Another track from the recent album 'Blue Lambency Downward by KAYO DOT - hear more at www.kayodot.net - followed by a deserved outing of this rather special track from the previous DEERHOOF album; their absolutely splendid new album 'Offend Maggie', is out on the 17th November 08 also on ATP- www.atpfestival.com (to be played next week!)

Hugely promising South London band the MAYORS OF MIYASAKI are soon to release their first album, 'Buffalo' - they play Oct 14th at Catch in Shoreditch, November 20th at the Montague Arms, New Cross, and plan a big album launch party on Dec 10th at The Miller, London Bridge.

From 'Receivers' , the superb fourth album by Brooklyn band PARTS & LABOR that takes them further into psychedelic / atmospheric post rock territory, released in the UK by Jagjaguwar on 3rd Nov 08 - www.jagjaguwar.com

ROBIN TAYLOR is a composer/multi-instrumentalist and producer from Denmark. He's had a long career in various rock, progressive and jazz bands in that country from the 70s onwards but this delicious bit of untainted, timeless, proper prog is from his recent album, 'Isle Of Black' - contact www.myspace.com/transubstans   ...followed by Norfolk hermits THE FUTURE KINGS OF ENGLAND and a track from their eponymous, classic debut album from 2005 www.futurekingsofengland.com or www.backwaterrecords.com

Now, whoops of joy accompanied the arrival of the lovely double cd album BBC RADIOPHONIC WORKSHOP retrospective. First piece was recorded for BBC Wales, composed/arranged by John Baker, second was by Paddy Kingsland (who also did the incidental music for Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galazy radio plays) for a Horizon programme on Newton, 1976. Out on the 3rd November, it contains over 100 pieces of music recorded between 1958 and 1997 that will either make you gasp in wonder at the sheer raw audacity of the early synth and tape constructions, or shiver in Proustian suppressed memory reflex, or both.  Makes much electronic music sound like a backward step (and don't get me started on the current Dr Who soundtrack...ever). The BBC Radiophonic Workshop was a department within the Beeb soley for the purpose of making soundtracks, incidental music and idents in the most cutting edge way possible. I was lucky enough to visit the workshops themselves just after their closure, and was given the choice of watching CARDIACS (or at least an important chunk of them, in the guise of the Sea Nymphs) recording their John Peel Session, or playing with lots of glowing-valve-scented whirring things and mellotrons all day upstairs.  The Sea Nymphs won in the end... much of the BRW equipment ended up in the care of fellow Cardiac enthusiast Mr. Ridley, who happened to be technical chap that day - get in touch if you're reading.... where was I? Yes, hopefully this lovingly compiled retrospective will give more deserved exposure to the BBC Radiophonic Workshop composers; there's a special BBC Electric Proms event on the 25th Oct.

Cardiacs, meanwhile, are sadly out of action due to the serious illness of Tim Smith, we play 'Hurricane' every year to commemorate the anniversary of the English Hurricane and the million trees and with love for Tim who captured the very air of that strange night in this composition (only found on the b-side of 1996 single 'Odd Even' www.cardiacs.com

A well deserved play for US band EXPERIMENTAL DENTAL SCHOOL - produced with Greg Saunier from Deerhoof from the album 'Jane Doe Loves Me' - www.cochonrecords.com

 ...Leicester band MAYBESHEWILL have a split single out Nov 3rd '08 on Field Records with Her Name Is Calla - available from www.field-records.com - more info www.myspace.com/maybeshewill  ...An excerpt from a breathtaking 15 min track by TOBY DRIVER (main writer in Kayo Dot/Maudlin Of The Well) downloaded from www.tobydriver.net ...

WHAT IS RESONANCE FM?
WHAT IS RESONANCE FM?
Resonance104.4fm is London's first radio art station.. 

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. Phraiser, Paul Hood, These Records, Dave Draper, the Kosmische Club; guests like Faust, Gavin Turk, Shirley Collins and The Magic Band; and numerous one-off special broadcasts by artists on the weekday "Clear Spot". 

Resonance104.4fm is bringing a multitude of experimental sound, new music, radio art and interaction to the capital's airwaves. Resonance104.4fm broadcasts from the heart of London and is simultaneously streamed on the web at www.resonancefm.com where you can also check out our full programme listings.  Resonance104.4fm is the only station of its kind in the UK, providing access radio for London's arts community.

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.
