Album Review

Sun City Girls – “Funeral Mariachi” – [Abduction]

FUCK YES- another Sun City Girls album! This one was recorded in Seattle by Alan Bishop, Randall Dunn and Scott Colburn. Alan Bishop does vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, electric bass, pitch pipe, mandolin, organ, mellotron and percussion. Richard Bishop on electric guitar, piano, organ, vocals, acoustic guitar and electric bass. The late Charles Goucher on drum kit, gamelan, gongs and misc. percussion. Also featured on this release Jessika Kenney on vocals on A-3, A-5 and B-4, Eyvind Kang on viola on B-2 and B-4 and David Carter on trumpet on B-6. This is mind blowing stuff, typical of what we have come to expect from these masters of their craft. These records are of limited issue and very rare. I started becoming obsessed with the Sun City Girls because of my interest in Alan’s solo work as Uncle Jim and Alvarius B (which I would highly recommend). Track 5 on Side B is a cover of an Ennio Morricone arrangement.
