Boomkat Product Review:
Sir Richard Bishop (Sun City Girls) and Bill Orcut make for a riveting set of contrasts between their styles on the 1st instalment of Unrock’s Saraswati Series, which has since issued a string of releases from mould breakers and makers such as Eyvind Kang, Tashi Dorji, Ava Mendoza and Sam Shalabi.
Bishop unfurls 20 minutes of spellbinding improvised pan-blues instrumental narrative to leave you either floating or on the edge of your seat with Shades Of Zurvan on the Kali side.
That’s sharply contrasted with Harry Pussy guy Bill Orcutt’s handful of shorter, jagged piece on the Saraswati side, regaling ragged tales of debauchery, astrophysics and geology encrypted into his digit-slicing chops and glossolalic keen. Seriously, how has this guy got any fingers left? Or did he have spare ones to start with?
