The Count Bishops

The Count Bishops

The Count Bishops were a British rock band, formed in 1975 in London, who broke up in 1980. The Count Bishops had little commercial success, but forged an important stylistic and chronological link between the root rhythm & blues Dr. Feelgood and the proto-punk sound of Eddie and the Hot Rods; together forming the foundation of the pub-rock scene, which largely predetermined the emergence of punk rock. The group made history by in England by releasing the first record from an independent label - Chiswick Records.
