Five years after Tangier Sessions, Sir
Richard Bishop, we presume, is back
from his travels around the world. With
Oneiric Formulary, he's dug deeper into his
bag of extra-musical gestures from the eternal
and unknowable, along with a few sounds
we might recognize, all transmuted for our
mortal ears' enjoyment.
The last couple of Sir Richard Bishop
releases on Drag City were genre exercises of
sorts-The Freak of Araby explored the musical legacy of late Egyptian guitarist Omar Khorshid while Tangier Sessions explored
the sound of an obscure 19th century guitar
that Rick had acquired from a mysterious
Swiss luthier The title Oneiric Formulary, may sit contrarily on the tongue-but we may refer to it as representing "a collection of dream
states"-which means we like it! With such
a lofty goal in mind and at his fingertips, Sir
Rick returns to the approach of his DC
debut, Polytheistic Fragments-a different
sound, a different instrument, for nearly every track, drawing from the music of all nations, including and especially that infamous
republic with only one person on the census
roll (initials SRB). It's got mad variety, the
kind you don't see much of anymore-an
Ed Sullivan kind of evening out, with some
spinning plates, dancing mice, and of course,
an appearance from Zippy the Chimp.
