One of the many enigmatic bands led by cult legend Merrell Fankhauser, central California’s Fapardokly was originally known as Merrell & the Exiles. The band’s sole, insanely rare 1967 LP (which was actually culled from earlier singles by the Exiles) became a highly collectible item thanks to its heady mix of Byrdsy folk-rock jangle and soaring pyschedelia—not to mention the presence of future Captain Beefheart side men John French and Jeff Cotton on several tracks. After the demise of Fapardokly, Fankhauser formed HMS Bounty and Mu before going solo.
