I found out today that Charles Gocher, drummer/writer of the Sun City Girls passed away yesterday at the age of 54 after a long battle with cancer. It saddens me very much as he was a big inspiration and that group will not be the same without him. I don't even know if they will continue without him. I feel that the Sun City Girls are one of the most important contemporary American groups. Covering a lot of sonic ground and always full of surprises.
Here is a 2 CD collection of many of their hard to find 7" singles. A lots of which contain the spirit of Charlie.
