Fu Manchu

First day of "Stoner Rock Week!"

2. Eatin' Dust from Eatin' Dust
3. Shift Kicker from Eatin' Dust
4. Hell On Wheels from King Of The Road
5. King Of The Road from King Of The Road
6. Regal Begal from In Search Of...

Fu Manchu's video of "Evil Eye" pays homage to the film, Over The Edge (1979), starring a young Matt Dillon.
