This week's Other Rock Show info for your investigation:

GORCH FOCK are a mysterious US outfit with a big live reputation - I think they're from the vicinity of their record company Peverted Son Records, ie Austin Texas. This stunning track is off their great 2004 self titled album, which comes in great screenprinted packaging... this and DVD available mail order, write to Peverted Son, PO Box 49290, Austin, TX, USA. 
CHROME HOOF are mad theatrical types, Circulus are rumoured to be involved, so is disco. This was a small fragment of the seventeen minute long epic on their current single.
CRIME IN CHOIR - new album 'Trumpery Metier' is exhilarating, uplifting and comes out in  January in UK on Cargo - people from the F*cking Champs, At The Drive-In and The Mass involved -
This ENABLERS track is from their very limited edition split 7" single with Red Panda - or
ALEUCHATISTAS are on the ever-reliable Cunieform label: mega-tight avant dynamics, they're based in Asheville, Carolina - and
A track from the new DON CABALLERO album, 'World Class Listening Problem' ...Don Caballero are on tour in the UK at time of writing, dates at
CUTTING PINK WITH KNIVES - uncompromising or what 3 piece - more info on the Adaatat Recordings web site, where you can find their recent album
When the original Don Caballero split, composer/guitarist Ian Williams went on to form the excellent BATTLES. This track is from the fine split-EP on Warp
ZAG AND THE COLOURED BEADS are a legendarily obscure UK band from the days (ie 1985-1989) when this kind of music was only marginally commoner than rocking-horse poop.  Connected to Ring, these Cardiacs camp followers are ACTUALLY PLAYING A GIG on Thursday December 7, at the lovely Bull & Gate, Kentish Town, London, and you can get CD copies of the two original tape albums for a fiver via ...this was from 'Sawtooth Gripmaster', (one of my favourite albums of all time).
HOLY SMOKES are (possibly the planet's greatest drummer) Zach Hill's project, with composing and playing collaborations including Rob Crow and members of The Advantage (Zach Hill being one of the original halves of Hella)
NEXT LIFE are an extraordinary scandinavian elecro-avant-rock band - this from 'Electric Violence' album out on Cockrockdisco - download sample track from
CARDIACS are the UK's best kept secret, the ones who were doing it when we were all babies... if you're into any of the above bands and you've not delved into Cardiacs, well...
MICROWAVES from Pittsburgh are hard-boiled successors to Arab On Radar's head-messing throne: this is from new album 'Contagion Heuristic' just out on Crucial Blast records –
FTSE100 are a UK band; this from their mysterious six track demo  -

Next week we have the Sean Organ show with whatever comes out way this week. So far 14 Century Latin interpretations (that Latin as in language not rhythm) of Black Sabbath songs from Estonia and the brilliant Dustin’s Bar Mitzvah album that; album of the week around here this week


GENE SERENE - "the next queen of perverted electronic pop" (
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 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.
