The Invisible Hands - The Big Minute LP
"Years in the making amidst multiple other projects, the third album by The Invisible Hands has finally seen the light of day. In 2014, just after releasing their second album Teslam, The Invisible Hands met to begin recording their third album. But there was a problem: Alan Bishop had dozens of new songs to record and a slow-motion reality bi-product of this dilemma was that one new album became several new albums. Three of those were released under Bishop's Alvarius B. moniker (With a Beaker on the Burner and an Otter in the Oven) in November of 2017. Although that triple LP featured many additional musicians, it was essentially part of a grander Invisible Hands project which began morphing into several new directions. Between October of 2014 and January of 2020, nearly 100 songs were recorded by various forms of the group. Many tracks have remained unreleased or unfinished. Final post-production was completed on The Big Minute in late 2022 and it features the premier studio versions of several original songs and most of the covers from the band's live repertoire (including 'Dirty Angels' by Ennio Morricone, 'Watchin' You' by Brainticket, and 'Black Orchid' by Sun City Girls). Now, almost nine years after the release of their second album, Teslam, you can finally listen to the official third album from the only folk-psychedelic-rock band to ever hail from Egypt." Limited edition LP release of 500 copies with insert text and photos.
