Title: Dulce (Original Soundtrack Recording)
Format: CD
Label: Abduction
Country: USA
Price: $15.50
"Originally released as a limited edition LP of 1000 copies in 1998, this is another mysterious soundtrack work by Sun City Girls, featuring guest appearances by Eyvind Kang, The Ruins and Jesse Paul Miller. The music flips back and forth from melodic and reflective themes to shards of noise and collective improvisation. Throw in some clarinet lounge music and spooked-out drama and you have the backdrop to a film that was never completed, explained further here from the original liner notes by Alan Bishop: "A nervous, stuttering Japanese gentleman phones me in the Fall of 1995 requesting soundtrack services from Sun City Girls for his new film project about a secret underground alien base in New Mexico most commonly referred to as Dulce. The real kick for us came when our new Japanese friend finally announced his allegiance to the esoteric Aum Shinrikyo group most famous for the sarin gas poisoning in a Tokyo subway not long ago. He also professed to be a former associate of Aum technical minister Hideo Murai who was killed by a Korean hitman in April of 1995. Murai joined the Aum priesthood in 1986, becoming the head of its science unit focusing on the current state of electromagnetic weapons development including EM beams using lasers and plasma. We flew to Japan to perform a few shows in April of 1996 and a clandestine meeting was arranged with our mysterious director friend on one of our days off in the electronics district of Osaka which happened to be less than a mile from where we were staying. So Doctor Gocher and I pretended to take a souvenir-gathering stroll down the hill and met Hachiro Maki (a pseudonym, Im sure) nearby in a temple courtyard. After thirty minutes of reviewing rough cuts on his swivel-screen Hi-8 camera and discussing the necessity of anonymity in todays international fast lane, we were one million yen richer with an 8mm tape in my back pocket. Havent heard from him since..." --Alan Bishop, 1998.

Title: Eye Mohini: Sun City Girls Singles Vol. 3
Format: CD
Label: Abduction
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Volume 3 in the series of Sun City Girls singles, compilations, and rare tracks, consists of material recorded between the mid-1980s and early 1990s. Much of this collection reflects the Arabic guitar instrumental and acoustic pseudo-Asian vocal folk styles of the band from the period when they recorded relentlessly. The 14 cuts vary wildly in scope yet maintain a consistent listening experience throughout, bridging a wide gap between the bands second full-length LP Grotto of Miracles (Track 3 -- "Gum Arabic" -- being the only true outtake from that recording session) in 1986 and the 1993 launch of the groups Abduction label after the band relocated from Phoenix to Seattle. All four tracks from the Eye Mohini single as well as all six tracks from the Borungku Si Derita double single are included here, the latter featuring a vicious rehearsal version of Esoterica of Abyssynia with a rare captured occurrence of both Bishop brothers playing electric guitars. The remaining two tracks from Three Fake Female Orgasms double single not included on Volume 2 of this series are present with the extremely rare studio version of "Kickin the Dragon" from a triple 7" box set released by an obscure Bay Area label in 1994. The disc is rounded out by a 10-minute live track from the Heinz Afterworld Lounge in Oakland from 1992 where SCG closed the show with a heavy and ecstatic version of "The Flower" from their Torch of the Mystics LP. As in the previous two volumes of this series, this CD is sequenced to play as a full album and is an excellent entry point for the non-initiated into a band that produced as diverse and intimidating a back catalog as any other entity in modern music." -Abduction.

Title: Funeral Mariachi
Format: LP
Label: Abduction
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"In stunning fashion, Sun City Girls final studio record caps a 27-year run for what many hail as the most bizarre, eclectic and provocative musical trio ever assembled. From the delirious intro of "Bens Radio" to the final drum crash of the title track, Funeral Mariachi delivers 11 well-crafted gems which display the refined studio production side of SCG shrouded in that otherworldly glow which has always separated the group from their contemporaries. Beyond the gorgeous folk and vocal styles which drive the album, there is a heavy retro Italian cinema influence, Arabic and Indonesian references, and a ghostly psychedelic moodiness throughout. Post-production and final mastering was completed by the Bishop Brothers after the untimely death of Charles Gocher in 2007 and the results will not disappoint followers of this impossible-to-describe unit. Funeral Mariachi provides a perfect introduction to the more melodic sector of the SCG universe surfacing, ironically, at the end of their career in the form of what someday should become one of the most beloved records they ever created. Limited one-time-only vinyl pressing housed in a beautiful, heavy-duty full-color gatefold jacket with the back cover photo taken during the last SCG photo session in 2006." - Abduction.

