Formed by Ed Sanders and Tuli Kupferberg, The Fugs took their name from a euphemism for "fuck" used in Norman Mailer's novel, The Naked and The Dead. Sanders produced this book of Fugs' lyrics through his small edition press out of the Lower East Side in New York. Gerard Malanga's name and address are found on the back cover of this copy in a handwriting closely matching his own - an as-yet-unsolved mystery attached to this issue.
