Sir Richard Bishop + Robert Millis + Ben Von Wildenhaus says
Richard Bishop is an experimental guitarist whose improvisations and compositions often reflect the shadow worlds of India, the Middle East, North Africa, and other points along the Gypsy trail.

Richard is perhaps best known as a founding member (along with brother Alan Bishop) of experimental ethnic-improv pioneers and underground tricksters Sun City Girls, who for nearly 30 years have produced an extensive discography of over 50 full length albums, 20 one-hour cassettes and a dozen 7” records. Sun City Girls formed in 1981 after the Bishop brothers' stint in the group Paris 1942 which also featured J. Akkari and former Velvet Underground drummer Moe Tucker.

Rick Bishop picked up a new guitar in Switzerland, and by the time he got to Tangier, these songs fell out! Of the moment and in and out of time…

Robert Millis is a founding member of Climax Golden Twins and AFCGT, a solo artist, and a frequent contributor to the Sublime Frequencies label. He spent 2012-2013 as a Senior Fulbright Research Scholar in India studying Indian music and sound art. Imagine Pete Seeger trying to cover Revolution 9 by the Beatles.

With guitar, sine wave generator, and voice Wildenhaus brings together Egyptian cinema music, Berber desert guitar, American folk melody, and film noir score material for a vivid stroll through evocative historical styles and laconic moods.

His second record, II (out on vinyl March 10th, 2015 and digital April 21st, 2015), written and recorded in New York City with his Professional Band, is a mirror record – meaning that side two is a mirror image of side one, physically, thematically, and melodically. The song breaks in the grooves on side one look identical to those on side two. Side one features the Brooklyn vocalist Clara Kennedy, and side two features the vocals of Scott Matthew (of John Cameron Mitchell’s Shortbus).
