A Fugs Discography

In this simple discography of The Fugs, Ed Sanders, and Tuli Kupferberg, I attempt to list each recording (LP, Single, CD, tape or cassette) that I have been able to trace, though omitting downloads and online content. Reissues are usually noted with the original publication, but I list separately reissued discs where there is variation of title or of content. There may well be inconsistencies in the coverage. With the ESP recordings in particular, there are numerous variations in the packaging and labelling of the album which I shall not attempt to enumerate here.

The Fugs themselves were formed in New York City in 1964 by Ed Sanders and Tuli Kupferberg, with Ken Weaver on drums. Later that year they were joined by Peter Stampfel and Steve Weber of The Holy Modal Rounders. Sanders says the Fugs started out with an air of anything-goes possibility—what a show could be and how the band would progress were entirely up for grabs.
We started out in Greenwich Village, on the Lower East Side, and we were in the middle of a lot of music: the jazz clubs, the civil-rights songs, the folk movement, rock’n’roll. Everyone had guitars in their apartments, and we’d put beat poetry to music. It was a time when you could rent a store front, rent a smoke machine, have someone dancing in a bathtub full of grapes, play some songs, and you could charge admission.—SANDERS
1965


The Fugs.—The Village Fugs Sing Ballads of Contemporary Protest, Point of Views, and General Dissatisfaction.—Broadside Records/Folkways, US, 1965.—BR304/FW 05304 (LP, Album, 33⅓ RPM, Mono)

Performers : John Anderson, Tuli Kupferberg, Vinny Leary, Ed Sanders, Pete Stampfel, Ken Weaver, Steve Weber.
“The Village Fugs” was released in 1965 on Broadside Records, a subdivision of Folkways, and reissued in 1966 as “The Fugs First Album” on ESP Disk.
This first album included two William Blake tracks: “Ah! Sunflower”, from Songs of Innocence and of Experience, and “How Sweet I Roamed from Field to Field”, from Blake’s juvenile Poetical Sketches. These were, almost certainly, the first pop or rock settings of Blake’s verse.

Meanwhile we were recording what would be our triumphal album of the 1960s, It Crawled into My Hand, Honest. ... I created a lengthy “Magic Rite,” which we recorded. Ken Weaver wrote “Aztec Hymn,” which we also recorded. And I worked with jazz composer Burton Greene on another long work, “Beautyway,” based on a Navajo ceremony. We also recorded a song about poet William Blake walking naked with his wife Catherine, while reading Milton’s Paradise Lost in their garden in 1793. None of these tunes would wind up on the album.—SANDERS.
