SUN CITY GIRLS - Napoleon & Josephine (Singles Volume 2)

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.

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.
