The Flamin’ Groovies have returned with the album, Fantastic Plastic. This high-energy, pop-inflected album also brings back together the original members Cyril Jordan and Chris Wilson for the first time in 38 years!
Jordan and Wilson parted company in 1980, and both men went on to enduring work as keepers of the rock ’n’ roll flame — the former with the Groovies and his successor act, Magic Christian, the latter with England’s Barracudas and his own solo albums. The two musicians were reunited in 2013 in London, Wilson’s home at the time, where Jordan and co-founding Groovies singer-guitarist Roy Loney played a show backed by Miriam Linna and the late Billy Miller of Brooklyn’s A-Bones with Ira Kaplan of Yo La Tengo.
Catch Flamin’ Groovies this Friday at The Southgate House Revival with Tiger Sex and NP Presley & Ghost of Jesse Garon!
