Sir Richard Bishop on WNYC
Check out this killer solo performance from Sir Richard Bishop at this music cafe called Zebulon in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
False Flag, the debut album from his new band Rangda alongside Six Organs of Admittance mastermind Ben Chasny and ocassional Sunburned Hand of the Man drummer Chris Corsano, is definitely one of the best albums of 2010, something of which any fan of the electric guitar should take note.
Also available is the newly released Funeral Miriachi, the final LP of recorded material from Bishop's primary band, the Sun City Girls, just before the untimely death of drummer Charles Gocher in February of 2007 following a long battle with cancer. Its a fitting capper to a career that spans nearly 30 years and over 70 different releases.
Get both of these albums at your local record store.
