We live in ineffably rich and strange times, and the evidence comes in the sounds of...

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  - 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. 

THEY 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 that’s 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 -

 ...a bit of classic DON CABALLERO, godmothers of math-rock, from album What Burns Never Returns...

Two 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

Reviewed 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 

...Not 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.

Dropping 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 

a piece 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

Sadly MIOCENE 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...

when it's hot and humid, you have to listen to OXBOW ...outro from UK band DETWIIJE...

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...  

GENE SERENE - "the next queen of perverted electronic pop" (
Resonance104.4fm is London's first radio art station.. 

Its brief? To provide a radical alternative to the universal formulae of mainstream broadcasting. It features programmes made by musicians, artists and critics who represent the diversity of London's arts scene, with regular contributions from Billy Jenkins, Savage Pencil, John Bisset, Mike Barnes, Matthew  Glammore, Peter Cusack, Caroline Kraabel, Clive Graham, Viv Corringham, Chris Cutler, Charlie Dark, Magz Hall, Harmon E. Phraiser, Paul Hood, These Records, Dave Draper, the Kosmische Club; guests like Faust, Gavin Turk, Shirley Collins and The Magic Band; and numerous one-off special broadcasts by artists on the weekday "Clear Spot". 

Resonance104.4fm is bringing a multitude of experimental sound, new music, radio art and interaction to the capital's airwaves. Resonance104.4fm broadcasts from the heart of London and is simultaneously streamed on the web at where you can also check out our full programme listings.  Resonance104.4fm is the only station of its kind in the UK, providing access radio for London's arts community.

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.
