Fungus originated in the early 70's as a
retro rock band. Puzzling, as retro wasn't even a term
then. They took the underground culture by storm with
their thoughtful Let Themselves Go hit and then eclectically
followed with the now pop icon, Oh Don't Do It To Me.
Struggling to find their identity (and needing a paying job)
the band split. For years each band member honed
their skills and on rare occasion, worked
on their music.
In 2004 the band reunited for a nostalgic
gig. Incredibly, not one fan was lost over the 30 year hiatus. Equipped with unrecognizable covers and boring new
material, the band blew away its virgin audience in Santa
Barbara. Riding The Acela was ridden deep into the night
as the masses danced in Dead-like waves.
Since then, many more unimaginative songs
have been produced and the group has performed from Florida to
Ohio. Barely a night goes by without someone wondering
why they bother. Contact the band and ask for yourself.
