In other news, FU MANCHU have just returned from the recording studio where they laid down a version of "Things Start Moving" by THE ADOLESCENTS. The band also recorded four new songs, which will be finished after they return from the Festimad festival appearance in Spain at the end of the month.
Commented singer/guitarist Scott Hill: "THE ADOLESCENTS song came out great. Tony, singer for THE ADOLESCENTS, came down to the studio and we did a version of the song with his vocals. It sounds amazing. He nailed it in one take. He made me sing a version as well. We may put up some new songs on the site soon."
FU MANCHU's latest CD, "Start the Machine", was released in September. 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.
