The second volume in a series featuring rare singles and previously unreleased tracks from Sun City Girls. In the summer of 1988, Sun City Girls began working on two records simultaneously: Torch of the Mystics and Dante's Disneyland Inferno. The former was finished and released in December of 1989 but the latter wasn't released until April of 1996. Over those eight years, Dante's morphed into an entirely different record due to several songs originally targeted for inclusion being hijacked by other projects. Two tracks ("X+Y" and "Frankenstein") were siphoned off to the Kaliflower LP in 1993 and four tracks (1, 11, 12, 13) included here were released on 7" singles in the early '90s. The two most notable of the singles tracks dominate this record. "Napoleon & Josephine," a 13-minute episodic conversation between a vagrant and a shop owner, was originally released as a single in 1991 on Scratch Records. The full track was split into sides (parts 1 & 2) running over six minutes long. An alternative mix that had been shelved for 15 years is featured here. "Reflection of a Young Boy Eating from a Can of Dog Food On a Shiny Red X-Mas Ball" was originally released as side 4 on the double single 3 Fake Female Orgasms (Majora, 1991) and was eight minutes in length. This extended version is the original complete recording, running 22 minutes. Legendary Phoenix electronic musician and SCG associate David Oliphant mixed and processed the entire piece live to tape in his studio. The remainder of this set is composed of like-minded and literary SCG singles and compilation tracks, including the previously unreleased "The Weatherman," which was originally recorded as an introduction for "Napoleon & Josephine." This is the second of a multi-volume set of rare and long out-of-print singles, compilation, and previously unreleased tracks to be assembled and sequenced to play as full-length records.
