Tuesday night rock'n'roll at the Annandale? Not gonna be an eventful night, no sirree....goin to pay homage to some power-pop legends who have given me years of inspiration and pleasure, coupla beers and some great tunes and home to bed. It's Tuesday night for chrissakes, can't get carried away, what can possibly go wrong I thought...I often forget about the influence of rock'n'roll on my weak will.
Plans are underfoot to make a movie about the Flamin' Groovies with a Kickstarter campaign raising more than $US10,000 of its $70,000 target with a month to go. Watch the promo below, then make a donation here.
Flamin' Groovy? The verdict is that it is indeed - and why wouldn’t it be? The singer for the most enduring (and some might say best) Flamin’ Groovies pop line-up re-surfaces with a solo album and ropes in Cyril Jordan, George Alexander, Mike Wilhelm - and even original line-up vocalist Roy Loney - from that same storied band.
With successful tours of Japan, Australia, London and the U.S. last year under their belt and a new studio album pending, the Flamin’ Groovies have announced extensive runs of shows in the U.S., Spain and France.
