Listening to these tracks in sequence as they went out blew me away.  Not so much a collection of music in unconventional times, or exercises in playing, but a coming together of creative freedom with the ecstatic and emotional. 

KAYO DOT can't be ignored any longer; discreetly making this huge music somewhere in the US, the childe of one Toby Driver (who was also behind Maudlin Of The Well), Kayo Dot's first two albums have been seeping out via the web and slowly getting under the skin of those with time to listen.  New album Blue Lambency Downward is out on Hydra Head on 21st July -

Thrilled by 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 /

Two from HARVEY MILK, have a splendid new album  -  'Life... The Best Game In Town' which came out July 7th on Hydrahead. Just when you think they're all about volume, righteous heaviness etc they come over all emotional, something that almost all the tracks tonight seem to do. Including  OXBOW who headline the Underworld with Harvey Milk and Part Chimp this coming Tuesday. or

SCORCH TRIO are a Norwegian er, trio playing blistering Ornette Coleman/Zorn improvised instrumentals - the first bit of improv in the history of Other Rock Show, but fitting in fine. New album 'Brolt!' out on 14th July more at

PERHAPS 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! They're looking for a second guitarist - if you're creative and into amongst other things Beefheart, Cardiacs, Hella, Henry Cow and Earlygenesis (or basically the contents of this show) then get in touch with Organ or me and I'll pass your details on 

from their Shifty Disco album, the best thing NOUGHT ever recorded, they're playing Bonkersfest on Saturday 19th July - a free festival for Mad Pride in Camberwell, London, with many other fine bands, performers, poets and

Not out until Sept, a glimpse of the forthcoming AGASKODO TELIVEREK album 'Psycho Goulash' - its a cracking album,

THE LAST PEOPLE ON EARTH are a genuinely underground collective from the North - this was from their newly released first proper album 'Electric Angel' ...recorded in a rundown dockside warehouse in Hull, its an oldschool psychedelic and rather moving pop opus... ...

this HELLA live session track is from a WNUR compilation, see Hella play Biblical Violence on Youtube and be awestruck. 

Talking of awe, this deliriously gorgeous TIME OF ORCHIDS track is off their recent album 'Namesake Caution' Kayo Dot, it takes ages to get into them but then you're hooked. 

I believe this timeless CARDIACS track is available for all to download for free at with a bunch of others.

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.

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.
