ORGAN THINGS: Some new KAYO DOT, some SOLAR WIMP and How To Organise Your Life & Get Rid Of Clutter…

Tuesday things, in a rush today, no time to be here dishing out’s some signposts and link, you can do the exploring today…. ….

KAYO DOT have released a new track ahead of their next album, read more about it over at Brooklyn Vegan, here’s the track…


SOLAR WIMP? Who are they? Don’t ask me, here’s they are, came to our attention simply because they’re on the bill with the ever excellent Upsilon Acrux over at The Smell over there somewhere in California… We always make a point of checking out anyone on bills with Upsilon (or indeed Chicago’s Lovely Little Girls)



How To Organise Your Life & Get Rid Of Clutter

“A super limited run of 50 self-dubbed, hand assembled cassettes.  Recorded over the 1996 self-help classic audiobook of the same name, with passages of original audio.

In a world of throwaway internet content, this is a small attempt at making the vehicle itself have some kind of meaning. Recycled self-help will carry our music to your ears. Another artefact to lose on your untidy shelf, already covered with stuff you don’t need. As each of these will be done by hand with no professional equipment, patience will be a virtue”.



ORGAN THING: A taste of the forthcoming collaborative album by Scott Walker and Sunn O)))


4AD Records have just posted that  “Following the initial news of Soused, the collaborative record by Scott Walker and Sunn O))), fans can now hear a tantalising excerpt via a two-minute trailer.

Soused will be released on October 20th, and pre-orders for all formats (double LP, CD and digital download) are now available. The vinyl edition consists of two 180g LPs, pressed on black vinyl and housed in a heavyweight tip-on sleeve. The artwork was designed by Sunn O)))’s Stephen O’Malley, featuring photography by Gast Bouschet.

Recorded in London in early 2014 and produced by Scott Walker and long-time ally Peter Walsh with the assistance of musical director Mark Warman, Soused is a 5-track 50-minute body of work that cements both acts’ wide-reaching and otherworldly renown.

Ahd here, have some Nought from 2010

ORGAN THING: Deerhoof order breakfast and release a taste of their new album, meanwhile down by the canal…

Thing of the day?  Too many choice to order breakfast, with all this delicious earfood to choose from good lord, we do get some awful awful music cluttering up our in-box, what on earth makes you record company people and such think want any of this spoiling our day, what makes you imagine we’re going to cover any of this or inflict it on those tasteful enough read these fractured raving and droolings? Who the hell is Taylor Swift anyway? Why did you waste thirty seconds of my day with that poorly manufactured blandness just then?  Do you really like this faceless tedium you peddle at us? You surely don’t go home from work and listen to this stuff out of choice do you? Sure I know it can be a buzz working in the industry and the music business game is what you get off on rather than the actual music (or product as you like ot call call it). hang on enough of the product, here’s some music, fresh Deerhoof just emerged, an excellent breakfast choice….


The various Deerhoofs spent much of the last year creating different earfood in their various side projects: Greg Saunier hung around with Sean Lennon is Mystical Weapons; Satomi Matsuzaki played a few solo shows, including one at Philip Glass’ Philippines benefit concert; John Dieterich did things as Bad News from Houston; and Ed Rodriguez  got involved in some remix work. On November 4th, however, the band San Francisco we all know and love as Deerhoof will release their 12th studio album, La Isla Bonita. “Serving as the follow-up to 2012’s Breakup Song, the 10-track effort was produced by Nick Sylvester (formerly of Mr. Dream) and draws upon a wide array of influences, including Beck, Radiohead, The Flaming Lips, Lou Reed, Sonic Youth, and more”.


In a statement, Saunier said, “No band is an island. Felt like one sometimes, in those budgetless and obscure early days, Satomi and me locked in the basement trying to figure out how our clashing personalities and ideas could turn into a band. If we hadn’t had that crazed mid-’90s Bay Area punk scene to call home, I doubt we’d still be here to chat about a 20th anniversary. We don’t set out to create masterpieces. The Deerhoof fan is a thrill-seeker. This is the latest volley in an ongoing conversation we’ve been honored to hold for 20 years.”

