Mike McGonigal writes about the Sun City Girls for the Seattle Weekly. He mentions the recent show at Tacoma’s Java Jive, and that he first saw the girls when they toured with eighties skatepunk band JFA in 1984, the same tour I first saw them on.
I’ve been friendly acquaintances with the Girls since they first moved here, even designing an early Abduction Records logo. Alan is the person who first told me about Kurt Cobain’s suicide, the morning they found the body.
So it’s a distinct relief to see this piece, which, I must say, does a pretty good job of capturing the delightful non-sequiturs the boys are so fond of tossing off.
