Formerly the guitarist for the legendary Sun City Girls, Richard Bishop released his first solo record (Salvador Kali) in 1998 on John Fahey’s esteemed Revenant label under the moniker SIR RICHARD BISHOP. Since then he has released albums on a variety of labels: Improvika, Elektronika Demonika, and While My Guitar Violently Bleeds (Locust Music), Fingering the Devil (Southern Records UK), Polytheistic Fragments and The Freak of Araby (Drag City), Hypostasis: A Work in Three Parts (VDSQ Solo Acoustic Series), and many more. His most recent LP, The Tangier Session, is now available on Drag City.

KARK is a massive free ensemble from Louisville which  features a revolving cast of over 50 musicians including members of Sapat, Valley of Ashes, Virgin Eye Blood Brothers, Son of Earth, Taiwan Death and The Belgian Waffles. Their debut record The Hermit (HP Cycle, 2007) consists of three extended pieces that offer spaciously abstract atmospheres as well as moments of righteous cacophony. Utilizing a multitude of brass, reeds and percussion the album careens through numerous passages where intricate harmonics are created from the densely layered sounds. When the full force of the ensemble is unleashed individual elements appear and quickly recede into the squall. As the music nearly becomes unhinged, the sound disintegrates into a Godzilla-like rockist thud propelled by the rhythm section and soaring horns before drifting to a sparse conclusion.

ROBERT MILLIS has been a member of the lauded underground bands Climax Golden Twins and AFCGT, a solo artist, and a frequent contributor to the Sublime Frequencies label. He has scored long and short films, created sound installations, produced and designed audio projects, and released many LPs and CDs, including the heralded Victrola Favorites book and compilation released on Dust-to-Digital in 2008. MILLIS says his work “veers haphazardly between sound art, music concrete, instrumental, improv, field recording, song and collage. I have a deep interest in folk and traditional music, so imagine Pete Seeger trying to cover Revolution 9 by the Beatles.”

Formerly the guitarist for the legendary Sun City Girls, Richard Bishop released his first solo record (Salvador Kali) in 1998 on John Fahey’s esteemed Revenant label under the moniker SIR RICHARD BISHOP. Since then he has released albums on a variety of labels: Improvika, Elektronika Demonika, and While My Guitar Violently Bleeds (Locust Music), Fingering the Devil (Southern Records, UK), Polytheistic Fragments and The Freak of Araby (Drag City), and many more. His most recent LP, Hypostasis: A Work in Three Parts, is now available through the VDSQ label as part of their Solo Acoustic Series. This appearance marks his first time back in Louisville in over five years!

A Bhutanese guitarist now residing in Asheville, NC, TASHI DORJI makes meticulously crafted sounds that conjure spirits, wrestle demons, and tame wild beasts. As beautiful as they are cerebral, his acoustic works are reminiscent of Derek Bailey’s free improvisations, flamenco and John Fahey’s Americana.

Listen to and watch an excerpt from “Blue 12″ by TASHI DORJI here:

For the past decade PETE FOSCO has been exploring and celebrating the sonic potential of amplified electric guitars and the imaginary worlds they create. He graduated from the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati in 2004 with a BFA in Electronic Media Production. Since then his solo and collaborative work has been released by labels such as Digitalis Recordings, Reverb Worship, Holy Cheever Church, Gift Tapes, Dead Pilot, Calypso Hum, and the Greenup Industries imprint that he runs from home with his wife Heather. He has toured throughout the Midwest and Northeast United States, and in Iceland. He has shared bills with many of his long-time inspirations and heroes including Charalambides, MV+EE, Six Organs of Admittance, Baby Dee, C. Spencer Yeh, Byron Westbrook, Barn Owl, Circuit des Yeux, Caboladies, Metal Rouge, and many others. His compositions are usually at least partially if not mostly improvised, blending extended and traditional guitar techniques and drawing equal inspiration from classic 90s psychedelia like Flying Saucer Attack and Spiritualized, film soundtracks, and many varieties of free-form, improvised and sacred musics. FOSCO is a native of Cincinnati, OH and currently resides in Covington, KY.
