Sun City Girls – “Carnival Folklore Resurrection 14: Static From the Outside Set ” – [Abduction]

Thurston Hunger   2/24/2006   A Library, CD

Hifi hijack on the Union Jack. The spicy Sun City Girls
rip the stiff upper lip off The Wire Lancanshire with
a little YankeeCanShire-CanDo, mixing up macaroni with
Marconi, and Giving them the Frequencies!! Micro-mystics
like “Anthrax Dandruff” & “Mysteries Behind the Curtain”
keep the torches burning in the caves of dusted psyche.
“Bacchanalia” could show up in cotillon, charlie foxtrot
echo Mecca Decca hecka Elvis in a wheelbarrow. Me, I’m
here for the instant history lessons, “Sacrifice in the
USA” is the centerpeace dividend here. Long pig on a
silver Freedom platter? Served up with a garnish of a
sterling Rod Serling accent. Of course, Sir Richard rapt
in strings is always Dlightful when Djangoized, or even
with Pigs in your eyes and ears (“Gently Johnny” wishes
you were ear). Love the harmony marmalade vocals on that.
Some folks are going to dig the pulling of the wool on
the Lambert et al cover. Brian’s brain is a dream, and
love hurts Amherst! Of course if you want to play spin
the dial in a bottle, drink of the 4 Radio Neocons. One
thing the Girls know is a good Con, here’s to us and
U.S. not voting for the one with the chopsticks in the
next election. Static for the ecStatics. -Hunger
