I created a future cityscape of Los Angeles for a SCI-Arc Channel interview with Alvarius B of Sun City Girls. Check it out below.
“Ranked By David Fricke of Rolling Stone magazine in his best of 2017 column, Alvarius B.’s triple album juggernaut entitled “With a Beaker on the Burner and an Otter in the Oven,” is the latest example of his own original folks songs penned and performed unlike anything that anyone else is doing now. And as an interpreter of other people’s work, his songbook includes hundreds of cover songs from the obscure to the very familiar. This body of work is informed by an obsessive love of the singer-songwriter genre, folkloric music from beyond borders, retro Italian film soundtracks, and an extraordinary sense of humor. Over much of the past ten years, Bishop has been lurking in Cairo, composing & recording new Alvarius B. material while simultaneously establishing his own Egyptian-based band, The Invisible Hands and joining forces as a trio with Sam Shalabi and Maurice Louca to record and perform in The Dwarfs of East Agouza.”
