live in ineffably rich and strange times, and the evidence comes in the
jaw-dropping KOENJIHYAKKEI have a reissue of their seminal (hard-to-find)
early album Hundred Sights Of Koenji with re-recorded drums and remastering
- samples and info at www.skingraftrecords.com - Koenjihyakkei
are a branch of Ruins, sharing composer Tatsuya Yoshida; this album was
engineered by Hoppy Kamiyama, the (apparently transvestite, frog obsessed)
svengali behind Ex-Girl.
CAME FROM THE STARS, I SAW THEM are a UK outfit making magical weirdass-disco;
this track was kind of based on 5/8 and is from a great album thats out
this Monday 12th May called We Are All In The Gutter But Some Of Us Are
Looking At.. on This Is Not An Exit Records - www.myspace.com/theycamefromthestarsisawthem
bit of classic DON CABALLERO, godmothers of math-rock, from album
What Burns Never Returns...
New York bands - the hard-boiled romantics of TIME OF ORCHIDS and
the prizewinning acrobatics of BEHOLD... THE ARCTOPUS - the former
from dazzling album Namesake Caution (available from Cuneiform).
Behold...The Arctopus can be found at www.myspace.com/beholdthearctopus
in the early editions of The Organ getting on for twenty years ago, was
this magical tape album by extremely underground ZAG AND THE COLOURED
BEADS - who unexpectedly reformed last year, and played a splended
gig (with a better-than-ever Wizards Of Twiddly) last night. Strange very
English jazz-prog with great tunes, lots of lovely tape hiss and something
of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band about them - and something all their own
- finally captured on to CD and available for a fiver from www.zatcb.co.uk
sure where to get music by FTSE100 at the moment, but this cracking
demo came out in 2006; the main man and composer Ben is now in Truckers
Of Husk who are very worth seeing/hearing; both bands are something special.
on the doormat mere days ago came this debut album, Stem The Tide from
London band KOE - fine contemporary heavyish post-rock with
proper prog elements, self-released and impressive. Contact Koe via myspace.com/koeband...
from DOMINIQUE LEONE (under the moniker 1-0) that's been hovering
around for a couple of years - great US based composer and supporter of
avant rock/prog things www.myspace.com/dominiqueleone
dissolved right after putting out an album way way ahead of it's time (whilst
being spot on contemporary) - grab this album if you find it, and if you
see them tell them to get back together... the true future sound of London...
it's hot and humid, you have to listen to OXBOW ...outro from UK
Same time, same place next
for the Organ hour on Resonance FM Next week with Sean Organ and a whole
bag of cutting edge alternative slices of whatever will be...
