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: F*CKED UP – Son The Father (Matador) – How can we put this without being over the top? Opening track from what probably is the album of the year from one of the most important bands on the planet right now. The Album – The Chemistry Of Modern Life – came out last week, a rush of new wave proper punk rock and motorik motion, of lyrics to bite on...  Best placed to find out is – catch them next here in London on November 7th at 93ft East (with Don Caballero), then they head off around the UK, Brighton 8th, Birmingham 9th and onwards, all the dates are on the Organ news pages or via that link we just gave you

3: RUDE MECHANICALS – Strange Times (RIM) – Ah yes I know, again, but I can’t resist Miss Roberts and her wonderful band and their album Glass Eye (out on Sexton Ming’s RIM label) is pure radio friendly (well in terms of Resonance FM). Twitching jazz and body fluids and strange contradictions, alien mice and clever theatrics and the real art of performance. They play next Sunday 19th at the Rock And Roll Cabaret night at Bardens Boudoir in Stoke Newington with loads of interesting bands and performers – or explore Rude Mechanicals via

4: MOHA – Karibcore (Rune Grammofon) – The rather rewarding Norwegian avant free-jazz/rock improv outfit’s new album - One Way Ticket The Candyland – just landed here, not out until November 17th but we couldn’t wait to dive in to their structured dark-edged scuzz and bendy noise and maybe a little more structured than last time out, that’s no bad thing – or

5: MAYORS OF MIYAZAKI – Hot Kids (self release) – The London band have a rather fine self released album out around about now. Tight twisty challenging rewarding hardcore new wave progressive post-punk from a band who’s previous demo records have featured lots around here. They play a Duel in The Deep night at Catch in Shoreditch, East London on October 14th -

6: SEA NYMPHS – Eating A Heart Out: John Peel Session  - Sea Nymphs recorded a very magical session a very magical session for John Peel back in 1998, it was a wonderful day down at the BBC in Maida Vale, we were there, we had just released a Sea Nymphs single on our label Org. Sea Nymphs were Tim and Sarah Smith along with William D Drake, three parts of Cardiacs. We’ve put a small blog up about the day on our My Space page and you can find Sea Nymphs details via Seemed like a perfect way to celebrate John Peel tonight 

7: MAYBESHEWILL – This Time Last Year (Field) – Hard-edged post rock flavoured euphoric riff ‘n glitch and a new release from the Leicestershire band and a new split 12” (with Her Name Is Calla) that sees the band starting to move on from their rather obvious last album – or

8: LITTLE TROPHY – They Be Ten A Penny (Toy Solder) – Brighton’s Toy Solder record have a rather fine new compilation CD album, 18 tracks and 18 relatively new underground/alternative bands – lots of good stuff including Bars, Epidime, Everyone To The Anderson... Little Trophy are favourites here at Organ, this is a new 50 second track that has all the spiky poppy (slightly thrashy, slightly Cardiac-ish) very English new wave things they do in those 50 seconds or or

9: THE BOBBY McGEES – Treasure Hunting (Cool For Cats) – The Kabeedies have a rather fine new inspiring single out, they’re from Norwich and they do things the right way and they make real proper alternative DIY indie pop, the kind of thing John Peel would have loved and played lots. And on the b-sides, they have other bands covering their song, including The Bobby McGees  - or or

10: AIDS WOLF  - Tied-Up Paper (Skin Graft) – The extremely hardboiled Canadian band have a new album out right now (on one of the very best labels in the world), this is all very very good news for gloriously difficult yelping new-wave no-wave high-pitched awkwardly-twitching extreme noise lovers. Produced by Weasel Walter – or

11: ORIGINAL SILENCE – Argument Left Hanging, Rubber Cement (Smalltown Superjazz) – “The Second Original Silence” album is here, out this week and more of their hardboiled jazz or free-jazz or pre-punk or Ornette Coleman for Black Flag fans. Original Silence are Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Terrie Ex (The Ex), Jim O’Rourke, Mats Gustafsson (The Thing), Paal Nilssen-Love (The Thing, Atomic), Massimo Pupillo (Zu)  - or

12: JOHN PEEL and a twenty second interlude and a Yardbirds record played at the wrong speed

13: KILLING JOKE – Tension : John Peel Session version (Virgin) – Track from the recently released “Peel Sessions ‘79-81 album –

14: SEA NYMPHS –  Sea Snake Beware : John Peel Session  - see track six

15: JOHN PEEL and a typically wonderful explanation of some technical problems he didn’t understand that took him off the air via a CD that the Damnably Presents people were sending out as a kind of audio flyer for the show that was their contribution tonight as part of the 4th John Peel Day – or

16: JOANNA ROBERTSON – Gardener (Texture) – delicate folk-flavoured singer songwriter from London, she has an album out called The Lighter and she was probably on stage playing the John Peel Day gig that Damnably were putting on at Catch in Shoreditch while we were playing this fine track. She’s at the Oxford Street Metro here in London on October 14th –

17: GLOBO – Spoilt Victorian Child (Comuse) – And we really couldn’t let our celebration of John Peel day go by without some reference to The Fall. Globo have recorded the whole of the classic Fall album This Nation’s Saving Grace with various guest vocalists and collaborators. The album is out on 24th November – a radical and respectful reworking from the English electronic dance outfit  Spoilt features vocals from Mia Vigar – more from

18: SEA NYMPHS – Lily White’s Party: John Peel Session – The most beautiful Sea Nymphs track of all and this very special version came with all kinds of recordings of Tim’s cats and adventures via the BBC Radiophonic Workshop such - see track six for more details. 

– thank you for listening, hope you heard something that makes you want to get involved... it is an absolute pleasure to play these tracks on the radio for you, even on days when we get soaked to the skin in a rainstorm and a half on the way in! 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..
