Chicago underground legends, pranksters and all round undefinables CHEER ACCIDENT have just released this new and entirely breathtaking album 'Fear Draws Misfortune' - possibly a career peak after over 20 years of brilliance in obscurity  (they do everything differently). www.cheer-accident.com or www.cuneiformrecords.com

Cracking debut album from these French dada-Zappa-Bunglists VLADIMIR BOZAR 'N' ZE SHERAF ORKESTAR - the album is called 'Universal Sprache' - great cover/packaging, rather exciting band www.myspace.com/vladimirbozar

Seattle/New York complex, mega-tight avant jazz/punk/prog/everything band CAPILLARY ACTION are on a massive European tour, including loads in the UK - see the Organ Gig Guide for London dates (18th March, Old Blue Last, 19th Cross kings etc)  - hell of an effort for an small independant US underground band so don't miss. These tracks are all from their 2008ish album  'So Embarrassing' available via  www.pangaearecordings.com or www.myspace.com/capillaryaction

London mathists INSTRUMENTS are playing a FREE GIG at RoTa, the regular Saturday afternoon free event at Notting Hill Arts Club - its on the main road close to Notting Hill tube, doors open 4pm until around 7pm www.myspace.com/instrumentsmakemusic

BIRDSONGS OF THE MESOZOIC are a unique quartet (three keyboards, one guitar usually) hailing from Boston, involving people from Mission Of Burma; these tracks are from a great double album retrospective out late last year on Cuneiform (yep, I know... again, but if they keep sending us albums of this quality then we can't not play it, can we?) called 'Dawn Of The Cycads' - its all their early releases from 1983 - 1987.  www.birdsongsofthemesozoic.com or www.cuneiformrecords.com

UNLEARN are from Seattle, this is from their finely crafted instrumental album 'Places' just out on NoiseOrder - www.noiseorder.com

UNIVERS ZERO are a seminal avant rock band, been going since the 70s and still gigging and gaining new respect; this track was recorded live in Hanover, March 1984. Its from the recently released nicely presented re-issue album 'Relaps: Archives 1984-1986' full of rare live stuff - www.cuneiformrecords.com

From 'Out Of The Woods' an essential compilation of their BBC Sessions, GENTLE GIANT are also a seminal 70s rock band, but unlike Univers Zero they split long ago, lost contact with the real world and think that nobody listens to this stuff any more (one of them is an A&R head of a major label).  www.progressiveears.com is a good place to demand they reform, let off steam etc. 

GUTBUCKET are a weirdass jazz/avant squonk quartet from New York with a great live reputation and a new album 'A Modest Proposal' out now on Cuneiform, from whence this track came. - www.cuneiformrecords.com

London band THE LAKE SITUATION rather quietly released this excellent self-titled album last year, they're a long-evolving project from Tim Ineson, main man of ahead-of-their-time London band Nub; this is on And Then Records (dist Cargo) www.andthenrecords.com

Next Sunday at 9.00pm Sean O on air with a whole bag load of the adventurous outsider music we talk of on the pages of Organ... 
 
 

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.
