THE OTHER ROCKSHOW and THE ORGAN SHOW @ RESONANCE 104.4fm with MARINA ORGAN one week and SEAN O the next. 9.00pm every Sunday night...


The Other Rock Show is presented by Marina O, The Other Rock Show is about exploring 'other' time signatures within structures of rock and filtering out the conventions of the 4/4 time easy option in favour of something a little more challenging.

Meanwhile on the ORGAN RADIO SHOW Sean Owill be bringing you an eclectic mix of diverse left-field things from all points in between and beyond - the best new releases and demos that are circulating around the underground fanzine channels and landing here in the Organ office, along with news of forthcoming events and general alternative music news and goings on in and around London. 

Expect an hour of challenging alternative music each week, the kind you don’t often get on ‘normal’ music radio shows and stations, expect special guests, expect who knows what... expect to find links and details so you can explore all that you hear on after each show 

Organ show with Sean O on RESONANCE 104.4FM, Sunday JUNE 28th 2009, 9.00pm – On your FM dial all over London and worldwide via

Links and full details of the tracks and what the bands and such are doing and those all important links and....

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: NOSTALGIA 77 feat. THE FICTION TRIO – My Name Is (Tru Thoughts) – Jazzy piano led instrumental left-field opening shot for tonight’s show. Yes, that was an Eminem cover opening things up tonight, from a new compilation full of interesting things that just landed here this week. Unfolds Presents Tru Thoughts Covers. More from 

3: ONEIDA –  What’s Up Jackal? (Jafjagiwar/Brah) – Oneida have a new triple album on the way, theIr second rather experimental instalment of their Thank Your Parents triptych of releases, our of the 13th of July according to sticker on the back, goes by the name of Rated O. The Brooklyn band are at the Garage over here in London on August 18th as part of a European tour, the record label would rather us not tell you any of this though, so we didn’t alright – or 

4: GAY BEAST – Eeexxxpannndiiinnnggg (Skin Graft) – “Gay Beast are one of the few bands I’ve seen around  that are seriously challenging the form and content of modern rock music. Their compositions and execution are ambitious and effective. A truly unique and weird band” to quote Flying Luttenbacher Weasel Walter. And he’s right. Gay Beast, “Minnesota’s premier agit-prog queercore band” to quote once more, this time from the press release (wonder how many agit-prog queercore bands there are in Minnesota then?), have a new album, Second Wave, out this month – an urgent album, a precise album, a premeditated clatter of guitars, keys and pin-point drums flavoured with a dash of electronic psych and some cutting sax – a significant album, an exciting album, another thrilliant album – we love doing this Organ thing! - or explore Skingraft’s site, there’s a good page of free sample downloads to get you hooked over there, you really need to buy the whole album though –

5: MICHAEL J SHEEHY –  The Gospel According To Marcelus J Mudd (Glitterhouse) – Mr Sheehy has yet another fine album on the way, out on July 6th. His sixth album – is that six solo albums or are we counting his work with Dream City Film Club here? Whatever the score, every single record the man has ever been involved in is worth checking out, Michael makes records that matter and why he isn’t big big news is beyond us. This time some kind of soul-drenched bad-ass collection of noir-blues and some sort of concept album about boxing and taking a dive and more of his barroom stories and East End Irishness and more of that Catholic guilt and ... He’s joined this time by his band The Hired Mourners. Catch Michael J Sheehy at the Lexington, here in London, on July 16th, find out more via or 

6: ANTI-POP CONSORTIUM –  Apparently (Big Dada)  Anti-Pop Conspiracy have a new album on the way, this is the new single, out on August 10th as a free download ahead of the album that’s called Fluorescent Black. Apaprently is a slice of left-field robot-funk flavoured hip-hop rap-crunch lane switching from outside the machine -

7: INCOMING CEREBRAL OVERDRIVE – There (Supernatural Cat) -  The Italian math-tinged post hardcore noise band have a new album called Controverso – it isn’t, out until September 28th but hey, an early taste isn’t going to harm anyone... Mastodon style Meshuggah riffage, hardcore Converge growling and screaming and a touch Zombie in there with their experimental Italian progisms... or

8: ANTHRAX (UK) –  Welcome (Happy Release) – The one and only Anthrax, oh alright, the original Anthrax, the anarcho punk band Anthrax from back there, the days of Crass and all that. They’re back, first time in a recording studio for twenty years so they say – sounding as good as ever to us, and don’t we need some proper political punk rock with a bit of thought behind it right now. Two track CD single released on their own Happy Release label – or

