Eye Mohini: Sun City Girls Singles, Vol. 3

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Fred Thomas
Though faux-ethnomusicologist freaks Sun City Girls saw the end of a long and fruitful run with the untimely 2007 death of drummer Charles Gocher, their deeply prolific and profound recording career yielded dozens of full-length albums and untold amounts of relatively less easily available material.

Though faux-ethnomusicologist freaks Sun City Girls saw the end of a long and fruitful run with the untimely 2007 death of drummer Charles Gocher, their deeply prolific and profound recording career yielded dozens of full-length albums and untold amounts of relatively less easily available material. Eye Mohini is the third collection of tracks either unreleased or available only on out of print singles from the band's overwhelming discography. The 14 tracks on Eye Mohini span the time between the release of Sun City Girls' 1986 LP Grotto of Miracles and their move from Phoenix to Seattle in 1993. This especially formative time saw the group delving deeper into Middle Eastern-inspired guitar work and other international influences, wrapping its freaked sounds in a dreamlike cloak of multicultural mysticism. Standout tracks include the extended live version of "Sora/The Flower" and an alternate take of "Kickin' the Dragon," a tune originally included on their watershed 1992 album, Torch of the Mystics.