The first taste of the LP comes via its lead single, “Exit Only”. After exploring the realm of electronica with Breakup Song, Deerhoof emphatically return to their roots of blitzing, occasionally gritty rock. “Drums pop like small arms fire, guitars surge like industrial-sized chainsaws, and Matsuzaki’s vocals are as deceptively childlike as ever. It’s a straight shot of saccharine-flavored dissonance, like mainlining a couple dozen Pixy Stix in one sitting”.

Right, that’s my lazy cut ‘n paste is done, you got your breakfast earfood, you got the information, we never promised anything more than that with this born again version of Organ, we certainly didn’t promise jetpacks or whoever Taylor Swift is…. Right, things to deal with, got to go see the duck (down by the canal,, Hackney, East London ), long live the good ship Deerhoof and all who choose to breakfast with her… .

ORGAN THING OF THE DAY: Hawkwind have teamed up with kingly thespian Brian Blessed for… That and some Unkles in Toy Drum and Alaric and Can Can Heads and nobody’s driving……

Do not panic.   Thing of the day? Sonic attacks? Please follow these rules…. Do not panic…
Where were we? Somewhere just past the end of the Cambridge Heath Road or Berstow, or somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, or maybe the chip shop, or was it The Hare? Somewhere near the Hare when the paint began to take hold and someone said “check out the new album from Alaric (from Oakland California)”, someone from Amebix, well one of Amebix did, or maybe they collectively did? Someone said something, something about waking up and no one driving and turn the goddam music up, my heart feels like an alligator, or something like that. And if Amebix say check it out then it probably is worth checking out, here it is, you decide…. you you you decide, yes you decide…


What did ya think? Answers on a postcard to somewhere or other, Amebix were clearly right, we’re on to checking out Toy Drum now. Who are Toy Drum?   What kind of rat bastard psychotic would play that song right now anyway, right now, at this moment? No, not that Toy Drum one, we’re talking about annoying neighbours and their midnight hammers and their appalling taste in music.  Hang on, play this scratchy itchy skronky thing at them, first, before the skronk (and the Sonic Attack), that Toy Drum thing, too many things at once…. Alaric, they’re from Oakland, aren’t most things on these pages? Killing jokes all round, you find the album on Twenty Buck Spin Records, let it suck you in, don’t let it spit you out….

Pablo Clements & James Griffith, members of UNKLE since ‘War Stories’, are to release new mini-album as TOYDRUM.  Toydrum – Distant Focus Vol. 1 is out on September 29th on Underscore Collective



Right then, that skronk that was mentioned back there…….

“Hi, Can Can Heads are a band from Finland, heavily influenced by No Wave, Skronk, Free Jazz, Hardcore Punk, all things noisy. The brand new Butter Life LP (edition of 300) was released on 03/14/2014 by Karkia Mistika Records/Verdura Records/Bottom of the Pops. You can stream it in its entirety at our bandcamp page”

thing back at them… Indeed we can and here it is right here for you to stream it as well, we do this because we can and we care, we care a lot about the bands that no one loves, or the cabbager patch kids or something like that



