Description

    The Fugs Santa Monica Civic Auditorium Concert Poster (1967). One of the most unusual "rock" acts of the mid 1960s, the Fugs composed of Beat poets Ed Saunders (owner of New York's Peace Eye Bookstore) and Tuli Kupferberg, plus drummer Ken Weaver. They took their name from a peculiar word used as a substitute for a popular four-letter euphemism found in Norman Mailer's novel, The Quick and the Dead. This poster, featuring their "patriotic" red, white, and blue logo, comes from a brief period in early 1967 when the band was signed to Atlantic Records (who would eventually reject the completed album the band delivered to them). Opening the show was another well-known poet from the Beat Generation, Allen Ginsberg. The poster measures 14.75" x 22", and is in Near Mint condition.
