again peoples, here is the Other Rock Show hasty essential playlist guide
so that you can hunt down which of these beauties you want to spend the
rest of your days obsessing about:
ACRUX are possibly the finest avant rock band on the planet - they're
from the US, and tonight's intro track is from their recently released
album 'Galapagos Momentum'. Ten melodically, rhythmically, gratuitously
complex compositions, not one second of filler. Available from www.cuneiformrecords.com.
AND THE ATOM BOMB are from Bristol, this is from new mini-LP 'The Spirit
Of Things' on Sink And Stove records - more info at www.youandtheatombomb.co.uk
F*CKING TANK (yeah I know, but some of you are having a sneaky surf
at work or school where foul language gets a site blocked aincha) have
a new single coming out on On The Bone records (Leeds, UK) released as
7" picture disc and tour DVD; more info from www.onthebonerecords.com
legendary RING recorded this around 1989, originally coming out
as a tape-only album sold at gigs and mail order called Nervous Recreation.
No re-release as yet.
California-based cult outfit SLEEPYTIME GORILLA MUSEUM released
this earlier this year on the superb album 'In Glorious Times'... rumoured
to have an amazing stage show and play self-built unique instruments, see
Diego four-peice SLEEPING PEOPLE have this delightful album just
out on Temporary Residence, the album is called Growing and this track
had the welcome guest voice of Rob Crow (Heavy Vegetable, Thingy).... not
to be confused with UK band SLEEPY PEOPLE - this track was originally
on one of their early 90s tape EPs sold at gigs, then re-released by Org
Records with other rare tracks as Blunt Nails In A Sharp Wall (still available
from Org mail order)...Sleepy People split and remodelled as the late Ultrasound,
more recently reforming as Sleepy People with some original members..
is a project from ex-Guapo member Matt Thompson and the two tracks played
are from the just-released album 'The Ruined Map (Film Music Volume 1)'
which is very much worth hunting down - email rashomon68 at lycos.com to
find out how. 'Each track on the album is based on a different film - not
specifically in the form of soundtracks, but rather as companion pieces
to the psychic states invoked by the more bizarre outher reaches of experimental
narrative cinema' - a mixture of avant prog, Balkan folk, trad metal, modern
composition, drone and psyche rock... includes mellotrons!
instrumental can only be found on the b-side of 1996 single 'Odd Even'
...I may be wrong, but I'm think it commemorates the English Hurricane
of October 1987... that night, Cardiacs were playing the Bull & Gate
in London (as a secret gig that I really really wanted to go to but couldn't...).
Afterwards they recounted how strange the air was, as many remember the
night was completely calm until about 10pm, when it suddenly it wasn't...
As they were loading in the gear via the Bull & Gate's dark, somewhat
Dickensian little courtyard at the back, everyone noticed how crackly,
still and electric the air was, and they swear they saw two shooting stars
make a cross in the sky... well, it reminds me of that night! Ok, Cardiacs
are ON TOUR!!!! in November: dates at www.cardiacs.com
- they have a brand new (new!!) single out as part of the limited
edition Org-An-Ised Singles series, Nov 5th, available direct from www.organart.demon.co.uk/mocardiacs...
lovely QUACK QUACK are another band from Leeds, and this was also
on On The Bone records, off their label sampler Compilation No 1- www.onthebonerecords.com
Citizen The Loathsome' is from PLAID's cd/DVD album with video maestro
BOB JAROC - out on Warp last year, still breathtaking - www.warprecords.com.
play for 'Bishop Hopping' the PHANTOMSMASHER track that has been
the Other Rock Show theme tune for quite some time now. Phantomsmasher
is DJ Speedranch, James Plotkin and Dave Witte, still available on Ipecac
third Leeds band of the show - ROLOTOMASSI are a five-piece, currently
gigging lots, this was from their five track EP on Holy Roar records, London,
from KOENJIHYAKKEI who are Yoshida Tatsuya (main man in Ruins) and
a full band, this from 'Angherr Shisspa' on Skin Graft, hear lots of samples
