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

About the show - rock, Jim, but not as we know it. The Other Rock Show follows the rule of: if it's in 4/4 all the way through, it ain't getting in. OK, sometimes one gets played in the in the interests of fairness, or because its sneakily imaginative... or just to be contrary.  So it doesn't matter if its avant, progressive or math rock, thrash, death, folk, punk, cheese, chalk, whatever flavour of sound you want to pin a name to - if its got some kind of structure, and the structure breaks away from our bizarre Western four beat verse chorus blah obsession, and (important!) it's a bit special, its welcome.  Rules can set you free! (Oh, and we like it even better if its new - there's an amazing groundswell of adventurous music going on out there, but it still needs all the help it can get to reach our ears).

SLEEPYTIME GORILLA MUSEUM are a splendid Californian outfit, descended from the legendary Idiot Flesh, with a growing cult following. 'Ossuary' is from their forthcoming album 'In Glorious Times' - more details from and .

FARAQUET A rather fine slice from the Washington D.C three piece band 

DEERHOOF are good for you, a dose of Deerhoof in the morning keeps you smiling all day. This from last year's instant classic album The Runners Four - or

MORVISCOUS are a London based collective with an admirable and rare Canterbury Scene influence delivered with contemporary welly.  Worth catching live, look out for them and this cracking forthcoming album 'Free Pop', not out until July 2nd though -

Also from London END OF LEVEL BOSS have been described as 'the missing link between Voivod's sense for outstanding metal structures and Kyuss's blend of warm and blastin' riffs' - not a bad description. This from new album 'Inside The Difference Engine' out on Exile On Mainstream Records (dist by Southern) on 21st May. Lots more info at

WILLIAM D DRAKE was keyboard player/composer in Cardiacs, this wonderful track from his strange and lovely solo album out now called 'Briny Hooves' on sheBear records - 

Followed by the apparantly totally unrelated BOB DRAKE who was a guitar and keyboard player/composer in Thinking Plague and has lots of fine downloads from across his exceptional and criminally unheard of albums at

This SALLE GAVEAU track was a download from the website up by the organisers of that splendid Rock In Opposition festival in France a few weeks ago - the one with lots of things like Magma, Presence, Faust, Guapo and yes I would have liked to go rather so stop telling me how lovely it was you gits. Anyway, loads of revelatory downloads from here, go hoover em up while you can -

LITE are a four-piece from Tokyo; described as the atmospheric link between Mogwai and Battles/ Don Caballero... good stuff. Find out more about them via - their album 'Filmlets' arrived late last year whilst we were off air, good to catch up with them. 
Released in the UK by Transduction Records, Birmingham

A timely outing for CARDIACS' mysterious and magnificent 'Jitterbug' from their album 'Guns' (and the compilation 'Cardiacs And Affectionate Friends' that you can get from us here at ORG)  - more soon.

Another play for this splendid rendition of 'Biblical Violence' by the astonishing HELLA, in session for The Airplay Show, WNUR 89.3FM radio Chicago in 2002 -

The Charming DAS WANDERLUST are based in Middlesbrough UK, so no doubt Sean will add some curious aside about Smog Creatures at this point.  This was from their next single, out on 21st May on Fierce Panda offshoot Cool For Cats - three tracks including one happily entitled 'Supermarkets Vs Greengrocers' .

Good hunting/listnin, Marina Organ

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.