“Please let me know if you would need the physical LP, and I’ll send you one asap” said the message that also contained the following bits of essential information that seems ot have got all messed up with code and skratchy bits of text and yes, it could be fixed if we were of a mind to go and do it but hey, kind of fits the hit and miss nature of the sometimes satisfying sometimes not quite satisfying Can Can Heads don’t you think.And it did come with kind regards, and made us think of Dog Face Hermans and Blurt and Skree and…. …
cancanheadsCan Can Heads is a nest of contradictions, twists and surprises. It’s violent music with a gentle heart. The band’s front man doesn’t sing. Or play an instrument. He occupies the space on stage where a lead singer usually resides. And gyrates. Generally, the bass is as close as the band gets to a lead instrument. The music is convulsive and jerky, but manages to reach a hypnotic state. It’s like tribal music made by a quintet consisting of misfits and contrarians. Hailing from a barn in the flood-prone flatlands of Bothnia in western Finland, Can Can Heads has been kicking against the pricks for over two decades. They’ve managed to avoid all contact with the roaming searchlights of media attention by skulking from one margin to another: punk, no wave, free jazz, noise. All this goes into a blender and out comes something the band itself tends to call “Ramones meets Albert Ayler”. Others might call it skronk. Butter Life is not smooth and it’s not creamy. It sizzles and scrapes, raking its lo-fi nails from your scapula down to the small of your back. (Arttu Tolonen)” With kind regards, Tomi Nuotio, Helsinki, Finland.
Fractured noise, we like fractured noise, raw can can heads  Whatever happened to that Canhead lot? They were good, goodness me, fish and chips, get the flip away from mine, remember now, think only of yourself, do not panic….. a new sonic attack is incoming, the headline said “Hawkwind launch a Sonic Attack on the singles chart with a little help from Brian Blessed”, can that be right? is this another Orsen Walls with Manowar moment? Brian Bleedin’ Blessed? You can’t avoided the big-voiced cheese merchant, shout out the phone book….
“It’s the musical collaboration we never knew we needed, until now! Legendary space rockers HAWKWIND have teamed up with kingly thespian Brian Blessed for a brand new single version of ‘Sonic Attack!’ so claims someone over at Cherry Red Records

“When Hawkwind decided to recreate their classic Space Ritual show of 1972, for one night only, at the London’s Shepherds Bush Empire in February 2014, the venerable group donated all proceeds to animal charities including Team Badger – of which Brian Blessed is a patron. It was a gig that set the wheels in motion for a storming new partnership”.

The accompanying video was created by long time Hawkwind artist Martin McGuiness.

“This powerful addition to the Hawkwind canon is available (via Cherry Red) from 1st September 2014″. championed the shouty press release, and yes indeed, nothing wrong with yet another sonic attack to added to the mountains of versions of already released. Here it is in 1972 without what some might say was too much ham….

We’re out of here, nobody’s driving…..

ORGAN THINGS: Semi skinned Bantha Milk? Down there on the shelf

Meanwhile, down by the canal, the hundred pieces are still being put out, started at Hackney WickED and on it goes goes until the last one hits the street at the end of the month….


Back in May we asked about the wine…  ORGAN THINGS? Who’s driving? Amebix? Stig, Morella? Wolves in the Throne Room, who labelled that wine? Bitter clowns tears with a hint of what?  And while we do have a strong no Star War policy around here…..

ID-DOM at the Whitecross Street Party

ID-DOM at the Whitecross Street Party

“With the modest success of a few of our supermarket subversions recently my brain seems to have jumped onto the whole fake ad/culture jamming bandwagon and now it seems I can’t go to the shop without coming up with some new form of contrived nonsense. And today’s offering is a pretty good case in point.

A long time ago in a galaxy far away I was strutting the aisles of my local supermarket trying to locate something they undoubtedly didn’t have when my eye chances upon the full fat milk with the blue lid. And that was all I needed to connect blue and milk and come up with the blue milk from Star Wars called bantha milk. We even see Luke Skywalker pour himself a glass in Star Wars whilst he’s living with his aunt and uncle at their moisture farm in Tatooine.

That was all I needed in the way of a plan so went home and set to work. A couple of parsecs later and I had my label good to go – complete with interview with their sand person dairy farmer on Tatooine.

I can already see the print and TV advertising that would go alongside this new miracle food with a tag line along the lines of “With a few glasses of semi-skimmed bantha in you a day you’ll be strong enough to pull the ears off a gundark in no time.” In fact, that’s given me an idea…

Cheers id-iom


And while we’re here messing with minds, let us say those Stranglers never sound so good as they did here.
