1. From Chocolate Monk

    Bill Orcutt - Daddy’s Got A Spice Rack Cassette


    Orcutt serves up more of his raw, wild & beautiful guitar grunk, but as always he has some new to add into the mix, something different, this time he includes several pieces of text based vocal gibber, which sits real fine around these parts. Interspersed text and string pieces make for a weird and wonderful tape. Honoured to have the man back on Chocolate Monk.

    Edition of 60.

  2. From Lucky Peach Record Club :

    “Bill Orcutt plays Turkey in the Straw on a one-sided 45rpm 7-inch record in creamsicle-ish vinyl. (Some records are yellow, some are white, most are in between. We won’t tell you what color(s) yours will be because that would ruin the surprise.) Full color jacket designed by John Gall.

    Orcutt is known for his work in Harry Pussy, a squall for which there was no precedent and to which there is no antecedent, or for his recent and often shoeless acoustic guitar work.

    On his record A History of Everyone (Editions Mego), Orcutt turns primordial tunes inside out on his four-string guitar. When Richard Parks proposed his essay about the minstrel show origins of the West Coast’s ice cream truck song for the Street Food issue, the idea to ask Orcutt to record it (as well as to start this record thing) was born.”

  10. "In a stellar interview with No-Neck Blues Band’s Keith Connolly, the former Harry Pussy guitarist essentially spells out his M.O.: “My desire to do non-blues material owes a lot to reading [Elijah Wald’s book on Robert Johnson, Escaping the Delta] and realizing that what we think of as the blues is a fiction and just how messed up our ideas about authenticity are.” Since his return to music a few years ago as a slack-tuned, four-string wildman, Bill Orcutt has reinvigorated and befuddled our ideas about the guitar. And on A History of Every One, he takes novelty songs, work hollers, Disney tunes and hymns, and skewers them to his skittering, frenzied style. A History of Every One forces us to question what we know of these original melodies and intents, yet teases out the phrases we often miss in shards and slides.”

    Lars Gotrich writing about "A History of Every One" on NPR.org
