Sunn Trio

OK, first thing’s first: Sunn Trio is nothing to do with Sunn O))), so bad luck if you were after some drone metal. But hold up! Fans of out-there music might well love this LP by Joel Robinson’s group Sunn Trio too, being as it is a desert-hazed trip of experimental, Arab-influenced wild sound. Fayrus is, appropriately, released by the Unrock label.

Alvarius B / Sir Richard Bishop
Strange Fruit

Unrock here issue a very special record indeed, pairing Sun City Girls' Alan and Richard Bishop on a split 10". These figures need no introduction given their work within the celebrated avant-psych outfit in which they made their names. This release holds extra significance though, celebrating 25 years of the label.

Sir Richard Bishop / Ava Mendoza
Ivory Tower (Hanuman)

On this limited vinyl split LP, Sun City Girls icon Sir Richard Bishop plays alongside another avant-garde guitarist, Ava Mendoza. Mendoza is a committed improvisor, rooted in wild and noisy punk experimentation and Bishop is the scene statesman who hasn’t forgotten how to freak out. They take a side each and the results, as recorded on Ivory Tower (Hanuman), are rich, abrasive and strange solo guitar playing.

Alan Bishop & Sam Shalabi
Mother Of All Sinners

Sam Shalabi divides his time between Montreal and Cairo. A prolific collaborator, he’s been perhaps most widely heard at the helm of Shalabi Effect or with A Silver Mt. Zion. Here he delivers a dreamy, side-long oud improvisation, and goes electric for a jam with Sun City Girl Alan Bishop (aka Alvarius B.) on vocals and sax. Prime east-meets-west vibes from two longtime itinerant souls.

"A" Trio with Alan Bishop
Burj Al Iman

Sun City Girls legend Alan Bishop joins in with the Lebanese A Trio for this Beirut session. Burj Al Iman has 3 smoky improvisations and original takes on a traditional American folk tune and an old Sun City Girls number. A Trio are excellent at whipping up droning atmospheres behind Bishop’s vocals and finger-picked guitar. 500 LP copies on Unrock.

Alvarius B
Chin Spirits

Alvarius B is, of course, a pseudonym of Alan Bishop, one of them Sun City Girls. This 10”, entitled Chin Spirits, is a bright example of the kind of half-nonsense, half-beauty those Bishop brothers excel in. First issued as a cassette on Chocolate Monk, now enjoy the vinyl version, thanks to the Unrock label.
