Merrell Fankhauser’s Return To MU – The 20th Anniversary Interview

2021. november 25. - Teakbois

American singer, songwriter and guitarist Merrell Fankhauser has been at the forefront of the surf and psychedelic rock scene for quite a few decades. He recorded landmark albums in a wide variety of styles, jammed and gigged with many important artists, and became a cult figure among serious music fans. He wrote the original version of the ‘60s surf rock anthem Wipe Out, and his songs are featured in successful movies like Pulp Fiction, Chappaquiddick and the recent box office hit The Trial Of The Chicago 7. In 2000, Merrell released Return To MU, one of his best albums ever. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of this unique masterpiece that blends numerous influences, I decided to ask the artist himself to act as our guide while we are revisiting the soundscapes of the mysterious lost continent called MU.
