Album Review

Sun City Girls – “Live Room ” – [Three Lobed Recordings]

Thurston Hunger   7/6/2006   A Library, CD

Uncle Jim and Pint-Sized Spartacus fans you are going
to want to slide this here disc into your bellybutton
and put in on internal, eternal repeat. Rapid-fire
pop-culture discarded but on the rebound (May I call
to the witness stand Roni Seikaly and Trent Trucker?)
hop dropped hiply over piano flourantes from (I’m
guessing here) Sir Richard Beezelbubbleboy. Word-play
fray on display, Uncle Jim’s got a shoulder on his
chip and Charles Gocher’s got some sort of sour
bourbon civil war general rasping waxhodic. Blubbery
in the best sense, recorded where you can just about
see the spittle on the lips. There’s some great
interaction between Charles and Alan on #4, it has
the veil of a supervillain-come-charlatan, cackling
rosie tinted ear glasses. Piano is mysteriously moving
in the shadows through-out, and Gocher gots get to
giving his inner free drummer some too. On #7 and #9,
we get the straight dope from crooked times. Do the
hoaxy-poaxy! Recorded in 1994 for KCMU, gotta love
those snazzy intro and outros (latter is the last 60
seconds of the disc) featuring Abe “The Number of
the” Beeson. Hey-yoooooooooo. -Thurston Hunger
