OtherRockShow welcome to CAPILLARY ACTION a Seattle band/project
making tuneful/twisted/complex stuff that's like concentrated essence of
contemporary avant rock - these tracks were from new album 'So Embarrassing'
- available via www.pangearecordings.com
CONTRAPTION are a growing UK outfit who are just finishing their first
album - this was a taster they kindly sent us. If you see a giant lobster
made of sand on the South Bank at low tide, give the sculptors money, and
that album might get finished quicker! (Not the giant pan of bacon and
eggs, that was a bunch of imposters taking advantage of their absence whilst
at Glastonbury). The singer is known as The Squire and there's a touch
of Gong about them; what's not to love? www.myspace.com/perhapscontraption
oh, and go check out the video and the visual side of their adventure over
track HARVEY MILK, from a stonking new album, 'Life... The Best
Game In Town' which is out July 7th on Hydrahead. Recently reformed, with
ex-Thrones bassist. I think they're from Athens, Georgia; they make
the stickiest swampiest, monstrous uberSabbath dirge this side of OXBOW...
and both bands are touring together soon! (btw the Harvey Milk album
is worth possessing in the flesh for the sleeve notes and the terrible
photograph). Oxbow's frontman Eugene is a live legend; expect sold
out venues: July12, Supersonic Festival Birmingham, July13 Glasgow ABC2,
July14 Ruby Lounge Manchester, July15 Underworld London - www.myspace.com/harveymilk
album out on 18th August 08 for VESSELS - called White Fields and
Open Devices - epic post-rock with depth and heart, they're from Leeds,
are a San Francisco based band, this was from their essential 'Output Negative
Space' album' they're back to the UK in late summer. www.myspace.com/enablers
AND THE COLOURED BEADS are a very underground outfit, one of the few
doing avant rock in the UK in the mid 80s, now reformed and playing gigs!
Great live, playing the Hope & Anchor 24th July, more from www.zatcb.co.uk
we raided the pile of CDs in the loo at ResonanceFM: Sean treated you to
Thor last week, but I got luckier with the MOTOR TOTEMIST GUILD
raritiy; members are in Thinking Plague, hence brilliance. Currently on
Cuneiform Records, this track was from Archive Two, released in 1996 on
the No Man's Land label, try and find out more via or www.rotarytotem.com
are a trio from Asheville, Carolina, playing mega-complex but warm and
gritty avant rock; this was from the 2006 Cuneiform album 'What You Will'
- possibly the best introduction to them, if you want more; available from
More info: www.ahleuchatistas.com
from last year's SLEEPYTIME GORILLA MUSEUM album 'In Glorious Times'
which just gets better every time played. One of the finest bands
on the planet....www.sleepytimegorillamuseum.com
DER GRAAF GENERATOR are back! Reformed a couple of years ago,
still excelling themselves and a lot of others. From this year's album
'Trisector'. – taste some classic VdGG downloads at www.vandergraafgenerator.co.uk
try Googling for UK math rock band YOU SLUT! - far better to avail
yourself of these links: www.myspace.com/youslut1
- this was from the album 'Critical Meat' (stop press, Googling them
ever good 31KNOTS have a new album called Worried Well in the way,
a first taste from us, expect some more soon - www.polyvinylrecords.com
an outro from Vessels and another couple of minutes of the fine
bew album that's out in August...
