    fuzz acid & flowers:
    Fankhauser formed this band after the demise of Fapardokly. Cotton and Willey had earlier played with Fankhauser in The Exiles.
    Mu initially lived on a half acre estate in Canoga Park, California and were heavily into meditation and vegetarianism. Their debut album, recorded on a small Beverly Hills label, was both inventive and imaginative.
    After Willey's departure the remaining trio moved to the island of Maui in Hawaii in 1974, where they recorded two singles for their own Mu label and, with the additional of Mary Lee, a second album, which was shelved when they split up. In 1981 Fankhauser remixed it, added two singles, and it was released in Italy.
    Many other tapes of Mu exist and Children Of The Rainbow is an excellent album of material recorded live on Maui in 1974. It's full of well-structured, often mystical songs and also includes some tasty laid back guitar work from Fankhauser and Jeff Cotton (who later played with Captain Beefheart). It also features a brief interview of the band by Lew Irwin.
    Fankhauser, one of the West Coast's most interesting musicians, went on to make three solo albums, including one in 1976 (Maui M 101) and Mary Lee continued to play in his band. Parker remained in Hawaii, where he purchased an orchid plantation and Wimer became a youth counsellor in Los Angeles.
    Like all of Fankhauser's bands, Mu were interesting and worth investigation.  ~ (Vernon Joynson/Chris Williams)
