Cyril Jordan and Roy Loney of the Flamin’ Groovies

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 (in 1971)
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".    The
current lineup led by Cyril Jordan and featuring Chris Wilson, just
released their first new album together in 38 years, and are receiving
major accolades regarding what is being called one of the best rock
releases of this (or any) year.