Title: Jacks Creek
Format: CD
Label: Abduction
Country: USA
Price: $15.50
"The Sun City Girls Jacks Creek was originally released in 1995, now reissued here on CD for the first time since the limited edition vinyl original went out-of-print 12 years ago. As Robert Dayton reviewed the LP version: "This album was reviled by the more avant-hipster snob crowd. As time passes, its reputation surely grows to put it right up there with the finest of The Sun City Girls diverse canon. And that is saying something! Being an act that can already alienate the unready, what caused this record to alienate their more uptight fans? Maybe its because it was their hillbilly album. Maybe its because the album opens during a still evening on a back porch with them talking about a mysteriously colored smell that predates an Indian burial ground and moaning He wore red to keep the devil away and distant howling and warnings that get more and more spooked out, gradually turning into a disfigured, slackjaw, downhoe preying on urban fears over its thirteen-plus minutes running time. Then follows a percussive piano-based swamp chase led by a gnarled stick shaker which turns over into improperly distilled moonshine chants. Side two contains lots of little musically inventive snapshots and curios. A good time jamboree on termite wood called "Useless Stillborn." A Civil War call to arms for people way too rot gut broken down to ever pass the draft. And oh so much more to offer from this trio who go above and beyond the call of duty of what could have been (but not in their hands) a one (or thirty) joke premise. I take it that you are already musically adventurous, well, give this a try! Feels like theyre shrinking (expanding) your head and preserving it in a jug." - Abduction.

Title: Juggernaut (Original Soundtrack Recording)
Format: CD
Label: Abduction
Country: USA
Price: $15.50
"Originally released as a limited edition LP by Abduction Records in 1994, and released on CD for the first time ever, this is an essential yet overlooked Sun City Girls recording consisting of various electric and acoustic tracks with a few compositional ideas rarely heard or revisited in their immense back catalog. And when we say compositional, we mean improvisation as composition which was basically the SCG method of operation in the studio. The record opens with two patented SCG stretched electric guitar/bass/drum works of dark beauty and then things become weirder as odd keyboards, acoustic instrumental and percussive pieces, and strange vocals start to dominate the rest of the album, setting the mood for Piasa... Devourer of Men which was recorded directly after Juggernaut. These tracks were exclusively created for a short film project by Mark Roman Bodnar and Kyrill Kazemirovitch Protsenko (a Ukraine/USA co-production) which resulted in a limited promo VHS release and a few festival screenings before the film was buried and forgotten. Segments from many of the ten tracks were actually used in the film, although there is much more to hear on the original full-length cuts found here. Some of the most unusual SCG studio recordings are contained on Juggernaut, all recorded live to 4-track cassette in 1993 in Seattle by Scott Colburn." - Abduction.

Title: Napoleon & Josephine (Singles Volume 2)
Format: CD
Label: Abduction
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"This is the second volume in a series featuring rare singles and unreleased tracks from Sun City Girls. In the summer of 1988, Sun City Girls began working on two records simultaneously: Torch Of The Mystics and Dantes Disneyland Inferno. The former was finished and released in December of 1989 but the latter wasnt released until April of 1996. Over those eight years, Dantes morphed into an entirely different record due to several songs originally targeted for inclusion being hijacked by other projects. Two tracks ("X+Y" and "Frankenstein") were siphoned-off to the Kaliflower LP in 1993 and 4 tracks (1, 11, 12, 13) included here were released on 7" singles in the early 90s. The two most notable of the singles tracks dominate this record. "Napoleon & Josephine," a 13-minute episodic conversation between a vagrant and a shop owner, was originally released as a single in 1991 on Scratch Records. The full track was split into sides (parts 1 & 2) running over 6 minutes long. An alternative mix which had been shelved for 15 years is featured here. "Reflection Of A Young Boy Eating From A Can Of Dog Food On A Shiny Red X-Mas Ball" was originally released as side 4 on the double single 3 Fake Female Orgasms (Majora, 1991) and was 8 minutes in length. This extended version is the original complete recording, running 22 minutes. Legendary Phoenix electronic musician and SCG associate David Oliphant mixed and processed the entire piece live to tape in his studio. The remainder of this set is composed of like-minded and literary SCG singles and compilation tracks, including the previously unreleased "The Weatherman" which was originally recorded as an introduction for "Napoleon & Josephine." This is the second of a multi-volume set of rare & long out-of-print singles, compilation, and unreleased tracks to be assembled and sequenced to play as full-length records. Vinyl editions may also appear in time." -Abduction.

