1/intro: TRANSISTOR SIX – Back Yard Rocketship (Blackbean & Placenta) - our adopted theme tune so you know where you are. Transistor Six is Frances Castle, there’s lots of her fine art and creativity to explore from Francis so please please do. You can now get the whole tune downloaded for yourselves and find links to her artwork, albums and lots more over at

2: SCORCH TRIO – Olstra (Rune Grammofon) – A slice of the opening ten minute track of the new album that’s released on July 14th. The free spirited hand-in-glove complex progressive jazz rock power trio from Norway have third album for you. Analogue recording old school set up live in a room and go – no edits, no mixing, just go... or

3: PORT O’BRIEN – I Woke Up Today (City Slang) – Now how good is this new single from the San Francisco alt/folk outfit, this I do believe is from their debut album, the single is released tomorrow, July 7th - or or

4: PERSIA – Mic (demo) – Persia is from Persia via Manchester (or maybe that should be the other way around?). We heard her first on the Six Pillars show here at Resonance a few weeks ago and had to go find some for ourselves – excellent female rap, unique Manchester rap, wonderfully challenging Persian rap – Check her out here - 

5: FIGHT LIKE APES – Lend Me Your Face (Model Citizen) - Forthcoming new single from just about the best pop band around at the moment, MayKee and her Dublin gang and butter wouldn’t melt but she’ll cut you with glass and you won’t have such a pretty ass then, she’ll put you in a cast and cast off all her memories, they’ll fill you up with petrol and you’ll take off like a jet, I love this band! The single is out next week on new Irish indie label Model Citizen -

6: PEDRO –  I Am Keeping Up (Mush) - So much inspiring new music around right now, these are rich times. Free-jazz based electronica and all kinds of colour and dance and Pedro pushing himself and your idea of what he’s been about so far. Kind of electric eclectic folk/world flavoured journeys that are very much pushing in to the future – sublime electronic organic and the broadening of horizons, slices of glowing instrumental hip-hop and clever compositional structure –  real avantness and experiments that never lose focus, a crafted sound, intelligent rewarding gliding glowing warmth from deepest London. Jazzy, glitchy, flowing, intriguing, rewarding, delightful – different! Pedro is alter ego of beatsmith/producer James Rutledge and this track is from the new album You Me And Everyone. Find out more via or

7: VILE IMBECILES – Puncture Me In Touch Buster (Tea Vee Eye) – The Brighton band have a new album out next week called Queenie Was A Blonde, jarring awkward fluid flowing new wave deconstructed reconstructed punk ‘n blues ‘n new wave or something like that. They’re a band who seriously divide opinion, we made it the Organ album of the week on the website this week so you know where we stand. Simple fact is Vile Imbeciles are gloriously different, not a different language, just a different way OF assembling the new wave artrock indie language we already have so that it makes no logical sense in a perfectly logical sensible way. And you, the half suffocated, you need this new breath of fresh awkward gulping troublesome air. A beautifully deranged perfectly arranged rather recommended second album and like we said only the other day, disassembling alternative pop and putting it back together so it fits a different way and works just as well as it ever did. An excellent album -

8: THUMPERMONKEY LIVES – Scrodingers Cat Lives (demo) – The London based pronky progressive epic metal band have a new line up and they’re back playing live again, they’re playing Millers in London Bridge, a stone throw from the Resonance studio on July 9th – you’ll find links for high quality downloads via

9: FORGOTTEN – Conquer (download) – A rather different death metal / folk rock hybrid from Ankara, Turkey. The band have been around since the 90’s, they recently got back together for another shot so it seems and these are demo recordings that you can find via

10: DEADHEAD – Heavy Metal Thunder (Displeased) - Serious hissing spittle-spitting raw messy punky road pizza of a venomous old school speeding thrashing album and a whole bag of heavy metal thunder. An outrageously raw and blistering version of Saxon’s Heavy Metal Thunder! Oh yes, that’ll have you down the front with embroidered back and we’re an army of denim and fill your hearts with 747 fists in the air. This is from the new re-issue of the album originally released back in 1999 and this new version comes with a whole bus load of nice raw live bonus tracks, ok, so both studio and live teacks sound like a bunch of yappy jack russell dogs being fed in to a rip crunching meat-mincing machine and the “remastered for improved impact” aspect is a little hard to pick up on but this is serious bullet belt wearing heavy metal for people who look towards the relaxing options of Slayer or Sadus for their chil-out breaks from the onslaught – oh yes, proper thrashing raw punky heavy metal thunder –

