Where does the term "six million" originally come from? -Alan Bishop, founder of experimental rock band The Sun City Girls

They’ve released 50 albums and you’ve still never heard of them?! That’s because the Sun City Girls are challenging, abrasive, experimental and, outside a devoted fan group, unknown. Alan Bishop and his brother Rick formed the band with drummer Charles Gocher in Arizona in 1979. They weren’t the first noise-rock-improv band, but they were relentless, influential, and mysterious. There was nothing like them in Arizona, that’s for sure. Almost every album takes on a different theme with focus on; spoken-word, jazz, world music, etc. Plus, they’re pretty funny. Torch of the Mystics is their most well-known album, give it a whirl and see what you think!
