Bill Orcutt

T. Horn pulled my coat to this cat. Don't know much about him. He was in the Florida band Harry Pussy, whom I've never heard. To these feedback-scorched ears, he sounds like a blues-drenched Derek Bailey who's trying to pull the strings off his guitar with a very strong and active right hand. (Note that he plays a guitar with only four strings -- the low E and the top three -- and observe the condition of that guitar's face.) Beautiful, visceral stuff that for some reason reminds me of the Japanese freak-folksinger Kan Mikami, although it sounds nothing like him. Must investigate further.
