The Fugs

The Fugs are a band formed in New York in late 1964 by poets Ed Sanders and Tuli Kupferberg, with Ken Weaver on drums. Soon afterward, they were joined by Peter Stampfel and Steve Weber of the Holy Modal Rounders. The band was named by Kupferberg, from a euphemism for "fuck" used in Norman Mailer's novel, The Naked and the Dead. Read More
