more info about Brian John Mitchell's Remora:

Remora began in 1996 with a web of cassette releases (Anaaron, Acroyer, Amerse, Eneded, Cemented in Stone, Anadia, Ambient Drones for One Guitar) that utilized the guitar to create ambient walls of sound, rather than melodic passages. These releases were recorded at home during time off from work & other responsibilities. In recent years, Remora has shifted from pure guitar noise into songs incorporating the sounds discovered over the time spent exploiting the use of effects.

2000 marked Remora's first works done in standard recording sessions resulting in the more cohesive releases of the album Some Past's Future & the EP Some Future's Past recorded in bed room studios in New Jersey & Minneapolis as well as Raleigh, NC.

2002 was the year Remora took an excursion from effect pedals for a twelve-string acoustic guitar to record The Alcohol EPs.

In 2003 Remora toured northern Europe with Kobi & a recording of a live show in Oslo was eventually released by Morc.

2005 marked the release of Enamored, Remora's first full length in four years. It’s post-apocalyptic pop music. Love songs from a revolutionary ready to abandon his war grasping for hope. Lyrically inspired by pulp sci-fi from the 1970’s, songs like “Volcana,” “Champion,” “Kill My Way Out of Here,” & “Out of Air” paint portraits of love being the same after the crash of society while struggling to stay alive as it is now & as it was 3,000 years ago. Also in 2005 Remora recorded Reversion, an EP reflecting back to the earlier guitar experiments in support of a Pacific Northwest tour with Rollerball & Six Foot Sloth.

2007 showed Remora taking an excursion from guitar altogether with the release of songs i sing, a collection of acapella songs.

In 2008 Remora recorded the collaborative album Clear Field with northern valentine & slicnaton & returned to the pure drone roots with Ensoulment a 70 minute long solo guitar piece.

In 2009 Remora released the album Derivative that collects songs based on hit songs by Hefner, Warrior Soul, Journey, Pere Ubu, Bob Dylan, Joe Jackson, Blue Oyster Cult, & Joy Division.

Remora has a project called “Remora Prime” where people perform songs from the Remora live set locally. Download the word document songbook here.

Remora is currently working on two top secret themed EPs as well as another full length album.
