From: California, USA

Strangely enough, there was never actually a group called Fapardokly; their self-titled album was recorded by Merrell & The Exiles, a Southern California group lead by legendary cult folk-rocker Merrell Fankhauser. That group recorded several singles for the tiny Glenn label before heading off in a psychedelic direction, changing their name to H.M.S. Bounty. The UIP label gathered together a few of the Glenn singles, added a few more psych-oriented songs that Merrell and his band recorded, and released the package as the work of a group called Fapardockly. While it was not recorded or intended as a unified work, the album stands as one of the great lost folk-rock classics of the ’60s. Fankhauser went onto make more excellent recordings with H.M.S. Bounty in the ’60s and Mu in the early ’70s.
