The third installment in Unrock's string-related Saraswati Series brings Sun City Girls guitarist Sir Richard Bishop together with NY avant guitarist Ava Mendoza for an album of twisted takes on the blues, improv, and unusual music history.
Bishop, Sir Richard / Ava Mendoza
Ivory Tower (Hanuman) [VINYL]
Released in: Netherlands
"The third installment in Unrock's string-related Saraswati Series features Grandseigneur Richard Bishop performing with his rough charm and maximum elegance, along with one of the hottest kick-ass avant-guitar players around, the now-Brooklyn-based Ava Mendoza. Besides her work in Unnatural Ways, she improvises constantly on NY's avant-stages along with Elliott Sharp, Jim Black, William Winant, Paul Flaherty, Tim Dahl, and others. Rumor has it that she was even in Caroliner.
Recorded in full at Ivory Tower (Unrock Headquarters), the Sir opens up stepping deep into music history (as we know it), messing carefully around with the mysterious track that the New York Times focused on in their 2014 review of one of his live performances. An electric version of "Safe House," a bone-dry 2015 update on "Abyss," an eruptive outbreak from "Multiple Hallucination" into "Black Eyed Blue," and a mild and mellow reflection ("Ivory Tower"). Miss Mendoza is wild at heart and gives you the boot with what she's best at: thunderous, eruptive, twisted improvisations and perfect songs. Shadowtrapping."-Unrock
