Artist

Sir Richard Bishop
CURATOR:

When not working as a dealer in occult print ephemera, Sir Richard Bishop maintains a stately, world-traveling existence as 1/3 of the Sun City Girls. He also moonlights as a purveyor of solo improvisational guitar whose style can be said to be more informed by the spirit of the films of Peckinpah and Jodorowsky than any clinical axeman influence. In town for shows at Joe's Pub on May 3rd and Maxwells in Hoboken on the 4th, Bishop visits Brian in the WFMU studios for an afternoon of tying together the worlds of Morocco, the Middle East, and Morricone.

With Jack Rose and John Fahey gone, it's just Richard and Leo Kotke to bear the torch!

Who ever said Sun City Girls didn't know how to play their instruments?

Whoever said that must have been a dolt. I hadn't realised 'Sir' Richard was in the SSGirls until recently - played both separately on my show... but different roads led to the same great & distinctive music.
