The Freak of Araby is the new guitar action from Sun City Girls virtuoso Sir Richard Bishop. Any album that makes me want to do foreign dancing is alright by me and all I can think about at the moment is getting up and doing some sort of mental tango-y flamencoizing all over the office, maybe wearing some tassles on my nips and wielding a sexual eye glint. I know it's supposed to be all Middle Eastern and that but it really reminds me of tributes to traditional Hispanic guitar like Marc Ribot's Prosthetic Cubans stuff.. I guess classical styles are going to have plenty of things in common across the globe. We're all getting a heavy Morricone feel from quite a few of the tunes, plus maybe even a bit of The Shadows ('Apache' style) on occasion - excellent stuff and far more accessible than his usual!