Title: Piasa... Devourer of Men
Format: CD
Label: Abduction
Country: USA
Price: $15.50
"One of the strangest and most overlooked Sun City Girls recordings, Piasa... Devourer of Men was originally released on vinyl in 1994 and went out-of-print almost immediately. The record contains a series of short, folk-based tracks of raw beauty and intense moods. Most of the tracks were recorded in 1993 right after the completion of the Juggernaut soundtrack and some of the same ideas carried over into this project. A young and enthusiastic Italian director by the name of Antonio Pomola contracted SCG to create these recordings for his new film. The film was never completed and perhaps it was only an idea, but if it were to ever manifest, this music would certainly seem to fit the story line and the directors vision; the legend of a giant pre-historic flying reptilian terrorizing an early 1800s Indian tribe in Midwest America. Most of the tracks were created with acoustic instruments and voice and, with the exception of two tracks, the entire score was improvised. Recorded live to 4-track cassette by Scott Colburn, there is a strange, cohesive feel that runs throughout the album including several ceremonial and pan-ethnic tracks. Some cuts are completely indescribable. Reissued here on CD for the first time on Abduction, here is your chance to finally hear the cigarette played as a percussive instrument in an ashtray on the track "Nighthunting," among many other highly unique SCG tracks." - Abduction

Title: Static From The Outside Set
Format: CD

Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"Created for the "On The Wire" Radio Lancashire show, aired only once and never archived, Static From The Outside Set is a delirious roller-coaster ride through the prism of Sun City Girls audio archaeology. Hosted by the corpse of Mexican film legend Cantinflas, this 60-minute radio show is packed with unreleased SCG nuggets from studio tracks of classic cover tunes ("Gently Johnny" and "Gimme that Wine") to absurdist radio narratives ("Sacrifice in the USA" and "Lesters Dictionary"). Not since the halcyon days of Ken Nordines word jazz programs have radio shows been prepared to fuck your mind with a blunt dagger, yet SCG are much more diabolical and have spiked the punch with plenty of morphine drip and a Demerol lollipop or two thrown in to ease the unease. This is a limited one-time pressing of 1000 copies. Volume 14 of SCGs Carnival Folklore Resurrection series. " - Abduction.

Title: Torch of The Mystics
Format: LP
Label: Abduction
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Limited edition LP version with insert. Torch of the Mystics, the most popular and revered Sun City Girls album, was recorded in the summer of 1988 and became the first LP released on the Majora label in January of 1990 in an edition of 1000 copies (the original CD version was released by Tupelo Recording Company in 1993 and is long out of print). Reissued here for the first time, this record has influenced and inspired a wide variety of musicians and artists and continues to blow the minds of those hearing it for the first time today. Arguably as unique a psychedelic statement as anything else that has appeared since the early 1970s, Torch of the Mystics cannot easily be compared to any other album youve heard. Here is Byron Coleys original review from the May 1990 issue of Spin magazine:
"Just out of the box, and so majestic that it makes my brain do out-skull jigs across my sizzling, glass-strewn floor, is the Sun City Girls new LP, Torch of the Mystics. As the heppest of you undoubtedly know, the Girls are a death-defying improv-rock band from Arizona who number no females amongst their membership, but who still bleed profusely on a near-monthly basis. Their recordings tend to be scattershot fiestas of lump-rich style gumbo, and Mystics is easily the richest, lumpiest puddle of guh theyve yet emitted. The sounds on this record have moments of style-lifting, however, that should endear them even to fans of olden-days out-rock (a notoriously Luddite audience). At one point youll hear the circa-65 Mothers chanting Help Im A Rock while being pushed into a kettle of boiling oil by the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band; at another youll swear that your head is stuck in a lardy commode while one of the Fugs ESP recording sessions rages around your sweat-soaked and heaving trousers. ET-fuckin-CETERA. But these cops are not central parts of the whole. They pop up, rather, amidst swirling, psychedelic ethnic forgeries that will make Can fans renounce post-Landed Kraut Rock wax. Combined with this is greasy, long-wound-out puling that could come from nowhere but the small Arizona trailer park that birthed these honchos. The mix is nothing short of bo-weaving and I cant imagine that this disc will have many equals in 1990." Remastered by Mark Gergis." - FE.

