8: GIANT PAW – Early Riser (Feral Electronics) Giant Paw put out these great limited edition CD singles that come with great screen printed cards, or do they put out these great cards that come with CDs that are laced with this rather unique locked on electronic/kraut sound that’s really nothing like that?

Don’t you dare disagree, they can live without yer! Eastender hair pulling riot grrl attitude with more sherbet dib-dabs than you so shut it right! Two girls, one boy, six songs, and a debut single proper (before it was demo tapes and such). A do-not-mess take it or leave it attitude and all even better than last time – more vital love-heart crunching DIY lo-fi riot girl punk fizz and sugar rush chaos and here’s the link – www.myspace.com/candypanicattack or www.cherryademusic.co.uk

12: TO THE BONES – Tycho (ORG) – The Bolton band who are talked of in terms of a mix of Motorhead/Pixes/80’S B-Line Matchbox (and who just played with Deerhunter and  bonded so it seems) are back in London tomorrow at London’s Oxford Street Metro tomorrow (Monday 19th) on an Organ bill that also features the thrilling ten piece London ska/hip-hop experience that is Imperial Leisure and the excellent Bee Stings – if you want to get on the cheap guest list then e.mail us via www.organart.com before 3.00pm. More about To The Bones via www.tothebones.com

13: BEE STINGS – Show Me Happy (Council Pop) - London four piece fronted by a rather powerful girl called Valkyrie and dealing out a collision of pristine leftfield pop, experimental dance and dirty rock.

14: THE JELAS – Pure Mathematics (demo) - Another track from the Bristol band’s excellent Mistakes Drives The Blunder Bus demo (Organ demo of the week a couple of weeks ago) Ten well crafted and well recorded DIY tracks, some girl fronted, some boy fronted, all deliciously lo-fi and thrillingly bendy –  hard-boiled mathematics, difficult - good – not that they’re hard to listen to, no this flow easily, they just soothe you in a slightly different way – they’re incredibly infectious with their clandestine designs and pumping goodness into you veins. Any band who have a song called   Asparagus have to be worth checking .– www.myspace.com/thejelas

15: IQ – Born Brilliant (GEP) – The nowadays neo-prog band from the South of England have just announced a London show as part of their European tour, they’re at the Astoria on December 15th. They’ve been about since 1981 doing their epic/underground prog thing, not quite so left field now as they were in their darker/quirkier early days, the survivors are still worth an ear and a play though - this was a track from their 2004 album. Find out more via - www.gep.co.uk/iq

18: EFTERKLANG – Maison De Reflexion (Leaf) – And the only way to end tonight’s show is with another slice of the beautiful Efterklang in anticipation of Bush Hall on Friday – see track two for details/links.

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.
