An Unconventional Covers Band

Sun City Girls - Def In Italy

This is a cassette tape released by the band in 1984, the year the world ended. I think it is a good introduction to what this band does, because it starts with a semi-recognizable frame of reference. Needless to say, their covers of Black Magic Woman and Precious and Few are pretty far from straight readings. Dark Star, Ghosts, and the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly are closer to the SCG heart.

If you've not heard the 'girls, they maybe the most out-there American band of the last 20 years. They cover a lot of bases - free jazz, ethnic music, punk rock, psychedelia, pure noise, comedy. No surprise, then, that they didn't catch the alterna-rock wave of the late 80's.

Seriously, if you ever see anything by this group pop up at the local record shop, grab it. All of the SCG work, whether original records or CD's or their ethnographical field recordings, are short run releases. You'll probably not get a second chance.

Oh, and grab the other SCG file on the site. It's really brilliant, and I'm disappointed how few of you checked it out. Sorry to proselytize here, but this is music you shouldn't miss.

Track list:
Side 1
1) Black Magic Woman
2) Il Buono, Il Brutto, Il Cattivo
3) Let the Night Roar
4) Shango
5) Kal El Lazi Kad Ham

Side 2
1) Precious and Few
2) Ghosts
3) Spirit In the Sky
4) Dark Star
5) Jungles of Marines on Acid
6) We Will Play One More

Thanks very much for sharing this, going to see this band next week at ATP - can't wait! Would be super grateful to hear anything else you might have by this band. Also, small point but the tracklisting you've given seem to be for the double lp reissue and not the original cassette (different tracks according to their website), no worries, thanks!!
Mine is the lp reissue, not the orig cassette. Both are OOP.
Ok thanks for clearing that up, is there any possibility you could put up the 'Fresh Kill of a Cape Hunting Dog' aswell? I can also share Djinn Funnell and Tibetan Jazz 666 if you're interested?
Love the Girls, although I have to disagree with the "buy anything by them when you see it" idea...I like almost everything I have (I grabbed most of the field recordings stuff from the library), but I can't imagine that would be true for most people, even most people who like quality music. Anyway, I'm looking forward to hearing this, and I did really really enjoy the last one you posted as well.

A request: Ron Pate's Debonairs disc...somebody gave you a link in a comment with the last Fred Lane post, but it was defunct.
