Another of those bands that falls into the category of you either like them or you hate them. considering their durability as musicians, I have learned to enjoy their approach to music, they most certainly have their own identifiable sound. It is without a doubt a fact that the Fudge were not really known for their own original compositions but rather for their reworked covers of other peoples songs. From the beginning almost 50 years ago they took possesion of the Supremes "You Keep Me Hangin' On" and made it their own. It charted high in 1967 and established them as an original psychedelic band. they have a sound that is that of a musically psychedelic locomotive ...big and heavy. They still perform today and have just released a new CD once again focusing on implementing their sound in reworking songs  from the sixties.

The band circa 67-68
