BISHOP & DAVID OLIPHANT / KARKHANA W/ NADAH EL SHAZLY, SIR RICHARD - CARTE BLANCHE (LP)


"It took more than just some time and imagination to believe that Carte Blanche, this piece of astonishing contemporary music by some of the most talented and able musicians of the international avant-circuit, could be realized. Karkhana, a highly explosive mostly Middle Eastern/Mediterranean ensemble -- Sam Shalabi, Sharif Sehnaoui, Michael Zerang, Mazen Kerbaj, Maurice Louca, Tony Elieh, Umut Caglar (members of "A" Trio, Dwarfs Of East Agouza, Konstrukt et al) -- is weaving a tapestry of sound for Egyptian songstress Nadah El Shazly's voice to slide deep into. On the other side, two grand seigneurs of underground, ex-Sun City Girls and Rangda guitar whirlwind Richard Bishop and W. David Oliphant (Maybe Mental) play it loud. Far Eastern post-industrial. Very heavy, sharp, and crystal clear. Ripe." (label info) Carte Blanche will be released as a one-time pressing. It is released as a part of Unrock's Saraswati Series. Vinyl cut by Peter Koerfer at Ivory Tower. 140 gram vinyl in extra-heavy deluxe cover, with printed cardboard insert
