Snafu were an English rustic/funk-rock band from London that released two albums on Phonogram-subsidiary WWA in 1973 and 1974, followed by a third on Capitol in 1975. Frontman Bobby Harrison had been involved in the tentative Procol Harum lineup that recorded “A Whiter Shade of Pale” in 1967. As Snafu folded, he issued the solo album Funkist on Capitol.
