Marketing Highlights

"The Flamin' Groovies story goes all the way back to 1965 when the band began as the Chosen Few in their hometown of San Francisco, California.  After a name change and a self-released 10 inch album called “Sneakers”, which sold amazingly well, the band caught the attention of Columbia who signed them up and sent them into the studio with a big budget to record their first real album, “Supersnazz”, on the Epic label. Their next two albums were on Kama Sutra (home of their heroes, The Lovin' Spoonful): “Flamingo”, and the now revered classic “Teenage Head”.             Lead singer Roy Loney left the band right after that and lead guitarist Cyril Jordan moved the group to England with Chris Wilson (formerly of Loose Gravel) taking over as front man.  They continued their style of straight ahead guitar driven rock n' roll but this time with a more 60's rather than 50's influence.   A few singles on United Artists, recorded at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Wales with Dave Edmunds producing, followed in the early '70s.  In '76 they signed to Sire Records, who released three true gems of power pop: “Shake Some Action”, “Flamin' Groovies Now”, and “Jumpin' In The Night”.               Another lineup change ensued in the next decade with Wilson moving to England and joining the Barracudas.  Jordan later formed a new band called Magic Christian while Wilson released solo albums in Europe.         Now in 2017, the lineup featuring Cyril Jordan and Chris Wilson are BACK IN ACTION, as they continue to present their own unique and infectious style of rock n roll with such cult classics as ""Slow Death,"" ""Shake Some Action,"" and ""Teenage Head."", and a new set which includes brand new songs off their new soon-to-be-released album, “Fantastic Plastic” (due in August).  It's hard to say just why the group hasn't gotten the attention they deserve (at least in the USA) but they're back to give everyone another chance at hearing and seeing just why those in the know consider them one of the greatest rock n' roll bands ever.   "
