SUN CITY GIRLS - Valentines For Matahari

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.

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.
