The group switchedtoMammoth Records for their 1996 album InSearch Of...; the next year, founding members Scott Hill (vocals, guitars) andBradDavis (bass, vocals) added lead guitarist Bob Balch andformer Kyuss drummer Brant Bjork to their lineup, and they releasedtheirsecond album for Mammoth, The Action Is Go. During this time thegroup gained a reputation as a powerful live act,supportinglike-minded groups like the Melvins, Kyuss, White Zombie, Monster Magnet, andClutch in the States, and CorrosionofConformity, the Hellacopters, and Marilyn Manson in Europe. 1998 saw the release of Return to Earth,which collected theirearlysingles, and the Eatin' Dust EP, which was released by Frank Kozik's Man's Ruin label. Fu Manchu released their fifthfull. lengthalbum, King of the Road, in early 2000, following it up with a lengthy tour of the United States. They took time off to workonnewmaterial, emerging in the spring of 2001 with California Crossing. As their live show neared perfection, they tookanopportunity to showcasetheir stoner rock stage skill with 2003's Go for It...Live! The following year they released twonewstudio discs, Start the Machine and(Godzilla's) Eatin' Dust. And in 2007 the band returned with an angrier but typicallyheavyalbum titled We Must Obey, a sarcastic rebuttaldirected toward anyone with the gall to try and push them around. « hide
