Although amounting to bit more when compared to a footnote in the first days of British punk rock, the Count number Bishops were an excellent, lively, R&B-based band with the capacity of kicking away a brutal racket of noise that sounded such as a grimier version of seminal United kingdom R&B revivalists Dr. Feelgood. Originally fronted by journeyman American vocalist Mike Spencer, the Count number Bishops’ 1975 debut EP, Speedball, released on Ted Carroll’s great Chiswick Information, was a straight-ahead cut of R&B that highlighted the spooky, exhilarating “Teach, Train.” Amazingly, the music group unceremoniously dumped Spencer and documented their self-titled debut with fellow Englishman Dave Tice, who acquired a voice therefore gruff it sounded as if he gargled with surface cup. A ripsnorting live record implemented (by this time around they had slipped “Count number” off their name), nonetheless it was apparent that the music group was merely treading drinking water. By 1979, the completely mediocre Cross Slashes premiered to open public apathy, guitarist Zenon de Fleur was wiped out in an automobile wreck, and business lead guitarist Johnny Electric guitar installed with Dr. Feelgood. The Bishops known as it a profession.
