Ed Sanders on the Fugs and Counterculture in the Lower East Side

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Ed Sanders describes New York's downtown Bohemia in the 1960s and traces the career of the postmodern, innovative anarcho-folk-rock band the Fugs—formed in 1964 by Sanders and his neighbor, the legendary Tuli Kupferberg. He tells the story in his memoir Fug You: An Informal History of the Peace Eye Bookstore, the F**k You Press, the Fugs, and Counterculture in the Lower East Side.

Did not know of Ed before (I'm ~10y too young).
Glad to have him on the map now.
