Note : After the LP is on our shelfs, we’re finally waiting for the 7” inch record to complete the extended edition of the album, to be able to ship the “sold-out-by-preorders” version of Road Stories.
We thank everybody for the patience and the continuous support. We’re sure the album and the the 7” are worth waiting. Happy Holidays !
The SRB/B.Orcutt - Road Stories (Kali) LP is finally in stock…..
***The first installment in Unrock’s new string wringer Saraswati Series presents two of today’s most extraordinary guitar maniacs captured on location. While Orcutt, “re-inventor of the Blues”, falls from abstraction into acoustic hardcore serenade on his wooden 4-string guitar, the Kali-inspired Bishop improvises elegantly and calmly through a feverish 17 minute variation of “Zurvan”. Limited edition of 750 copies. 180g vinyl. Includes a solid full color cardboard insert.
Until January 31st 2015 we offer a bundle containing these three fine high-quality vinyl recordings for an unbeatable price of €25. (as long as stock lasts)
Postage rates are €5.00 (Germany), €8.90 (Europe, well most countries, excluding Norway, etc.) and €17.90 (Overseas). All you have to do is to drop us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll work it out. Happy Holidays !
Rangda – Live In Krefeld 10” (UnrockEP001)
***Rangda´s reinvention of the power trio is driven by Chris Corsano´s drums but built from the intertwined guitars of Richard Bishop and Ben Chasny. Rangda´s 2010 debut created the most exciting guitar duels since Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd chopped and chiselled out Marquee Moon. 2014. (excerpt from “The Wire”) Limited edition of 500 copies.
Brothers Unconnected – Unrock The House 2xLP (UnrockLP002)
*** The album works best when the Bishops take themselves seriously as instrumentalists, with both playing acoustic guitar. Like the best of Sun City Girls’ albums these instrumentals offer a glimpse into a parallel reality. 2012. (excerpt from “The Wire”) Limited edition of 1000 copies. 1 album on black, 1 on white vinyl.
Sir Richard Bishop – The Unrock Tapes LP (UnrockLP001)
*** Almost entirely acoustic, it has many of the familiar stylistic points and covers a couple more. Once more Bishop is the consummate troubadour. He doesn’t stay anywhere long enough to wear out his welcome, but engages wherever he stops. 2012. (Excerpt from “The Wire”) Limited edition of 1000 copies. White vinyl.
Time to introduce our new “Saraswati Series”, a loose but ongoing series, focusing on string oriented performers and performances. The first fruit is at the pressing plant and will be back and shipped in November. The extra edition is only available at Unrock and limited to one (1) copy per customer. All orders must be prepaid.
Sir Richard Bishop / Bill Orcutt – Road Stories (Kali) LP+7” (UnrockLP004/extra edition)
***The first installment in Unrock’s new string wringer Saraswati Series presents two of today’s most extraordinary guitar maniacs captured on location. While Orcutt, “re-inventor of the Blues”, falls from abstraction into acoustic hardcore serenade on his wooden 4-string guitar, the Kali-inspired Bishop improvises elegantly and calmly through a feverish 17 minute variation of “Zurvan”.
Limited edition one time pressing of 750 copies. All copies have a solid cardboard insert.
The first 150 copies of “Road Stories (Kali)” are available with a numbered Split 7” by Bill & Richard. Bill’s improvisation was recorded while he was alone on stage at the Damenwartesaal with our technician Peter , right before the show. It has a mild flow and I would call it fragile. The magic of the moment is captured in full. Richard contributes a rocking version of the Sun City Girls classic “Opium Den” and his voice sounds like you never heard him sing before. The 7” has a running time of nearly 12 minutes and a full color sleeve, showing details of the album cover.
