  • Poets Tuli Kupferberg and Ed Sanders couldn't play any instruments, but they sure knew all about the spirit of rock & roll. Sanders edited and published a profanely titled arts magazine in post-Beat, early-'60s Greenwich Village, and local friends, including Peter Stampfel and Steve Weber of the Holy Modal Rounders, and guitarist Ken Weaver, provide most of the music on this underground classic.
  • Alternately angry, beautiful, rude, and gut-bustingly hilarious, these songs, recorded in 1965, are both folk classics and among the first and best punk anthems ever recorded. Weaver's "I Couldn't Get High" is a garage-rocking stomper that wouldn't sound out of place in the NUGGETS series, and Weber's ironic masterpiece "Boobs A Lot" says more about locker-room culture in two minutes than volumes of social studies. This essential reissue adds an album's worth of high-quality outtakes.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (11/25/93, p.112) - 4.5 Stars - Excellent Plus - "...FIRST ALBUM finds [The Fugs'] obsessions in full flower: Sanders warbles Blake and Allen Ginsberg; Kupferberg provides awesome existentialism....For all their wallowing in earthly pleasures, transcendence is what the Fugs' are all about..."
