ORGAN @ RESONANCE 104.4 FM PLAYLIST
SEAN ORGAN RADIO SHOW – RESONANCE 104.4FM, SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 17
Who got played? Where do you go to find out more? 

1: TRANSISTOR SIX  – Back Yard Rocketship  - 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 so please please do. You can now get the whole tune downloaded for yourselves and find links to her work and lots more over at www.myspace.com/transistorsix

2: SKULLFLOWER  -  Black Wind (Crucial Blast) The UK noise-trance legends have a new album out on excellent San Francisco label (and US home of The Mass and So I Had To Shoot Him!) Crucial Blast. And now because we’re in a rush we shall borrow some words from the label website - A black void of utterly destroyed drone rock and blearly eyed violent meditation, triumphant recordings and apocalyptic mega-metal and machine smashing kraut rock, radioactive rage swarms and an album built on some of the heaviest harshest abrasive sounds known to beast. The album is called Tribulation  - www.crucialblast.net   - and so what if the nine tracks are all rather alike and all long ass and they’d do your head in if I played it all on the radio (I would if our show was more than an hour long, never enough time) so we just dipped in to three tracks and blasted you a taste or two and them dipped out again. 

3: LADY PROMISE - The Battle (download demo) – Straight out of New York City and out to Jackie Chan your ass. I hadn’t heard of her until this week, got an e.mail from her, something about not letting her smile fool anyone and how she had words to spit – and indeed she does, doing it all herself and takeing no shit from anyone, cutting edge streetwise rap girl in total artistic control – go download the non radio friendly cussing everyone who gets in her way version for yourself over at www.myspace.com/ladypromise 

4: CRASS – What Do You Want (Overground) – A previously unreleased version from the soon to be released Anti-Capitalism: Anarcho-Punk Compilation Vol 4 album (out Oct 9) Another 23 of your finest authority loving pop hits and the fourth in this fine series focusing on that classic period of anarch punk history that was the start of the 80’s. This time featuring Crass, Kravats, Culture Shock, Conflict, Atomic Filth, Antisect and lots more. Excellent sleeve notes including an introduction from Penny Rimbaud, if you don’t know that vital period of punk rock history then go explore, if you do then these albums are full of treasures and treats and things you probably lost when your bus got trashed in the Beanfield – www.overgroundrecords.co.uk

5: SKULLFLOWER – Sarragossa (Crucial Blast) – See above and woooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaassssssszzzzzzzzzzzzfiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiicrunkkkkkkkkkkkk

6: CATS AND CATS AND CATS – (Win Win Win) Hotel At The End Of Youth – track from the Cats forthcoming debut 40 minute plus five track album (yes indeed nice long tracks) from one of our favourite bands right now.  They’re from Staines/Tunbridge Wells, not sure when the album is out, it’s called Sweet Drunk Everyone and it’s loaded with sweet sweet sweet uplifting post-rock adventure - go ask then over at www.myspace.com/catsandcatsandcats or www.myspace.com/winwinwinrecords

7: JOHN CALLAGHAN – Do You Love it (Uncharted Audio) – I still have my hands, and my mind and uncharted audio, who is John Callaghan? I don’t know, there’s this compilation album called IDEA / HOARD / UNCUT with all kinds of way out left field electro pop, found sound and cutting things that can’t be explained in mere words, the whole album sounds like a night out with Resonance – people/names like Square Root of Evil, Villain, Treewave, Cursor Minor  – more from www.unchartedaudio.com or www.johncallaghan.co.uk – the album is loaded with treats, every single track is worth your time, ears and the mere fiver the CD will cost you – very highly recommended.

9: VISION AND THE RIDDLE –  NYSFC (Post Records) I Want The New York Super Fudge Chunk, and why not?  Track from the album Tilt and the first release on new label Post (and on white vinyl tooooo). V&theR are London DUE Goo and Al, says here they’ve been quietly making music from field recordings, found sound, treated instruments and other obscure samples for the last 15 years. This is their first release for a label other than their own, loads of excellent stuff on here for us to re-visit over the next few weeks. www.visionandtheriddle.com / www.postrecords.co.uk / www.myspace.com/postrecs

10: PROJECT: VENHELL – Pfft To You Rules (Valentine Bitch) From Aberdeen (Scotland) with some positive jarring guitar noise and bite. A track from their new I Feel Back What They’re Looking At Me For album. A band for you noisy Sonic Youth, Fugazi, Jesus Lizard, Les Savy Fav fans who like it all abrasive and lurching and yapping in your face and indeed pfft to the rules. We love it, got it in the post on Saturday, on to the radio on Sunday, fame and fortune on Monday then? Probably not but you could go say hello over at www.myspace.com/projectvenhell or www.valentinebitch.co.uk or indeed www.myspace.com/valentinebitch

11: GENE SERENE – I Can Do Anything (ORG) Self confessed London/Berlin electro bitch goddess and a track from here new EP – Yeah, it’s out on our label, we can play our own releases can’t we? Don’t tell anyone about the Genesis sample though, we probably didn’t get permission -  www.organart.com is where you go for more info. Catch her at the Ladyfest gathering in Newcastle this month as well as in a couple of art galleries in Germany.

