• sir richard bishop / ava mendoza Ivory Tower (LP + 7", £22.95)

    The third instalment 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 amongst others. Rumour 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 the NY-Times was focused on with their recent review. An electric version of “Safe House”, a bone-dry 2015 update on “Abydos”, an eruptive outbreak from “Multiple Hallucinations” into “Black Eyed Blue” and a mild & 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. Limited edition one time pressing. 200 copies are available as an extended edition, featuring a 2-track full colour sleeve 7” inch single with exclusive songs, containing a brand new 2015 SRB track and a hot as hell solo guitar with vocals song from Ava Mendoza, directed somehow by our own Mr. Peter Koerfer. This edition is an Unrock exclusive and only available here.
