Sir Richard Bishop

| $10

Richard Bishop was born in Saginaw, Michigan in 1960. He is best known for his 26 year involvement with the band Sun City Girls (1981-2007) and as an experimental solo guitarist whose work often reflects the shadow worlds of India, the Middle East, North Africa, and other points along the Gypsy trail.

In 2010, Bishop joined forces with fellow guitarist Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance) and drummer extraordinaire Chris Corsano to create the group Rangda. Since then, three full length Rangda releases have been issued by Drag City (False Flag [2010], Formerly Extinct [2012], and The Heretic’s Bargain [2016]), with additional LPs on Unrock and Ba Da Bing! Records.
