Format: Audio CD
Back in 1968 I and a couple of friends were competing to bring home the weirdest records by the strangest, hairiest and most subversive bands we could find. We came up with the Mothers of Invention, Van Dyke Parks, Silver Apples and a whole lot of others, but way up there on the higher register of the weirdness scale were the Fugs, particularly with their LPs "Tenderness Junction" and "It Crawled into My Hand, Honest".
The Fug's earliest records from 1965 onwards were raw proto-punk folk rants with a distinct underground anti-establishment slant. They broke the F-word barrier on vinyl long before Frank Zappa. By the time of Tenderness Junction production values crept into their music thanks, I assume, to a variety of session musicians and the result was a potpouri of styles from doo-wop, Stax soul, acid guitar, jazz, to choral arrangements with orchestra. But the subversive core of their music wasn't deminished in any way by this, if anything they became more extreme and more uncatagorizable.
"Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out" (which breaks the T-word barrier) misquotes Timothy Leary's famous slogun about drugs but gives a foretaste of their 60s era predilection for drugs and sex as does "The Garden Is Open". "Knock Knock Knock" with its Stax type brass contains lyrics that at times are toe-curlingly rude but still make me laugh each time I hear them. "Wet Dream" has Ed Sanders doing his best to sing a teenage balad with Tuli Kupferberg interupting over a megaphone with the less euphemistic version of the lyrics. "Exorcizing the Evil Spirits From the Pentagon etc." is a live field recording in which a plethora of strange and wonderful deities are invoked to (as it says) drive out the evil spirits from that place.

Ah, The Fugs. Of all the strange, anarchic bands to emerge during the 1960s psychedelic era of mind-expansion and musical experimentation, The Fugs were amongst the most anarchic. Formed in New York in 1965 by beat poets, Tuli Kupferberg and Ed Sanders, the addition of Ken Weaver on drums and Steve Weber and Peter Stampfel of the Holy Modal Rounders on guitar, banjo and fiddle completed their original performing line-up. Drawing inspiration from Dadaism, Beat poetry and the Civil Rights movement they set about an anarchic musical crusade to free the American people from the tyrrany of their government. Not surprisingly, this led to clashes with both the authorities and their record labels and to a barrage of death threats from outraged right-wingers.
Among their most famous exploits was the exorcism of the Pentagon that took place in October of 1967, for which The Fugs provided the liturgy and led the chant of "Out demons, out" while the assembled tens of thousands of anti-war protesters linked hands and attempted to levitate the Pentagon building. After the chant, members of the band approached the armed soldiers guarding the entrance and placed flowers in the barrels of their raised rifles, thereby providing one of the poignant images of the whole Summer of Love. A recording of the exorcism appears on this collection.
In 1968, The Fugs found a home at Reprise Records where, as Ed Sanders recalls, "Mo Ostin, president of Reprise Records, never censored the Fugs, and released every master we sent." It's the albums recorded for Reprise that are featured in this glorious collection, starting with 'Tenderness Junction' and 'It Crawled Into My Hand, Honest," both released in '68, the year when the global revolution so nearly happened.