9: HORDES OF HEL – Leave Life Behind (Regain) – Who are Hordes Of Hel? Whole load of names and faces from the Swedish black/death metal scene who are keeping their identities to themselves and who, more importantly, pushing the boundaries of extreme metal. The new album, Bloodskam, is full on black/death metal delivered with an experimental, sometimes industrial, edge... full on evil black noise – or

10: GG ELVIS AND THE TCP BAND –  Suspicious Mind (Mental) – That’s right, never mind no king of pop, the real king is alive and well and he’s been inhabited by the spirit of GG Allin! GG Elvis leads an Elvis tribute band, they do it GG Allin extreme punk rock style and the good news (oh yes, it is good news!) is that they’re on the way over here for an August UK tout that includes a date here in London, at the Camden Underworld, on August 5th. More from 

11: JASON PEGG – Everything Is Easy (demo)  - Jason Pegg, he of Clearlake, has recorded a rather delicate, rather personal cover of a Cardiacs song. Played again this week because, as most people now know, Cardiacs leader Tim Smith had a rather serious heart attack with extra complications, it happened exactly one year ago this week – the band have been rather quiet about this until this week, they’ve  put a statement up on the page that you can also find on our ORG Records page (with a little bit from us as well). Contact Jason via – isn’t Cardiacs music a beautiful thing, get well soon Tim, thanks Jason... 

12: DJ FOOD – The Illectrik Hoax (Ninja Tune) – Track from the forthcoming One Man’s Weird Is Another Man’s World EP that comes out on July 6th. Does is matter who DJ Food is? And Solid Steel? And Strictly Kev? And crunching left-field beats and different dance things and...? or – playing at the Ninja Tune night at the ICA on July 10th 

13: FULBORN TEVERSHAM  - Beachtunes (Pickled Egg) – A revisit to the last Fulborn Teversham album and a track you can find a free downloadable taster on the Pickled Egg site – Played because the Polar Bear offshoot band are headlining a twelve band Moose Factory free festival thing that runs from, twelve midday until twelve midnight – it all happens at the George Tavern, 370 Commercial Road, Stepney, London E5. It happens on July 5th, full details over at 

14: XBXRX –  F**k Your America (download) – Extreme experimental noise band XBXRX have a new album, goes by the name of Un Usper and the only place you can get it is as download from the American band’s website – – they’ve made it available for free, they are, reasonably enough, asking for donations though. Weasel Walter, he of Flying Luttenbachers and a whole bag of interesting bands/projects, played on the album, that has to be a good sign doesn’t it? WW doesn’t mess around, anything he’s involved in has to be checked out doesn’t it? 

15: POISON IDEA – Motorhead (Golf) - And why the hell not? A messy road accident of a hardcore punk rock cover of the old Hawkwind classic that Lemmy took with him when he finally figured out Bastard wasn’t the best name for his then new band. You’ll find this on the Early Years album. What are Poison Idea up to this week? Don’t ask us, new single I think - 

16: PRE – Haircutticus (Skin Graft) – Pre have a new album finished and ready to go, the beautifully noisy thing is called Hope Freaks, once more, the bits we’ve heard, are a screaming hardboiled screamathon delight. You can download this very track for free and get an early taste of the album via 

17: ARAB ON RADAR – No3 (Skin Graft) – And while you’re checking out that new Pre track, grab yourself a healthy slice of one of the most challenging bands in the world. This is a track from the Soak The Saddle album that you can also download for free from the excellent    website... they have loads of hardboiled avant goodness and challenging noisefests over there at Skin Graft... 

18: CURSIVE – Donkeys (Saddle Creek) – Cursive have a rather impressive new album out, another collection of left field thoughtful alternative post-hardcore whatever you want to call it...  Cursive have something a little different, something a little extra to explore, a little more thought and crafted challenge than your average rock band. The latest album is called Mama, I’m Swollen – an album as good as any they’ve made... consistently good... a treasure island of reality, something with a little more depth, and how much do we need a little more depth right now – or or 

19: J.VIEWZ feat NOA LEMBERSKY – Smooth Criminal (Tru Thoughts) – Last track tonight and another track from that Tru Thoughts Covers album we opened up with tonight. A rather jazzy drum ‘n bass flavoured left field version of Smooth Criminal. We made it all the way through the show without mentioning Michael Jackson, Glastonbury or anything else that’s been jamming up the media for the last few days, although it was tempting to play Strangulated Beatoffs’ The King Of Pop Has Burst. Tonight’s show was dedicated to Sky Saxon, the legendary leader of The Seeds, a real king of pop, who past away this week... 

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