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.
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 - www.kayodot.net
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 www.pangearecordings.com
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. www.myspace.com/harveymilk
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
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
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
out until Sept, a glimpse of the forthcoming AGASKODO TELIVEREK
album 'Psycho Goulash' - its a cracking album, www.adaadat.com
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... myspace.com/thelastpeopleonearth
live session track is from a WNUR compilation, see Hella play Biblical
Violence on Youtube and be awestruck.
of awe, this deliriously gorgeous TIME OF ORCHIDS track is off their
recent album 'Namesake Caution' ...like Kayo Dot, it takes ages to get
into them but then you're hooked.
this timeless CARDIACS track is available for all to download for
free at www.cardiacs.com with a bunch
hunting - Marina
