Band: FU MANCHU
Who: American stoner rock heroes, formed in
Southern California in 1985, and still going strong.
Album: IN SEARCH OF… FU MANCHU – third LP
Released: 27 February 1996 – 25 years ago
AllMusic/Eduardo Rivadavia: “Fu Manchu was one of the most enduring
and influential bands of the ’90s stoner metal movement (along with Kyuss,
Monster Magnet, and Sleep), but it wasn’t until their third full-length release,
‘In Search Of…’, that the Southern California stoners finally obtained ‘major’
label support by signing with Mammoth Records… Not that this had any effect
on singer Scott Hill’s indistinctive vocals, or the band’s fuzzy dirge of post-Black
Sabbath riffery with psychedelic overtones.” Score: 4/5.
Turn Up The Volume: I’m sure that Queens Of The Stone Age
ringleader Josh Homme knows all Fu Manchu albums by heart.
