The Sun City Girls were an American experimental rock band, formed in 1979 in Phoenix, Arizona. From 1981 the group consisted of Alan Bishop (bass guitar, vocals), his brother Richard Bishop (guitar, piano, vocals), and Charles Gocher (drums, vocals). Their name was inspired by Sun City, Arizona, an Arizona retirement community. Charles Gocher died on February 19, 2007 after suffering from cancer for a long time, bringing an end to the group. In a 26 year career, they produced 50 albums, 23 cassettes, 6 feature-length videos, and many other recordings.
