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, whileÂ guests include trumpeter Guy Barker and pedal steel
guitarist BJ Cole, who worked on three of Scottâ€™s mid-seventies LPs. For
tracks 'SDSS1416+13B (Zercon, A Flagpole Sitter)', â€˜Dimpleâ€™ and â€˜Corps
de Blahâ€™, Scott drafted in an orchestra, recording them in The Hall at
Air Studios last November.Â For the cover art, Scott worked closely with
painter Ben Farquharson and designer Philip Laslett." - 4AD Records
