To my great surprise, I learned that Ace Frehley, lead guitarist of Kiss, wrote the original version of this track. The cover comes from Australian composer and multi-instrumentalist Oren Ambarchi. The track is taken from his most recent album, Audience of One, which was released on Touch Records this year.
Ambarchi has performed with John Zorn, Otomo Yoshihide, Keiji Haino, Jim O’Rourke, Sunn O)), and countless others. Ambarchi first began playing music in the ’80s as a free jazz drummer, but most of his work since then has involved experimentation with the guitar. Ambarchi also plays in Gravetemple with Stephen O’Malley of Sunn O)), and in Burial Chamber Trio with the other half of Sunn O)), Greg Anderson.
