Part of the fun of these ‘free folk’ pioneers is trying to figure out who’s in the band on any given day; their MySpace page lists over 30 members as well as five hometowns for the band. Of course, that just goes part and parcel of their semi-anarchic music—after all, why have a proper band when you can have a bunch of freaks float in and out at will? But flakes they ain’t—they’ve been at this since 1997 and have a few dozen records in their discography now (many self-released). With the Sun City Girls now gone, someone’s gotta keep the freak flag flying, right? With Nancy Garcia and Grasshopper.
