At The Dojo Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Beginning life in 1985 as a Black Flag-influenced, hardcore punk band called Virulence, Fu Manchu went on to become a household name in heavy, stoner rock, alongside contemporaries such as Kyuss, Sleep and Monster Magnet. Originally released on the legendary, now disbanded label Bongload, this is the second reissue for ‘Daredevil’ on the bands own record label At The Dojo.
Available on double vinyl LP on At the Dojo. Reissue of Fu Manchu’s sixth studio album that was originally released in 1999. If unfamiliar with the manchu, imagine Kyuss leaving their desert dwellings, taking a shot of whiskey. It’s stoner rock with them readdressing the sex and rock ‘n’ roll ratio.

Reissue of the first ever tracks from legendary stoner rockers Fu Manchu! Kept Between Trees was first released as a three track 7” in 1990, and this reissue from At The Dojo bolsters that with three extra inches and a previously unreleased track. Listen out for the wonderful vocals that sound devoid of all enthusiasm and hope!
Stoner rock dudes Fu Manchu get a reissue of their 2002 album California Crossing on At The Dojo Records, these guys were doing this sort of stuff way before the likes of Kyuss and Sleep were chonging their way through a mountain of recreation herbal hand rolled cigarettes, the original 2002 version of this currently fetches up to 60 quid on Discogs so pick up a copy while it's at a decent price.
Did you miss Fu Manchu? Well here they are, back again with their twelfth album after four years away. Clone Of The Universe is a fuzzed-up epic, particularly when it comes to the eighteen-minute goliath of a track that takes up all of side two. That track features none other than Alex Lifeson of Rush(!) as a very special guest. Very nice. Released by At The Dojo.
Stoner dudes Fu Manchu turn their attentions to Slow Ride a classic piece of boogie from groovy old rockers Foghat. Plus a Fu Manchu original, the first they’ve released for 2 years. This 7” single on At The Dojo (with a choice of red or transparent vinyl!) is mainly destined for a specific Fu gig in Hollywood, but a few copies have snuck out for general release.

Stoner rock mainstays Fu Manchu are approaching their quarter-century anniversary, but they've still got some new riffs in them. 'Gigantoid' is their latest full-length, continuing their fuzzy, pummelling legacy of neanderthal repetitive desert-rock riffing, scorched-earth guitar solos and monotone drawled vocals.
