Product Description

9 tracks, 51 mins. Sir Richard Bishop (1/3 of the Sun City Girls) recorded this album of acoustic ephemera during his European tour in 2005, showcasing his dazzling improvised wooden guitar action. Limited edition of 700 copies on clear vinyl. We stashed some for mailorder so we actually have a few left!

By trade Sir Richard Bishop is a dealer of rare occult books and fine paper ephemera. For many in the musical cosmos, he has occasion to travel the smoke filled carnie circuit as 1/3 of the Sun City Girls medicine show. But in the twilight hours of a shadow world sensed only by few, Bishop is a dazzling unaccompanied guitarist. Fingering The Devil is a collection of tracks he lay to rest in our very own Southern Studios during his European tour last summer.

On Fingering The Devil, Bishop rides a very tall horse through a surrealist's cowboy set that's one part bruit Peckinpah muscularity and two parts illuminated Jodorowskian symbolism. A very strange place, indeed. Armed only with a single steel string wooden guitar, bare-knuckled Bishop fends off the horrors & dangers of the night with ease as he spits out glorious white robed arabesques, django inspired gypsy arcs, & latin terracotta flouishes like so many spinning tumbleweeds in a one horse town that is his alone.

Fingering The Devil is Sir Richard's follow up to his Improvika album on Locust records and third full length release after his debut on John Fahey's Revenant label.
