Looking like a cross between Kiss and the Phantom of the Paradise, FURR play a mix of Black Nasty style funk, Savoy Brown sorta blues rock, freewheelin' 70s rock (good music to play Foosball to), with a couple references to black magic thrown in for good measure.
FURR had a slight tie to KISS in that their producers Kasenetz and Katz (Ohio Express, etc...) had a relationship with Neil Bogart ― of Buddah and Casablanca Records ― who also masterminded the marketing of Gene, Paul, Ace and Peter.
Sure the best thing about the album is the cover, but after the initial disappointment, I actually liked the record for what it was. If anyone has info on these guys, leave comments!
