Album Review

Comprised of previously limited 7" singles, this collection uncovers an embryonic form of Fu Manchu, spotlighting early work before 1994's first full-length album No One Rides for Free. While elements emerge here that would make Fu Manchu a powerful band in the coming years, perhaps by accident, this music is slightly tinged with the Seattle sound so prevalent in the early '90s. Only ex-members appear here, with the exception of founder and leader Scott Hill, who continues to expand a musical vision culled from '70s pop culture, California summers, and righteous doses of genre giants Black Sabbath. "Don't Bother Knockin' (If This Van's Rockin')," "El Don," and "Pinbuster" offer a glimpse of the potential fulfilled on future records with stronger lineups. This album is not for the casual listener, but even fans may be disappointed that the scarce three-song debut on Slap-a-Ham Records isn't included to neatly package all early singles on one release.
