They’ve never made any sense, conventionally speaking, and that’s what makes them fun – Ted Hendrickson, Village Voice

Sun City Girls were ‘the first truly crazy band to emerge from the shards of hardcore’ (Byron Coley)…also according to Coley, Sun City Girls laid the foundation for today’s new American sub-underground: ‘Without these french-fried, grass-skirted motherfuckers it would all sound like MerzbowErik Davis, The Wire

Sun City Girls are three Arizonan MEN who are into world musics of all kind, field recordings, aggression, disturbing humor, obscurity, confusion, profanity and improvisational noise jazz played on rock instruments. That last one is the downfall of their catalog. Like Frank Zappa and Psychic TV, for some reason they feel that every single note that they’ve ever played deserves to be released – which makes for some incredibly annoying lo-fi live recordings of the band just dicking around on stage. And this sucks the wang of the editor of Kerrang because their good stuff is REALLY good: funny, oddball, unique, well-performed and intelligent. – Mark Prindle
