SUN CITY GIRLS - Jacks Creek

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.

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.
