AllMusic Review by

Sun City Girls drummer Charles Gocher leads the show on Dante's Disneyland Inferno, not for his usual ethnic percussion battery, but for his deadpan mutterings as lead storyteller. Thirty-five songs that chronicle his twisted visions are backed by acoustic clutter from Alan Bishop, whose 11-minute stream-of-consciousness spiel "The Geography of the Swastika" is outstanding. Sun City Girls don't appear as the psychedelic rock band of Torch of the Mystics in this sequence; it's more like the absurd theater of Jacks Creek, where Kurt Weill meets William S. Burroughs and the two set about composing depraved children's songs.
