About Fu Manchu

Southern California stoner rock outfit Fu Manchu exist in a world of their own making, dominated by extra-crunchy guitar riffs, vintage muscle cars, and a sense of '70s-style cool that suggests a raunchier, more dude-centric version of Dazed and Confused. Led by guitarist and singer Scott Hill, the sole constant member, Fu Manchu's sound is livelier and more swaggering than many of their stoner peers, but their obsession with motors, old-school metal, and simple but massive guitar figures marks them as part of the fold. Debuting with 1994's No One Rides for Free, they started hitting their stride in the studio with 1997's The Action Is Go, 2000's King of the Road, and 2001's California Crossing, which were definitive documents of their sound and outlook. While their output slowed in the 2000s, 2014's Gigantoid and 2018's Clone of the Universe showed them continuing to deliver to their fans.