12: MOTLEY CRUE – Shout At TheDevil (Motley Records) – well Gene said I could do anything and it’s about time there was some Crue on Resonance (alright you’re going to tell me Horse Hospital had a whole hour of it last week) Anyway, you don’t need a link to them, here’s something useful – www.schnews.co.uk, all kinds of interesting things to digest and question over there. Next week Manowar.

I don’t know but I do know there’s this compilation album called IDEA / HOARD / UNCUT with all kinds of way out left field electro pop, found sound and cutting things that can’t be explained in mere words, the whole album sounds like a night out with Resonance – people/names like Square Root of Evil, Villain, Treewave, Cursor Minor  – more from www.unchartedaudio.com – the album is loaded with treats, and I say again every single track really is worth your time, ears and the fiver the CD will cost you – highly recommended (did we say that already?).

16: MESA VERDE – Substance Abuse (Art For Blind) – Off their rather fine Amor Fati EP, they’re from Glasgow (and on a rather fine DIY label from Barnsley, excellent packaging/artwork from Angelo Milano) and they deal out frantic fast tuneful/awkward hardcore that back in the mid 90’s before the terms got hijacked and watered down for safe consumption by major label marketing departments, would have been considered fine fine Emo/screamo.  More from www.artforblind.com or www.myspace.com/mesaverde

17: SKULLFLOWER – Dwarf Thunderbolt (Crucial Blast) – See above and woooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaassssssszzzzzzzzzzzzfiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiicrunkkkkkkkkkkkk again

18: JESUS LICKS – Dalek Chorus (Post) Some nice banjo vs ukulele acoustic weirdassness, well things were getting a little loud what with the shouting at the devil and Skullflower and such. Second release on Post, this time a pink vinyl seven inch (looks like Post is going to be a good label). Debut single from the two girl/two boy four piece from London. I do believe there’s only 500 of them and copies are flying out of Rough Trade already so get your skates on www.postrecords.co.uk / www.myspace.com/postrecs

19: OPTIMIST CLUB - Another track from the forthcoming debut album. The band are releasing this album themselves next month, they really are the best band in London right now, go find out over at www.myspace.com/optimistclubband

20: FTS100 – B.A.P.S (demo) - From Cardiff withan excellent demo loaded with Instrumental math/post rock that does all the talking it needs to, this fine demo/self released six track EP was waiting for us in the Resonance studio post bag and we loved it so much that this is the third week of attention for it. You can find out more over at www.myspace.com/ftse100.

21: THE GRESHAM FLYERS – Shiftwork (Barryland) More coloured vinyl, it’s like being back in the last century, this time blue and some classic sounding 80’s indie pop for Wedding Present fans (the b-side is more like Sparks though) Mine is number 93 of the limited edition of 500, they’re from London and you can get one from www.thegreshamflyers.com 

22: TRANSISTOR SIX – ah, the tune that means our hour is over already, we were just getting warmed up, over for another week and we’re off to watch Organ TV – our TV show is now repeated Sunday nights on Open Access TV here in the UK – WHY ISN’T EVERYONE ELSE MAKING DIY TV, it’s like radio with pictured and anyone can. Marina’s turn again next Sunday and her OTHER ROCK SHOW that features on rock in unconventional time signatures and such.

WHAT IS RESONANCE FM?
WHAT IS RESONANCE FM?
Resonance104.4fm is London's first radio art station.. 

Its brief? To provide a radical alternative to the universal formulae of mainstream broadcasting. It features programmes made by musicians, artists and critics who represent the diversity of London's arts scene, with regular contributions from Billy Jenkins, Savage Pencil, John Bisset, Mike Barnes, Matthew  Glammore, Peter Cusack, Caroline Kraabel, Clive Graham, Viv Corringham, Chris Cutler, Charlie Dark, Magz Hall, Harmon E. Phraiser, Paul Hood, These Records, Dave Draper, the Kosmische Club; guests like Faust, Gavin Turk, Shirley Collins and The Magic Band; and numerous one-off special broadcasts by artists on the weekday "Clear Spot". 

Resonance104.4fm is bringing a multitude of experimental sound, new music, radio art and interaction to the capital's airwaves. Resonance104.4fm broadcasts from the heart of London and is simultaneously streamed on the web at www.resonancefm.com where you can also check out our full programme listings.  Resonance104.4fm is the only station of its kind in the UK, providing access radio for London's arts community.

Imagine a radio station like no other. A radio station that makes public those artworks that have no place in traditional broadcasting. A radio station that is an archive of the new, the undiscovered, the forgotten, the impossible. That is an invisible gallery, a virtual arts centre whose location is at once local, global and timeless. And that is itself a work of art. Imagine a radio station that responds rapidly to new initiatives, has time to draw breath and reflect. A laboratory for experimentation, that by virtue of its uniqueness brings into being a new audience of listeners and creators. All this and more,  Resonance104.4fm aims to make London's airwaves available to the widest possible range of practitioners of contemporary art.
