Another waaaaaaay out there AVANT mindfuck from Scott Walker.
"Scott began writing new material around 2009 recording it sporadically over the following three years. The end result is Bish Bosch
, a tauter but more colourful experience than previous record The Drift
, with greater emphasis on processed, abrasive guitars, digital keyboards and thick silences.
Aided again by co-producer Peter Walsh and joined by a regular core
of musicians, Ian Thomas (drums), Hugh Burns (guitar), James Stevenson
(guitar), Alasdair Malloy (percussion) and John Giblin (bass). Musical
director Mark Warman also played a prominent role, both as conductor and
keyboardist, while guests include trumpeter Guy Barker and pedal steel
guitarist BJ Cole, who worked on three of Scott’s mid-seventies LPs. For
tracks 'SDSS1416+13B (Zercon, A Flagpole Sitter)', ‘Dimple’ and ‘Corps
de Blah’, Scott drafted in an orchestra, recording them in The Hall at
Air Studios last November. For the cover art, Scott worked closely with
painter Ben Farquharson and designer Philip Laslett." - 4AD Records
