The album is out on May 28th, a monster of an album – 

7: FIELDS – Schoolbooks (Atlantic) – From the very fine English band’s debut album Everything Last Winter, the album came out last week (April 2nd) a scrumptious bittersweet sunny folky post-rock flavoured set of beautiful pop songs and album of the week this week on the Organ website –

9: CAR BOMB – Cellophane Stiletto (Relapse) – A vicious blast of wildly technical progressive metal terrorism and jazz-inspired blasts from the schizophrenic Long island NY quartet’s recent album (released in Feb 2007) – or

10: OURLIVES – Sandra (ORG) – Lead track from the forthcoming debut single from the Icelandic band who arrive in the UK at the end of this week for a full UK tour that includes London dates at the Water Rats and Camden Barfly.

12: TWO BANDS AND A LEGEND – Louie Louie (Smalltown Superjazz) – Ah Avant what? Suck on that! A meeting between The Thing and Cato Salsa Experience, a collaboration that first came to be at the Kongsberg Jazzfestival in Norway in 2004. Is this the best version of the classic since Black Flag ripped it apart? I didn’t ask that, Thurston Moore did. The album is out on June 4th and there’s a stunning version of PJ Harvey’s What The F**k on there - –

13: ANHILATOR (Feat. LIPS) Army Of One (SPV) – A track from the forthcoming twelfth studio album from the Canadian old school thrash metal legends, guest vocals from Anvil’s Lips. The album is called Metal, of course it is!

The album is out this Monday.

16: CITIZEN FISH – Clear Channel F*** Off (Fat Wreck) – A track from the recent Citizen Fish/Leftover Crack split album, two punk rock juggernauts colliding on one outspoken album. This is the Fish version of the Leftover Crack song and their appreciation of those media controllers Clear Channel – listen to those lyrics now, they’re trying to control your music and with it your thoughts – You’ll fine a rather interesting Leftover Crack interview on the Organ website (you’ll also find an interesting Warrior Soul interview that we put up this week – we need bands who ask questions)

17: PEACH – Catfood (Mad Minute) Peach’s version of King Crimson’s Catfood, taken from the London band’s 1994 album Giving Birth To A Stone.

When Gravity Fails are also on that bill -  or

18: MAYORS OF MIYAZAKI – Critics Lack Conviction (demo) A track from the Cardiff band’s excellent five track demo (they may have relocated to London now), challenging math-rock/post-punk adventure that comes highly recommended both in demo form and indeed live –

19: OURLIVES - Haunted By My History (demo) – An instrumental taste of glorious things to come from the band from Iceland, this is just a sketch book taste of thier post-rock side, the piece has vocals now and they’re recording it properly next week. See details above or

next week, same time same place for Marina’s turn and THE OTHER ROCK SHOW where she explores rock music from beyond the restrictions of the 4/4 time conventions
