Fuggin’ A!

Filed under: Music — rmangum @ 2:09 am

I’ve always found the Fugs’ material to be all over the map, from sophomoric, trite and pompous, to really hilarious and brilliant. (Kind of a microcosm of the whole New Left, actually.) One of my favorite songs is “CIA Man”, and you can hear a live version here. (Props to Anarchoblogs for tipping me off to this.) Best line: “Who can be so overtly covert?/ Sometimes even covertly overt?” I also like “overthrow dictators if they’re red”.

And there’s actually a dirtier cover version by Sun City Girls.

And, what the hell, while we’re walking on the freaky side, dig this Sun Ra over of “Pink Elephants on Parade” from Dumbo.
