BIO & MUSIC
The Vancouver based street punk band Bishops Green was formed in spring of 2011. The group is comprised of friends who hold a wide variety of musical influences and tastes.
Their melodic style of old-school punk draws creative influences from European groups like Blitz, The Clash, Stiff Little Fingers, Cock Sparrer, the Partisans and Leatherface and to hardcore acts from the U.S. like Naked Raygun and Minor Threat. Not to mention the noticeable connection between Bishops Green to bands like Alternate Action, Subway Thugs and the Lancasters.
Bishops Green’s music is raw and energetic with a style firmly embedded in the historic roots of street punk and Oi!. All of the members of Bishops Green have been playing in bands together since the ’90s and this history, combined with the groups ability to draw from different punk genres, enables the creation of a catchy sing-along sound that will make sure that any audience feels like they are part of the show!
