SUN CITY GIRLS - Eye Mohini: Sun City Girls Singles Vol. 3

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.

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.

This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).

Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.

Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.

Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
