Alavarius B. [Alan Bishop of Sun City Girls] / Fat Gray Cat

Alan Bishop (aka Alvarius B.) is a founding member of Arizona’s avant-garde and genre-defying SUN CITY GIRLS, whose career spans 27 years and over 50 releases. His work in Sun City Girls, with Richard Bishop and Charles Gocher, alone stands as a testament to his fearless exploration of the outer reaches of improvisation and composition. From their telepathic free jazz/post rock psychedelic trio roots, to sprawling radio broadcasts incorporating noise, Italian pop, and sound collage, to gorgeous outer-national Arabic and Asian-inspired folk music, the group maintained their singular and uncompromising path from inception.

And as Alvarius B., Bishop has penned hundreds of his own original folk songs in a primitive “out” style that is unlike anything that anyone else is doing now. This body of work is informed by an obsessive love of psychedelic rock, free jazz, exotic music from beyond borders, Italian film soundtracks, and an extraordinary sense of humor.
