Sir Richard Bishop & W. David Oliphant / Karkhana With Nadah El Shazly - Carte Blanche (LP)

Ships In 7-9 Business Days
It took more than only some time and the ability of imagination to believe that Carte Blanche, this piece of extremely exciting and astonishing contemporary music, played by some of the most talented and able musicians of the international avant-circuit, could be realized. Karkhana, a highly explosive mostly Middle Eastern/Mediterranean ensemble comprised of Sam Shalabi (Land Of Kush, Shalabi Effect, Dwarfs Of East Agouza), Sharif Sehnaoui ("A"Trio), Michael Zerang (Peter Brötzmann, Hamid Drake, Jaap Blonk, Ken Vandermark), Mazen Kerbaj ("A"Trio), Maurice Louca (Dwarfs Of East Agouza), Tony Elieh, and Umut Caglar(Konstrukt) is rolling out a carpet of sound for Egyptian songstress Nadah El Shazly's voice to dip deep into it. On the other side, two grand seigneurs of the underground, ex-Sun City Girls and Rangda guitar wizard Sir Richard Bishop and David Oliphant play it loud. Drone-ish in a way, but very heavy, sharp and crystal clear. Ripe. Carte Blanche will be released as a one-time pressing. Vinyl cut by Peter Koerfer at Ivory Tower. Extra-heavy deluxe cover, printed cardboard insert.

Order Processing Time

Online orders are processed within *3-4 business days or *7-9 business days depending on availability.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our shipping and processing times have been extended. Please note, we are still shipping and attending to customer service inquiries as per usual. Delays in supply chain, shorter fulfillment schedules, as well as extended processing from USPS have forced these delays for the time being. Thank you for your patience and business as we navigate these difficult times!

Order processing time is separate from shipping time requested. 


We try and offer as many upcoming projects available for pre-order when the releases have moved into production. However, due to the nature of manufacturing and production, pre-order dates may change. If your pre-ordered items are holding your package from arriving please email us with a request to ship the in-stock items and pre-orders when they become available. 

If your order contains pre-order items we will hold the package until all titles are available to ship. Please specify in the comments section of the checkout if you would like to:  a) hold your entire order until it can be entirely fulfilled or, b) have the in-stock items shipped immediately and the pre-ordered items ship when available. Please note that option B may require additional shipping charges as multiple packages will be shipped.
