This show was a bit of a commemoration of the very first Other Rock Show that I presented as a one-off Clear Spot on Resonance all the way back in October 2002. That show had these tracks from 5UUs, Dilliger Escape Plan, Nought, Cardiacs, Lapsus Linguae and Ruins, amongst others. Great to intersperse Corima, Buttonhead and Feast of the Epiphany, all new inspiration to the ORS this year, and a work from Kayo Dot who didn’t exist (except maybe as an incarnation of maudlin Of The Well) back then!

Normal Love

Normal Love – They are from Brooklyn. They’ve been around since 2005, taking a few years off to form some sort of chrysalis to mutate in. They may well have everything you ever need from an avant-weirdass outfit.

Here’s the track I played: The Signal Is Coming From Pittsburg pt 1
