The Fugs In-depth Biography

Arguably the first underground rock} group of all time, the Fugs} formed at the Peace Eye bookstore in New York's East Village in late 1964. The nucleus of the band throughout their many personnel changes was Peace Eye owner Ed Sanders} and fellow poet Tuli Kupferberg}. Sanders} and Kupferberg} had strong ties to the beat} literary scene, but charged, in the manner of their friend Allen Ginsberg}, full steam ahead into the maelstrom of '60s political involvement and psychedelia}. Surrounded by an assortment of motley refugees from the New York folk} and jug band} scene (including Steve Weber} and Peter Stampfel} of the Holy Modal Rounders}), some of whom could barely play their instruments, the group nonetheless was determined to play rock & roll} their way -- which meant rife with political and social satire, as well as explicit profanity and sexual references, that were downright unheard of in 1965. Starting on the legendary avant-garde} ESP} label, the Fugs}' debut was full of equal amounts of chaos and charm, but their songwriting and instrumental chops improved surprisingly quickly, resulting in a second album that was undoubtedly the most shocking and satirical recording ever to grace the Top 100 when it was released. After cutting an unreleased album for Atlantic}, they moved on to Frank Sinatra}'s Reprise} label, unleashing a few more albums of equally satirical material that were more instrumentally polished, but equally scathing lyrically. Breaking up around 1970, Sanders} and Kupferberg} continued to write prose and poetry, and sometimes wrote and performed music both on their own and as part of Fugs} reunions. By breaking lyrical taboos of popular music, they helped pave the way for the even more innovative outrage of the Mothers of Invention}, the Velvet Underground}, and others. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide
