Bill Laswell is a true legend in music history and known as the ‘man with the golden ears’. Since 1983, he has been involved in hundreds of recordings with many collaborators from all over the world. Bassist, composer and music producer - enough to say that he was the producer for suchlegendary albums like Motörhead ‎- “Orgasmatron”, Iggy Pop’s “Instinct”, Public Image Ltd - “Album” or Swans “The Burning World” to name just a few.

In 1997, Bill Laswell released his sixth solo album “City of Light” recorded in Banaras, India, and mixed in Greenpoint, NY. For this album, he invited John Balance and Peter Christopherson from COIL. Together they recorded the 13 minutes longing, epic composition “Kála”. The album also features Japanese ambient genius Tetsu Inoue, who decorated the album with its characteristic sound and acclaimed percussionist Trilok Gurtu. Together they created an amazing conceptual album full of deep drones, tabla-rhythms, and ambient collages. “City of Light” is about Banaras, a city older than history, tradition, and legends. It is Shiva's land,founded at the dawn of creation. It is India's oldest and most fabled city. The Hindus call it Kashi,the luminous... The City of Light. The album was originally released in 1997 on Belgian label Sub Rosa and is deleted for many years. This new edition – in Digipak – comes with all new artwork and booklet.

Released Early April 2018 by Infinite Fog Productions.
