week's Other Rock Show band information and links and ....
in to find the everyone running around in horror because the outro pop
compilation disc left running at the end of the play (I think it was in
context with the plot) had suddenly turned into Ar**c M*nk*ys - oh, the
shame! So I started two minutes early with the full glorious PHANTOMSMASHER
track I use as an intro/theme tune every show. It's called Bishop Hopping
and it's from the self-titled Phantomshmasher album available on Ipecac.
Phantomsmasher is a James Plotkin project with drums by Dave Witte and
collaboration with DJ Speedranch. The rest of the album is just as stunningly
can you find more?
BUNGLE classic; should have played The Air-Conditioned Nightmare on account
of the sauna-like studio, but Ars Moriendi might be their best moment...
the height of their powers. From Mekanik Destructiv Kommandoh... still
stupendous live, wish they'd play outside France a bit more (or I could
afford to go see them there!). Intense, legendary, and actually very
TELIVEREK we just discovered... they claim to be 'an ordinary bunch of
Hungarian accountants'. Accountants with a hideous seething pit of weirdness
just below the surface of their sensible day-to-day exteriors, then www.myspace.com/agaskodoteliverek
are new, inspiringly imaginative and this is a track from thier fine new
album - www.myspace.com/aotea
DRAKE is a large chunk of Thinking Plague, one of the finest bands
on the planet. This is a mini-compilation of shortest tracks from one of
his solo albums - www.myspace.com/bobdrake
& BOB JAROC album/DVD Greedy Baby is breathtaking, both aurally and
visually – new album and DVD out very soon. Read JG Ballard whilst listening
to Greedy Baby.
are our fuel, they cam be found at www.cardiacs.com
are making the music that Dillinger Escape Plan promised to before they
spectacularly lunched out, this is a track from the Leeds band’s new five
track RP - www.anticulture.co.uk.
DOBSON semi-accidentally (with Michael Mellender, now in Sleepytime Gorilla
Museum) created the phenomenum known as the Immersion Composition Society.
You get up on a certain day, and attempt to compose (not improvise! It
must be repeatable) up to twenty peices of music in time for an evening
show-and-tell with your fellow ICS Lodge-mates. At last count there were
around 25 ICS Lodges across the world, mainly the US... google for Wig
Lodge, Bullet Lodge, Origin Lodge etc
were a great seventies prog/Canterbury Scene outfit...
SCHOOL may be making music right now, currently based in Brighton, email
us and we'll pass your love/encouragement on...
deservedly respected PELICAN appear as the post-rock Godspeedy option on
that great Invaders heavy rock compilation - www.myspace.com/invaderscomp
based EFTUS SPECTUN have compiled and remastered their work into
an album, available from www.eftus-spectun.com
band HUNTING LODGE have a great album out, Energy Czar, on Superfi/Farm-Girl
CIRCLES from Chicago finish with a track from their fine new album
Enter on Flameshovel Records... drummer from Riddle Of Steel
