Sun City Girls Unveiled

I get a lot of crazy thoughts when I listen back to some of the music that we make. My head goes to places that I didn’t know we could go, and I’m [as] familiar with the sound as anybody else! —Alan Bishop, Sun City Girls

The three Girls, Richard Bishop (guitar and piano), Alan Bishop (bass and guitar), and Charles Gocher (drums), have spent 20 years creating willfully obscure music released on willfully obscure labels. They’ve never made any sense, conventionally speaking, and that’s what makes them them…
In short, it was your typical SCG fare—a free-ranging performance with a complete disregard for taste, convention, or planning. The merry pranksters delivered it all after a 10-year absence from New York.
—Tad Hendrickson, Review from a 2002 live performance at the Kitchen in NYC, The Village Voice
