Albums of the year: #14

SIR RICHARD BISHOP: Polytheistic Fragments

Former Sun City Girl Richard Bishop released two albums this year. While My Guitar Violently Bleeds is a collection of three lengthy tracks and currently sits on my ‘wanted’ list. Polytheistic Fragments, with one exception, concentrates on shorter pieces and contains a wilfully eclectic jumble of styles that gel surprisingly well. The eleven (predominantly) guitar instrumentals veer from blues to surf, rock, folk and raga. It must have been a lot of fun to play – it’s certainly a lot of fun to listen to, and sounds fresh every play.
