And now for something completly different.....
Editions Mego is suitably chuffed announce a CD reissue of Bill Orcuttâ€™s acoustic hardcore blues stormer â€˜A New Way To Pay Old Debtsâ€™, previously released on Palilalia in 2009. For many one of the highlight of recent years with its unique visionary take of solo guitar playing.
At the heart of Orcuttâ€™s sound is a vintage acoustic Kay guitar equipped with a DeArmond pickup. After the neck was broken and subsequently repaired, the guitar was downtuned so as to withstand the tension of the strings, and played with the A and D strings removed.
This all lends itsellf to an intense set of raw, blues-influenced songs that sound heavier than most of the guitar records in your collection put together!!
In addtion to the orginal album this CD reissue contain 2 tracks from the High Waisted 7â€ (also previously relased on Palialia), as well as 4 unreleassed tracks.
