Bill Orcutt is the guitarist of Miami based noise rock trio Harry Pussy and a guitar virtuoso-free improviser in his own right. There’s probably track titles there (he mentions the last track is a cover) but Orcutt plays them in such an abstract form that its impossible to tell.
No that venue isn’t a mistake, the gig was indeed staged in an opticians. Dublin has had a serious lack of a solid venue for underground experimental music to be held for quite some time now, various galleries and random spaces (like this one) host shows for a few months at a time then drop off the map. I know this kind of music is not profitable for anyone concerned, not least the venues & promoters, but the bouncing around of shows all over the place gets tiring. Since taping this show and prepping it for upload (Feb 2014) Molly & Dowlings have stopped shows and they’ve moved on to other venues already..
Here's a recording of Bill Orcutt I made back in November, I didn't think the show was particularly good but it sounds pretty good so some of you may be into his acoustic mangling stuff.
