- Baroque Primitiva by Alvarius B
9/10 Ant Staff review, 12 May 2011
Alvarius B is Alan Bishop from the Sun City Girls and he's been knocking around doing stuff for donkeys years now. Baroque Primitiva is his 6th album which came out on Poon Village on vinyl a while back but sold out mega quick and here's a deluxe CD reissue packaged in a hardback sleeve with a 32 page book. The cover features loads of ladies in a circle with their minges out and the booklet features even more minge shots and I think there's possibly some side boob for the pervs amongst you. Filth aside (and I'm sure there's a genuine reason for this vast parade of flesh) this album is very easy to get to grips with. You'd think it'd be hard going it being a SCG project and they're not always the easiest of listens but the songs are mainly done in a stripped back 'man and guitar' style with the odd bit of percussion. There's a strangely enjoyable cover of You Only Live Twice on there which bizarrely works as does the cover of God Only Knows. The songs are recorded in a part lofi/ part hifi way which leaves them polished yet fuzzy. I'm enjoying that aspect tremendously. Overall it's the songs that win here and I can see why it's been treated with such lavish attention. Lovely!
