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: THE HARDY TREE  - Long Gone (unreleased) - So Francis from Transistor Six has a new project, she announced it yesterday, the album is ready. The Fields Lie Sleeping Underneath is the name of the album and this is a first taste, you’ll find three beautiful tracks over on her My Space page. The tracks she has put up are really rather beautifully special (as special as the tree itself in old Saint Pancras Church Yard), tales of ghost woods and streams of London and go treat yourself and explore over at

3: NIGHTINGALES – Old Fruit (Klangbad) – The legendary Birmingham born again original new wave boundary pushing punks have a new album out on Feb 23rd, the album is called Insult To Injury and this was a track from it, they’re sounding better than ever –

4: RUDE MECHANICALS – Etiquette (Ex Gratia) – Body Fluids? We like Miss Roberts and her body fluids and this is the b-side of their new single, and like we said before, they are the perfect Resonance band aren’t they – what with their very English very experimental new wave jazz and there high tea vocals and toe sucking and insect obsessions and their theories about tube mice and how they’re all aliens and all that twitch and jerky time-jumping otherrockness. And this week’s excuse for playing them is a free gig at the Foundry, Great Eastern St., EC2 this Wednesday 18th Feb, oh look, just go and see -

5: THE MILK & HONEY BAND – Maryfaith Autumn (Ape) – The English band have a new album on the way, goes by the name of Dog Eared Moonlight. The band led by one time Ring/Levitation man Bob White, see this week’s Organ magazine review over at for more details or head over to

6: LOST ROBOTS – Safety From Numbers (Orchestra Pit) – Another track from the new album from a London band with some rather different post-something or other new wave alt.rock blues ideas, a rather interesting blend of songs and avant moves that take those songs to different places. Lots to discover here on this just released album - no dull aches, everything to explore. Fine songs and the recommended art of otherness. They have an album launch gig this Thursday 19th Feb at the Hope And Anchor in Islington, see the Organ gig guide at for full line up details and such – or

7: PERHAPS CONTRAPTION – Bluebells (self release) – London new prog/punk adventure and Rings and going off and things and the genesis of gongs and walking on egg shells and the stench of sweet bluebells, one of the most exciting new bands around London at the moment and they’ve jut finished their rather impressive demo album. They’re playing a free show, an all day gig, at the Lexington, Pentonville Rd, loads of bands playing, they’re on somewhere around six, see out new gig guide on the Organ website at for full details  -

8: WOMEN – Lawncare (Jagjaguwar) –  From the Canadian band’s self-titled new album Woman, the album came out in the UK on January 19th. The band will be over here in February for some UK dates including a London show at Madame JoJo’s in Soho on Tuesday 17th. Think all kinds of progressive lo-fi imagination, layers of refined vibrato and guitar wash, clever textures and music that just sounds rewardingly different - or

9: WE ROCK LIKE GIRLS DON’T – I Just Want To Stick My Head In The Bass Drum (Distort) From the Scottish girl’s debut album How Did It Get To This. A raging DIY in your face raw scathing mix of Babes In Toyland, L7, PJ Harvey, White Stripes and that extra bit of bite that’s something all of their own. The album is out this week, indeed the beautiful thing in our album of the week this week here at Organ magazine, they rock like only girls can –

10: SUIDAKRA – Scathback (Wacken) – Celtic Pagan extreme metal from Germany that’s  packed with layers of pipes and fiddles in there with the folk and the thrash and growl. A track from their impressive new album that’s out on Feb 23rd – or

11: THE ANTIKAROSHI – Downtown (Exile On Mainstream) – Opening track from the German post rock/post hardcore band’s forthcoming album Crushed Neocons. Out on the 23rd Feb, one for followers of bands like Fugazi, Jawbox, Bluetip and such, reviewed this week on the Organ pages –

12: PARTS & LABOR – Satellites (Jagjaguwar) – Canada’s full throttle alt.psych noise-pop prog outfit and the open see minute giant wall of a track that opens their latest album – kind of Nusker Du meets Cardiacs in those Satellites don’t you think. The band are in town this week as part of a UK tour. Catch them at Cargo in Shoreditch on Thursday 19th Feb –

13: RABID RABBIT – Spider (Interloper) – Chicago’s rather suffocating avant psych sludge metal three piece and a track from the new self titled album that came out last week (Organ album of the week last week) – or

14: EMMY THE GREAT – First Love (Close Harbour) – Emma’s excellent new single and another very personal, rather beautiful song from her new album, on tour throughout Feb including a show at ULU on Feb 27th. Early contender for single of the year if you ask us –

Next week Marina will be in the chair with her OTHER ROCK SHOW  and the continued exploration of rock that goes beyond the convention on mere 4/4 time

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.
