The atavistic gnashing grooves of the Flamin’ Groovies are still vital some 50 years (plus) since they emerged from the psychedelic wilderness of west coast America.

Where others went ‘furthur’, the Groovies went faster. Emerging at the same time as the Haight’s brown rice psychedelic snobs, the Groovies never sat easily with peace and love, reeking as they did of cars and fucking.
