Fu-Manchu

Where did Fu-Manchu get the band name from - the-mask-of-fu-manchu-by-sax-rohmerThis Orange County, California based band makes rock music that aims particularly at stoners (recreational users of cannabis).

All this probably has little to do with the Fu-Manchu conceived by the English writer Sax Rohmer. His novel character became an enormous hit: after the various books, movies, television shows, radio programs and comics came out in which this remarkably mustachioed villain has the leading role.

Rohmer: 'Imagine a person, tall, lean and feline, high-shouldered, with a brow like Shakespeare and a face like Satan, ... one giant intellect, with all the resources of science past and present ... Imagine that awful being, and you have a mental picture of Dr. Fu-Manchu, the yellow peril incarnate in one man.'

In other words, the ideal father-in-law?

Active: 1987-present, USA
