FU MANCHU have posted the following message on their official web site:
"In an effort to pay tribute to the great city and people of New Orleans that have hosted the band on many an occasion, FU MANCHU have put up special collectors' items for auction. All proceeds from this auction will be donated to local charities and the local ASPCA of New Orleans. Included are: 2 original silk screen show posters suitable for framing from their most recent New Orleans shows in 2004 and 2005 and a FU MANCHU custom skate deck with green trucks and matching green FU MANCHU wheels from Gravity Skateboards. All items are signed by the band and will be bid on as one collection. We are working on getting a corporate donor who will match the funds raised by this auction, so please help to make this a great success!!! Just because its off the front pages, the need does not go away!!! Help us heal the Crescent City so it may rock-n-rage once again!!!"

FU MANCHU's latest CD, "Start the Machine", was released in September 2004. The follow-up to 2002's "California Crossing" (Mammoth) was produced by Brian Joseph Dobbs (VOIVOD, MANMADEGOD, DEATH ANGEL) and marks the group's first release for DRT Entertainment, the independent label founded in 2003 by senior music industry executives Derek Shulman, Ron Urban and Ted Green.
