Caught one of my favorite heavy bands, Fu Manchu, Sunday night at the Triple Rock Social Club, along with my good friend Clint (the mastermind of local upstarts Savage Hogg). Fu Manchu is a Southern Californian stoner rock band, who have release many great records over the years since they formed in 1985, including probably their most successful California Crossing. Their latest CD "Signs of Infinite Power" came out last year (2009) on Century Media Records.
Funny moment: Fu Manchu's been known to do some cool covers, including Devo's Freedom of Choice, and The Cars' Moving in Stereo. Someone screamed Freebird, to which Scott Hill said you meant Superbird (their song). Then someone screamed Deep Purple, to which they launched into the intro of the Purple's Space Truckin'. Cool.
