I am Chris Bishop, currently residing in the Hudson Valley with my family. I grew up in New York, Toronto and Houston, attended college in New Orleans and Colorado, and lived for some time in California, Oregon and Japan. I’ve traveled to every state of the continental U.S. except North Dakota, and a good deal of Canada as well.
I’ve been a fanatic for garage rock since high school, notably from hearing the Bondsmen and the Q65 on the Mod Monday radio show and buying LPs of the Remains and the 13th Floor Elevators at the old Venus Records. I started Garage Hangover in August of 2004 to share some of my favorite songs with friends of mine, but it’s grown into something else entirely.
I’m looking for a sponsor or grant in order to devote more time to research. Please contact me if you know of any grants or companies interested in underwriting this work.
Band members, record collectors and fans in the Hudson Valley, New York area should drop me a line.
I also will buy collections of records: 45s, LPs and 78s; especially in New York or western Massachusetts.