Title: Youre Never Alone with a Cigarette (Singles Volume 1)
Format: CD
Label: Abduction
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Recorded in July of 1988 during the sessions that produced Sun City Girls most popular recording, these nine tracks represent the other half of songs which were originally prepared as a 2LP demo version of Torch of the Mystics for Placebo Records in 1989. The sequencing of all 20 tracks at the time was entirely different with the predominately instrumental tracks in this collection mixed in and around the mostly vocal tracks of what became Torch. Placebo went out of business shortly after this proposed 2LP idea was presented to them but Majora Records quickly stepped in to begin releasing most of the material. Included here are five tracks from early Majora singles: "100 Pounds of Black Olives" and "The Fine-Tuned Machines of Lemuria" (the complete unreleased 12-minute version) from the single "Youre Never Alone with a Cigarette" and all three tracks from Record #1 of the double 7" Three Fake Female Orgasms -- "Plaster Cupids Falling from the Ceiling," "The Beauty of Benghazi," and "Souvenirs from Jangare." The short piece "Harmful Little Armful" is from the triple 7" box set Bruce Lee, Heroin, and the Punk Scene (from a Bay Area label Massacre at Central High) and rounding out the set are three unreleased studio tracks recorded the same day as much of the Torch LP: never before heard versions of "Amazon One," "Sev Acher," and "Wild World of Animals." This is the first of a multi-volume set of reissued singles, compilation, and unreleased tracks to be assembled and sequenced to play as full-length records.

Title: Gum Arabic
Format: CD
Label: Annihaya
Country: Lebanon
Price: $22.00
"Sun City Girls were an experimental music trio from the United States. The group was founded in 1981 by guitarists and half-Lebanese brothers Alan and Richard Bishop. Charles Gocher joined as percussionist in 1982 and the Girls went on to become what many have described as North Americas most innovative and influential underground group. In 2007, Gocher passed away at 54 years old and the Bishop brothers decided to end their 26 year run. Annihaya is proud to release its third album: Sun City Girls Gum Arabic. A limited edition of 1000 copies with artwork by artist Hatem Imam. All tracks on this CD are cover songs from Sun City Girls repertoire, several frequently performed by the group live for more than 20 years. Several cuts were inspired by found unmarked cassettes and radio recordings made in Egypt and Morocco by Alan Bishop in the early 1980s. The original song titles and composers of the radio-inspired arrangements are unknown. SCG created their own song titles and rearranged, at times radically, the music to fit their vision. The rest of the tracks are by various artists from the Middle East and North Africa. One track, "Wild World of Animals" is an African piece written for the theme of an American television show by the same name from the 1970s." - Annihaya.

Listen to the quiet moments of track D-4 and hear one of the first PZM microphones rattle against the wall as it hung around a nail. What about the limiter on that old boom box as it wont allow the signal to continue recording on track C-6? Good thing they didnt have any money because everything would have sounded like shit! Some people say I should be shot for writing about this music. I met them in Malaysia when I was selling Asmat wood carvings from Irian Jaya. They nicknamed me Mikey which referred to Michael Rockefeller who had his interest in Asmat art cut short by angry tribal leaders. One of them told me years ago that were ALL Sun City Girls. Was he modest or was he lying? I dont know how many homosexuals ARE in the book of Revelations but I DO KNOW that the bible is always lying.

