The Fugs - CIA Man

Tuli Kupferberg:
Tuli Kupferberg, who died on July 12 aged 86, was a founder of the Sixties rock group the Fugs, as well as a Beat journalism publisher and an anarcho-pacifist.

From the;.
Kupferberg, the poet Ed Sanders and Texan Ken Weaver formed the backbone of the Fugs, a band formed on New York's Lower East Side in 1964. The band's name came from Norman Mailer's substitute for the word "f---" in his novel The Naked and the Dead. Kupferberg wrote the lyrics for the song Kill for Peace, an anti-war number considered timely by many owing to the escalating conflict in Vietnam.
