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 AUG 9th 2009, 9.00pm – On your FM dial all over London and worldwide via

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: SLEEPER – Faulty (Mush) – An opening minute from a track you can find on the new Sleeper album Behind Every Mask. An instrumental album of experimental electronic noise, sculpture, sound generators, effects units, a dot matrix printer turned into a drum machine and claustrophobic atmospheric sample-based hip-hop goodness.... Sleeper is from “the middle” of the USA, and nothing to do with the 90’s brit pop band of the same name – or

3: GRASSCUT –  High Down (Ninjatune) –  Grasscut’s new single is a sweeping slice of melodic beauty, grasscut fresh indeed. Quiet unassuming  epic pastoral  delights, glitch-warmth, and the feelings of Sussex, the Downs and relaxed experimental beat driven refined gentle goodness –

4: UNITED FRUIT – Track The Hunt (She Said) –  From the Glasgow band’s debut EP proper (on the back of demos and such), here’s the recent Organ review: “Eather urgently abrasive five track EP from this immediate Glasgow four piece. Tightly wound jagged guitars and new wave post hardcore angular hardcore noise-rock goodness that bites down hard.. .Reptile Mistress indeed, a demanding sound, a wired sound, all creeping in from different angles and gooseberries jarring with blackberries and lemons and bananas and experimental visceral intensity and we like this lots... all discordant and jagged and nagging at your head to eat your oranges and your Fugazi and your Shellac and your Mclusky and... yes... go grab your united fruit, five a day needed, obey your mistress, strength of character.. –

5: VOWELS – Sonny (Loaf) –  From the forthcoming album The Pattern Prism (out 7th September and the consistently good LoAF label, fast becoming one of those labels that  demand you pay attention to all their releases, who ever it is  they’ve got for us this week, you know they’re going to be interesting). Vowels is a band comprising James Rutledge and drummer Chris Walmsley. More meticulously crafted melange of sound and rhythm that cites Krautrock as a starting point. A warm ride through crystal clear ambience via dense intense experimental noisescapes – or

6: LED BIB – Yes, Again (Cuneiform) – Track from the London jazz-rock band’s rather fine new album of foward-looking challenging earfood. You can download this track and get a taste from the band’s website. Led Bib play a free instore gig at Rough Trade East in Brick Lane this Wednesday 12th August. or or

7: LIME HEADED DOG –  Bobby Fischer (Volcano Attack) – Track from the debut album KFUM KFUK (out on 3rd August) and a genuinely different band, awkwardly fluid other pop and seriously hyperactive energy, different and so easy to go with, why aren’t all bands like this? You can be different... different, good, busy...  good good good...  Catch the strangely headed dog at the Fly, New Oxford Street, on August 19th -

8: GRENOVILLE – City Of Sirens (demo) – Now this looked hopeful from the start, hand painted envelop, good looking CD, fine press release and a one man bedroom band from La Laguna, Tenerife (we love our daily post sack). Grenoville is Javier Afonso and you’d never guess he did all this in a bedroom, sounds likefrontlinestudio work of quality to us. Fine album’s worth of tracks in a kind of Nick Cave, Nick Drake manner. Javier is over here in London now trying to put a band together and get this album out, the album is called Shadows Of The Legion  and judging by the feedback and e.mails waiting for us from you listeners, you were as impressed on first play as we were...

9: ARAB ON RADAR –  No3 (Skin Graft) –  A self indulgent three minute ten second blast of one of the finest band’s of recent times. Absolutely no reason for us to be playing this tonight other than the fact that their challenging awkward fluid post-new wave post-punk constructions always sound good boiling up on the radio... or

10: JAMES YORKSTON & THE BIG EYED FAMILY PLAYERS – Low Down In The Groom (Domino) – James Yorkstom has a new album out this Monday, the Scotsman has stripped it back to the simple art of folk songs with a collection of traditional songs from the length and breadth of Britain & Ireland called Folk Songs – simple as that really, and all rather beautiful – or or

11: DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA – Lucy Fears The Morning Star (Ascendance) – The Diablo Swing Orchestra have a new album on the way (on September 21st) and it builds massively on all the promise of the last one, their debut was interesting, this second album nails it! We’re talking a swing orchestra with overblown theatrics, grandiose operatic vocals, metal riffs, delirious tunes for the damned – or

12: GG ELVIS AND THE TCP BAND –  Suspicious Mind (Mental) – That’s right, 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 tour that you’ve now almost missed, one last play tonight through due to a last minute end of tour gig here in London, at The Royal Sovereign, Clapton, E5, on Monday August 10th. More from – We’d love to be playing some GG Allin for you but that’s probably pushing the patience of the hair-tearing station bosses just a little too much... 

13: AGNOSTIC FRONT – Urban Decadence (Epitaph) –  Track from the forthright New York hardcore street punk band’s 2001 album Dead Yuppies, played tonight in anticipation of the band’s London show at the Camden Underworld this week – 11th August...

14: THRACIA – Eyes Shine Black (demo) – Track from the Northampton based female-fronted punkish metal-flavoured hardcore band Thracia’s new demo which I guess they plan to release as a single sometime soon with someone or other. Sounds like they’re ready for a ‘proper’ release to me, and you’ don’t mess with frontwoman Gen. Catch them this week opening for Agnostic Front at the Camden Underworld this week – 11th August to be exact  -

15: PETER HAMMILL –  Stumbled (FIE) – Another visit to his fine fine new solo album that really is as good as anything he’s done over the forty year plus span of cutting edge music (both solo and as frontman of Van Der Graaf Generator). The latest album us called Thin Air. More from

16: PERE UBU with SARAH JANE MORRIS – Bring Me The Head (Cooking Vinyl) –  Oh, now here’s a goodie that dropped through our letterbox this week... New Pere Ubu album coming out in the UK on September 14th. The album is called Long Live Pere Ubu and it seems that, some 34 years in, the long standing US new wave “inventors of modern music” are taking on the proto-absurdist stage play they lifted their name from in the first place – Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi. The band have also announced a UK date at the ICA here in London on September 25th – or

17: LR ROCKETS – Renee Loves Losers (Ctrl.Alt.Del.) – New single from the now East London based Yorkshire band. The single is out on September 7th and you can catch the band in London this week at Madam JoJo’s in Soho on Tuesday 11th August.  They deal in frantic new wave pop, they deal it well –

18: SLEEPER – Mr.Megatron (Mush)   -  Back to where we started on tonight’s show and another slice of Sleeper, see track two for more details...

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
