Like his younger brother Richard, Alan Bishop's musical career has taken a thrilling number of twist and turns. The brothers Bishop first came to the world's attention via their work in Sun City Girls, a group that spent more than 25 years daring listeners to keep up with their attempts to rewrite the code of jazz, rock, and world music. After the trio came to a quiet end with the passing of drummer Charles Gocher in 2007, Alan Bishop put his attention toward capturing the sounds of Asian, African, and South American artists via his label Sublime Frequencies, and recording acid-tongued blues and folk under the name Alvarius B. His most recent effort, If You Don't Like It... Don't!—a Record Store Day release in collaboration with Richard—crystallizes his approach, with steely, slashing acoustic guitar work that feels almost threatening in its power and fury. ROBERT HAM
