SunCity Records Officially Out of Business

Recommended Posts

What's up with them? I haven't heard any news in forever, & dammit I was really looking forward to the Femme Fatale release. Are they still around?

I think David recently posted on melodicrock.com

 

Someone asked him about Suncity and he never replied.

It's hard to find the last 4 Suncity releases......I know Wishing Well tried to get them and failed also NEH doesn't have them anymore.....doesn't look good for Suncity....I'm not even sure I should order them directly from Suncity...

I got an e-mail from them several months ago. I was asking when Live Tongue's second album was going to see the light of day. I don't remember the exact wording from the e-mail, but the jist of it was that yes they were still around and the upcoming albums were still slated for release at an undisclosed time.

Last I heard, Babe Blu was going to be released on Suncity Records, but who really knows...

Recent I texted David about something which was written on Melodic Rock, and he texted back he was looking at. He hasn't been heard since.

I think Suncity is in Australia...?

Maybe someone can go there and ask... :D

Great label indeed...

Yep, based in Victoria, Australia, I believe. There was another thread here the other day with a note confirming the label was still in action with a few releases on the horizon... most notably, imo, the Baby Blu one.

So is it safe to assume this label is no more? :unsure:

Look at what Suncity's wikipedia page says:

 

Suncity Records is an Australian record label that specialized in releasing melodic rock and hard rock CDs. The label mostly focused on previously recorded, but unreleased, material. They were no longer online as of August 2011 leaving numerous bands without their compact discs.

What a shame. I loved most everything I bought from SCity. I know JetRed just reissued Flight Plan on their own. Its a great album.

It's pretty clear from discussion here and at MR that Suncity Records is now defunct. Moreover, David Moors is avoiding contact with anyone and everyone about the label, including his former clients, even retaining masters and CDs that belong to others.

 

I've changed the title of this thread and am stickying it.

I got an email from Myspace telling me to check out David Moors new profile. Could that mean something is in the works?

I'm not sure what he would have in the works. Word on the streets is he screwed over a lot of bands...

    • Love it!  Very new-breed DRN... I don't normally dig that type of thing from my favorite 80's bands, but I'm good with it here.  Once again, Daiker is all over this one. Look at Mel slide into everyone of those notes on bass.  Dude is SOOOOOOOOOOOO damn good.  Such a shame he's virtually unknown outside Portland, Oregon (and a those of you in-the-know for this type of music).
    • The guitar-work is great.  I think it's a pretty decent cover. Look, I've been a HUGE fan since 1983, so you'll be hard-pressed to get me to say anything negative about this band.  Those of you who weren't around to see them on the Pyromania and Hysteria tours... God I feel badly for you.  "Top of their game" is a HUGE understatement.  The Beatles of my era for sure.
    • Only point I was looking to make was that I agreed with the prior post above which had mentioned being frustrated that the guys hadn't put out many new releases over the last 15 years and that it may be beneficial to work with a better producer again.  Your follow up post pointed to the time between their earlier releases being similar and I responded to explain how I felt that was different, no worries though, we just see things differently
    • Inglorious indicated a few months ago that they had finished recording the songs for their third album, hinted as being heavier than their prior releases, which should be released via Frontiers in February 2019.  The first song/video from the upcoming album is out now https://www.planetrock.com/news/rock-news/inglorious-say-heavier-third-album-is-done-and-reveal-release-date/    
    • From 84 (the year after Pyromania) until 99 they released 4 studio albums, yes, but from 2000 until 2015 they released 3 studio albums, not 2. Not really that much difference. They also released the covers album, so that was pretty much the same level of output. They still continue to tour regularly and had issues such as Campbells cancer scare and recovery from that, plus the musical landscape is vastly different to that first time scale you mention.   Really not sure what your point is here?      
    • Uh...it doesn't sound bad.  Not as raw as the original and I think that hurts this version. But...if you're gonna do a cover, get the lyrics right.  "It's the eye of the tiger, it's the dream of the fight?"  Uh... no.
    • Damn good album...Has moved up my list also. I think as of now my top 4 are probably: Kissin' Dynamite Shiraz Lane Treat Maverick I'm not even bothering listing #5 as I'm saving a spot in the top 5 for Midnite City....Almost expecting that it'll slot in at either #1 or #2. And probably a good chance Nordic Union pushes the list also. Another release I'm really digging is Hearts On Fire.  Not officially out yet but have been listening to it for a month or so from doing a premium pre order.  Not quite making my top 5 but probably in the 6-8 range at the moment.
    • Been listening to this band a lot lately....Went back to the debut as I never spent much time with that album and sort of rediscovering it....damn good. And still like the new one a lot also....Not quite as melodic as the first couple albums but still lots of interesting hooks. Really the only album that does little for me is Into the Wild Life.  There's a few good tunes...I dig I Am The Fire....But really not much that keeps my interest on that one.
