Torch of the Mystics is the fourth studio album by American experimental rock band Sun City Girls. The 1990 LP cover released on Majora differs from the 1993 CD reissue by Tupelo. Most of the album was recorded on an 8-track at a home in Tempe, Arizona in 1988. The band took much of their inspiration from Alan Bishop's field recordings. Torch of the Mystics was originally issued by Majora Records solely on vinyl format in 1990.
Artwork – Christine Shields. Liner Notes – Charles Gocher. Packaged in a Digipak with 8-page booklet and 9-panel poster with full color reproduction of cover artwork plus discography on reverse.
Once they advertised a gig as Sun City Girls play John Coltrane’s Live In Seattle and then proceeded to play an original copy of said Coltrane album over the venue’s PA. They’ve performed a pitch-perfect cover of the soundtrack to Jodorowsky’s El Topo. Torch Of The Mystics, one such album, was recorded at a critical juncture for the group.
Album · 1989 · 11 Songs. More By Sun City Girls. See All. Mister Lonely (Music from a Film By Harmony Korine). You're Never Alone with a Cigarette (Singles), Vol. 1.
Originally, a limited 1000 run LP, Sun City Girls Torch Of The Mystics sees a long awaited rerelease in CD and limited LP format and it has been lovingly remastered by Mark Gergis aka Porest. I probably won’t be any different. This album is a thing of wonder
Torch of the Mystics represents the pinnacle of the first phase of the Sun City Girls. A concise, pinwheeling album that captures the band's pure commitment to emotional transcendence through music, the 11 songs here fly off into the netherworld of ethnic avant-garage rock with startling clarity
