Nothing this week. Sometimes, they really do have it all.
This episode features not one but two Sun City Girls-adjacent projects: the mysterious Ak'chamel, The Giver of Illness, which I don't think actually involves either of the brothers Bishop, but may as well because it basically sounds like Torch of the Mystics-era SCG; and Dwarfs of East Agouza, who include Alan Bishop as a member, and whose new Middle Eastern-inflected, free jazz/avant-garde freakout The Green Dogs of Dahshur is another of my album of the year candidates. There's also the recently reissued Technodrome, by Motohiko Hamase, which is an approximation of the album Jaco Pastorius never lived to make with Jon Hassell in the early 90s.
