Biography

There are 5 artists/bands with the name Fanny:

1. Formed by two Philippines-born-California-raised sisters, guitarist June Millington and bassist Jean Millington - the group, initially known as Wild Honey, was completed by drummer Alice de Buhr and keyboardist Nickey Barclay. (A famous rumor to the contrary, the name Fanny was not given to them by George Harrison, but selected by the band members. ) Supporting themselves for years by gigging at bars, clubs, fraternities, and armed forces bases in the late ’60s, opening for such bands as The Doors, Fanny were signed to Reprise Records in 1969 after a concert at the famed Troubadour club in Los Angeles.

Fanny were influenced by The Beatles, Cream, Badfinger and Little Feat (whose leader, the late Lowell George, would become one of the band’s most trusted friends). Producer Richard Perry (known for his work with Carly Simon) would oversee the band’s first three albums, including Fanny Hill, notable for having been recorded at London’s Abbey Road studios with Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick. Fanny’s final album for Reprise, Mother’s Pride, was produced by Todd Rundgren.

2. Fanny is the alias of Winnipeg, Manitoba breakcore producer and Scottish expatriate Frasier Runciman.

Fanny began his musical career in the 1980s at the end of the British punk rock explosion, playing guitar for bands in Edinburgh. He used influences from The Banshees to Def Jam, Stravinsky to P-Funk.
