Between 1972 and 1978, San Francisco’s Flamin’ Groovies – featuring core members Cyril Jordan (guitar/vocals), Chris Wilson (vocals/guitar) and George Alexander (bass/vocals) – produced some of the decade’s most vital recordings, including the classic singles Shake Some Action and Slow Death. The band’s 1976 masterpiece album (also titled Shake Some Action) combined the early pop and R&B leanings of both The Beatles and The Rolling Stones with the focused energy of the emerging US and UK alternative rock scenes, landing the band god-head-status for a new generation of music fans looking for the sort of kicks not heard of since the high of the mid-sixties. Sire Records label-mates the Ramones’ 1976 London debut was in support of the Flamin’ Groovies while Australia’s Radio Birdman were the support act to the Groovies for their one and only European tour in early 1978. Dig It Up! will be the first time since 1981 that the Jordan/Wilson/Alexander line-up of the Flamin’ Groovies have appeared anywhere in the world.
