Miami-based noise rock trio Harry Pussy were active for 5 years in the mid-’90s. They left a legacy of three influential albums and clutch of EPs. In 1998 year after they split, a slew of live recordings were released that displayed the band’s ferocity and energy. Now, A Real New England Fuck Up adds to those releases, capturing the trio at their blistering best. LP with extensive liner notes, limited to 500 copies.
Thurston Moore & John Moloney / Bishop - Orcutt - Corsano
Parallelogram A La Carte
Some serious talents of wild noisy improv are gathered together on this split album: on the A-side, the drums and feedback-guitar duo of Thurston Moore and John Moloney, and on the B-side, the power trio of Bill Orcutt, Alan Bishop and Chris Corsano! Ferocious performances from all sides. LP on Three Lobed Recordings.
Known for his free-form guitar demolitions, Bill Orcutt's latest release marks something of a sea change. Here, the lopsided virtuoso offers a record that appreciates space in a different way, letting his notes ring out so the environment around him can twist them how they like it. It's a record in which Orcutt leaves some room to be filled a la Loren Connors while still offering his frenetic jazz premonitions.
Back in the 90’s, few would have anticipated the position that electric Harry Pussy noisemaker Bill Orcutt would be in by the 2010’s: Orcutt unamplified and acoustic? But so it has come to pass, with many records now released of Bill’s intuitive improvised take on acoustic avant-blues. VDSQ - Solo Acoustic Vol. 10, recorded in a stairwell on Christmas day, is another fine example of where he’s at.
More explosive sonic encounters recorded at London’s home of experimental music, Cafe Oto. Guitarists Bill Orcutt (formerly of Harry Pussy) met phenomenal cellist Okkyung Lee last year for a first-time improvised collaboration documented in full here. Both musicians approach their instruments with fierce originality, and the new territories they find grind together wonderfully here. 500 copies on Oto’s own Otoroku label.
Two world-beating guitar toters go head to head in the first edition of Unrock’s Saraswati Series, Road Stories (Kali). Each taking a side of wax, Sir Richard Bishop and Bill Orcutt demonstrate their knack for distinctive control of the guitar. Recorded on location to capture the improvisatory talents of each musician. Out on vinyl LP from Unrock.
