Alvarius B / Sir Richard Bishop
Strange Fruit

Unrock here issue a very special record indeed, pairing Sun City Girls' Alan and Richard Bishop on a split 10". These figures need no introduction given their work within the celebrated avant-psych outfit in which they made their names. This release holds extra significance though, celebrating 25 years of the label.

Alvarius B
With a Beaker on the Burner and an Otter in the Oven - Vol. 3 Heathen Folklore

Alvarius B is the moniker of former Sun City Girl member Alan Bishop, formerly of Sun City Girls and now going his own way. With a Beaker on the Burner and an Otter in the Oven is a series of three albums released simultaneously, and Volume Three, sub-titled Heathen Folklore, is supposedly the most fucked-up of the three records. Vinyl LP release from Abduction.

Alvarius B
With a Beaker on the Burner and an Otter in the Oven - Vol. 2 A Mark Twain August

Alvarius B is of course Alan Bishop, formerly of Sun City Girls and now going his own way. With a Beaker on the Burner and an Otter in the Oven is a series of three albums released simultaneously, and here is Volume Two, sub-titled A Mark Twain August. Apparently it features a banjo formerly owned by Mark Twain himself, though that could be classic Bishop nonsense, who knows… On Abduction.

Alvarius B
With a Beaker on the Burner and an Otter in the Oven - Vol. 1 Natural Wonder

Vinyl release from Abduction, with an inner sleeve containing all of Alvarius’s curious lyrics.

Alvarius B vs Abdel Baqy Byro in Cairo

Alvarius B, aka the great Sun City Girl himself Alan Bishop, presents this jumbled-up collaboration with Abdel Baqy Byro (unless this person is simply an invention of Bishop, you never can tell). The city of Cairo is dripping from every pore of this record, via both field recorded snatches of city life and playful guitar sketches. Very flavoursome LP on Nashazphone.

Alvarius B
Chin Spirits

Alvarius B is, of course, a pseudonym of Alan Bishop, one of them Sun City Girls. This 10”, entitled Chin Spirits, is a bright example of the kind of half-nonsense, half-beauty those Bishop brothers excel in. First issued as a cassette on Chocolate Monk, now enjoy the vinyl version, thanks to the Unrock label.
