipation of the Raincoats low-key show at The National Portrait Gallery on Friday 25 September. The Raincoats, whose debut album from 1979 is reissued on 9th November, play the National Portrait Gallery, as part of the NPG's London Iconic series. The Raincoats will be presenting their icons and  performing. It is a small affair with just 150 tickets on Sale. A small tour is being arranged for November....

15: SAVIOURS – Burnin’ Cross (Kemado) – Oakland’s finest have a new album ready to go next month, Accelerated Living is a raw slice of Black Sabbath flavoured Black Flag-ness, and this was an early taste of their righteousness on the radio...

16: IMPLOSION QUINTET – Jalopy Peppers (Cookshop) – Opening track from their I Don’t Hear A Single four track single that’s out this coming Monday. Follow up to the recent debut album The Future Sound Of Yesterday. The Quintet is actually the rather singular James Baker, a British musician now based in Norway. A rather accomplished mix of operatic folk, gentle glitch, colourful prog flavours (although we really can’t have the press release referring to this as IQ!), easy on the ear textures, tunes and something that could (rather lazily) be called world music experiments – Eastern European, French, cinematic, exotic, bohemian... or