11: TEQUE –  State Of Payne (Download) – From Finland with a much needed change of pace and some instrumental electronic ambience while we catch our breath and recover from the whiplash, fine out more over at

12: FIGHT LIKE APES – Lightsabre Cocksucker Blues (Model Citizen) – Two minute blast of b-side action and a cover of Mclusky’s song that pretty much makes it a Flight Light Apes song – they really can take anything they want, yes gushing some more. There’s 500 copies released in the UK, grab one, they’re going to be gold dust. They’re playing everywhere right now and they more than back it up live. Their debut single was the Organ single of the year last year, they get better by the day. Back in London at Somerset House on July 15th with We Are Scientists -

13: SIGOR ROS –  Gobbledigook (download) - You can download a legal slice of free Gobbledigook from the album "Med sud I eyrum vid spilum endalaust right here. The fine fine Icelandic texture-pop outfit don’t really need any words or too much play from us now, there are pushing boundaries as much as ever though so here you go. Download it from

14: DAVID BOWIE  - Andy Warhol - Live (EMI) – A track from the Live Santa Monica ’72 that’s out this week  –  “I can tell that I’m totally into being Ziggy by this stage of our touring, It’s no longer an act, I an him...” Clear to see why this live recording has been regarded by diehard fans and respected critics as the bootleg to have if you’re anywhere near a serious devotee. So the album that has been circulating as a bootleg for years has been taken and officially released for the first time.  Recorded some ten dates in to the American Spiders From Mars tour and originally broadcast live by a radio station in LA complete with wonderful tape hiss and brilliant resonance. The live recording is released on heavy duty gatefold double vinyl and a rather neat box CD that comes with reproductions of promo photos and posters from the time and it jut might be the perfect live album, amazing sound quality -

15: FLYING LUTTENBACHERS – Trauma 4 (ugExplode) – The legendary 2001 Trauma album has recently been released on CD for the first time. Free-form complex no-wave noise jazz and the Luttenbachers functioning as a three piece this time around – pretty much anyone who is anyone in North American experimental avant rock has passed through Weasel Walter’s outfit. One of the most original, hardboiled, challenging and rewarding boundary pushing bands out there – Weasel has now retired the project, there’s albums out there on labels like Skingraft and ugExplode and every one of them worth your time and money -

16: MY TIGER MY TIMING – This Is Not The Fire (demo) – new band to us, contacted us via My Space this week. They’re from New Cross, South London and their clever alternative experimental pop is rather breezy and rather different. They play the Old Blue Last on July 22nd and you ca nfind out more via

17: CR AVERY –The Boxer Who Just Returned From London (Bongo Beat) – This is such an fine and different track, Here’s what we said when we played it back in March: “One of those rare occasions when a piece of music really does have the ability to stop everyone. A track from the North American’s new album Magic Hour Sailor Blues – it really is a case of sex, drugs and spoken word. Poetry like you never heard it before - hip hop, blues, folk, country, Americana and words to really hang on to, this really has to be one of the albums of the year. Think Tom Waits or Neil Young in to poetry, hip hop and human beatbox action” - and the last line is a reference to Simon and Garfunkel’s The Boxer and so the new Me First album gave us the perfect excuse to play it again – or

18: ME FIRST AND THE GIMME GIMMIES – The Boxer (Fat Wreck) - The last line of that CR Avery track is a reference to Simon and Garfunkel’s The Boxer and here it is on the new Me First album that just landed. Have Another Ball is yet another set of classic 70’s American rock songs done heads down race you to the end punk pop style – this time they get to grips with John Denver, Hall & Oats, Neil Diamond, Elton John – Me First are A punk rock supergroup featuring members of NOFX, Lagwagon, Swingin’ Utters and Foo Fighters. Punk rock is sometimes fun –

19: JO GABRIEL – Masque Of The Red Death (Ephemera) – She’s wonderful, her latest self released album comes with added vocals, a lazy signpost would point you vaguely in the direction of Kate Bush or Tori Amos but she’s far far more than just another one. This track is from one of her very special instrumental album called The Last Drive In. A perfect way to end tonight’s show - explore her via

– thank you for listening, hope you heard something that makes you want to get involved.... same time same place next week with Marina’s Other Rock show and the exploration of rock music that adventures beyond the conventions of 4/4...
