Formed in 1959 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, the Fendermen were a trio best known for the 1960 US chart Top 5 rock n roll adaptation of the Jimmie Rodgers country standard Muleskinner Blues.

The group consisted of guitarists Jim Sundquist and Phil Humphrey (both 26 November 1937, Sundquist in Niagara, Wisconsin, USA, and Humphrey in Stoughton, Wisconsin, USA) and drummer John Howard, of LaCrosse, Wisconsin, USA. The two guitarists, who preferred the Fender brand of electric guitar, hence the name of the group, recorded Muleskinner Blues initially for the small Cuca label. It was picked up by the somewhat larger Minnesota-based Soma Records and became a hit in May 1960. (Howard was added at that time, for live appearances.) The group recorded one album for Soma, now a valued rarity in the USA, and continued together until 1966, with no other chart successes.

Don't dare believe The Fendermen started and ended with "Mule Skinner Blues," the crazed, pickled-in-reverb hoot-fest that had parents from coast to coast yelling, "what in the name of jehosephat are you listening to??" Describing this album as Jimmie Rodgers meets the Ventures on a three-day bender doesn't begin to do justice to the fearless vocalizin,' aggressive strummin' and unearthly yodelin' herein! It's all guaranteed to raise your eyebrows, move your feet and make you smile!