"Originally released in 1996, it was their second double CD of the year (along with Dantes Disneyland Inferno). Partly an ethno-surrealist take on places and forms known (Indonesian gamelan, Bollywood soundtracks, Polynesian folk, surf stylistics, and sci-fi thematics) and partly a stupefying surreal ethnography of places yet to be discovered as the collective Bishop Brothers, Mssrs. Gocher and Kang walk that liminal tightrope between Here and There. "Kickin the Dragon" was live recorded at the Off Ramp (now defunct) in Seattle. "Ghost Ghat Tresspass / Sussmeier" was recorded live at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco, and features EYVIND KANG on violin.

Format: Triple LP

Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"If you thought our little feverish bout with foolishness would stop with the triple vinyl of 300,003 Crossdressers, youre horribly mistaken. What could we do in our sickly state but quite naturally retread the retired Dantes Disneyland Inferno and give it a new engorged life as yet another triple vinyl expedition through the terrors and horrors of the verbal brain farts of Charlie Gocher in a burroughsesque cum firesign theatre theater (thats right, theatre theater) of absurdity backed by a variety of instrumental moods: bongo bohemia, c & w, lounge swing swong, ooga booga rock, childrens melodies and all things in between. Its been 7 years since its first digital transmission and the cloud of confusion only thickens. It only thickens. Just think, these are 35 tracks that you cant just skip through with your remote when things get too very because they do get?very very." - Locust.

Title: Bright Surroundings Dark Beginnings
Format: CD
Label: Majora
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"2nd CD in the Majora reissue program, this was the 7th Sun City Girls album, first issued on LP-only in 1993. It contains just three long tracks, opening with the ultra-gorgeous Eastern-laced ballad "The Venerable Song (The Meaning Of Which Is No Longer Known) -- a track which features a throbbing Alan Bishop bass-line mantra, much exotic Charles Gocher percussion and some unbelievably gliding lip numbness in the vocal dept. -- one of the most instantly recognizable sounds in modern music. "Omani Red Light" is one of those staggering trio cuts where Rick Bishop takes off for outer limits guitar-wise, heavily psychedelic and emotionally expressive, easily blowing away so much "real" psych that we all have to wade through. The final track is "The Multiple Hallucinations of an Assassin" -- a glowing improv-rock instrumental piece of perfectly intense resonance. The sequencing gives you an ideal feel for the mesmerizing frequencies this band was intent on emitting during the height of their live activity years, an era in American music when they were as threatening, confounding and potentially awe-inspiring as anyone that could be named. Yet another classic document." - Majora.

Title: Valentines For Matahari
Format: CD
Label: Majora
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Reissue of this all-time classic first issued on LP-only in 1993, and the first of a series of CD reissues of Sun City Girls material on this label. Chronologically, this is the 8th Sun City Girls album, following the first 3 on Placebo, and the early Majora titles: Torch Of The Mystics ,Dawn of the Devi ,Live From the Planet Boomerang &Bright Surroundings Dark Beginnings. Majora never issued information as to the source of their material, but the albums were laboriously edited for home listening perfection and these few records documented this American bands apex in terms of inspiration, instrumental explosivity and third mind delirium. Mostly recorded live on earth (not necessarily in front of other humans), the material on Valentines... is mixed blazingly loud, up front and in your face, particularly notable for the special crystalline nature of Rick Bishops guitar playing -- a melding of psychedelics, sharding post-Ginn scale extensions and Eastern-tinged luminosity. Alan Bishops bass is in full accompanying force, pushing the improvisational zig zaggery element of the band to its core (although perhaps best known for his sparkling skills n manners of deception, manipulation & charm, Alan just might be the most significantly underrated bass player of the last 15 years!). Charles Gochers clattering traps fill out the remaining spaces in the middle perfectly. The record starts with the deliriously powerful "Black Tent" and closes with the next-planet conversation piece, "Circus Haddam", by which time things have cracked up pretty goddamn far. A most significant record, back again." - FE.
