Sun City Girls was a melting pot of free rock, demented surf, ragas, Arabic folk songs, free-form freakouts, gamelan percussion and dada poetry, among various others. A fiercely independent trio, their only credo seemed to be to continually stretch boundaries whilst leaning towards performance art in their live shows. This process led to a dizzying array of vinyl, cassette and CD releases stretching over 20 years.
Formed in Phoenix, AZ, Sun City Girls first performed under the name Fuck You in 1979, and after morphing into the short-lived Paris 1942 (with former Velvet Underground drummer Maureen Tucker), the group emerged as a trio with brothers Alan Bishop and Sir Richard Bishop and percussionist Charles Gocher in 1982. They released their first album, Sun City Girls, in 1984 onplacebo Records, going on to release nearly 30 official albums and countless limited-edition vinyl, cassette, and CD-R projects, making their discography almost impossible to completely document.
Throughout their history, Sun City Girls remained a challenging, unpredictable and eclectic musical unit, operating outside the commercially driven mainstream recording industry and eventually becoming something of a beacon to independent musicians and artists everywhere. Relocating to Seattle in the early ’90s, Sun City Girls established their own label, Abduction Records, as well as an archival imprint, Sublime Frequencies.

TL;DR Punk thread, share shit. Inevitable name calling, trolls, and taste critics abound! Scroll to the bottom for the share.
Alright all you:

Kick off those shoes and air out your nasty feet for a minnit, 'cause this here is a punk thread.
You don't have enough punk /mu/, and I have a couple of hours to share shit with you. So let's dig in!
All styles are welcome:

I'll start us off with a more accessible release for the uninitiated.

Don't be fooled by the album cover, these guys are as anti-racist as it gets. The cover was used both to shock the general public and troll any white power types who might have picked up the record with leftist songs. The Beastie Boys loved these guys.

>tfw you will never sing on one of the greatest albums in rock history, go on and make one of the greatest guitarists quit your band, and you hire a guy with a kfc bucket on his head to replace him, have dj ashba play for you, then later have brief romance with lana del rey who writes a song about you
Spotlight, bad baby, you've got a flair
For the violentest kind of love anywhere out there
Mon amour, sweet child of mine,
Didn't anyone ever tell you
It's OK to shine?
