Fu Manchu
In Search Of...
[Mammoth/Attic]


I think this is the album that made Fu Manchu known, as I remember seeing ads in metal mags for it. Clocking in around 40 minutes, you get nothing but more driving/skateboard-inspired stoner rock. As usual, it's straight ahead riffing, except for a few tracks like Neptune's Convoy or Supershooter sound like Monster Magnet territory with spacy effects, and The Bargain is a little mellow and bluesy, done in a white boy kind of way. Perfect production for this type of rockin/metal shit. One question..is Fu Manchu going to stay the underground's best kept secret?
