Fugi was a psychedelic soul-funk music group signed to Chess subsidiary Cadet in the later ’60s. Simply the work of 1 guy, Ellington Jordan, their music was inspired particularly with the acidity rock aspect of Jimi Hendrix, and bore a resemblance towards the druggy, guitar-driven spirit of early Funkadelic. Their lone LP, Mary, Don’t Consider Me on No Poor Trip, premiered in 1968, as well as the name cut later on became a cult collector’s item. Fugi’s support band for the record was Dark Merda, a Detroit group who have been also authorized to Chess (because of Fugi) and documented a self-titled debut recording for Chess in 1967. Fugi after that shifted to the Western Coast, and continued to release several singles in 1970 — “Revelations” and “I’d Rather Be considered a Blind Man” — before fading from look at. He came back to live carrying out in the middle-2000s when wider fascination with both Fugi and Dark Merda produced a reunion feasible.
