The Fugs' Second Album

"Pictures of porn & pills, communist literature in my hand!"
The Fugs Second Album is one part rockabilly, another W.S. Burroughs netherworld, stirred up with sex, drugs and anti-establishmentarianism.

The Fugs even means The F**ks. Recorded in 1966, the Fugs Second Album included songs like "Group Grope" and "Dirty Old Man". They knew they were crude but there's a literary bent and that sensibility is the undercurrent to the work. There's tons of humor with the album's sarcasm peaking on the anti-war "Kill For Peace", a tune featuring a sound effect of a machine gun blasting over an epithet for Asians.

The Fugs stayed true to their Anarcho-musical mayhem with protagonists Ed Sanders and Tuli Kupferberg making music and poetry for the next 40+ years.
