Cosmic. A couple of weeks ago I had a serious moment with the Flamin’ Groovies’ Teenage Head at my bandmate‘s apartment and started a listening regimen that was roughly one spin of TH for every other record I played. Then I get an e-mail that the Groovies–or at least two of the main Groovies–are reuniting for the Ponderosa Stomp, a music festival that’s been happening in New Orleans for the past few years that I’m sorry to say I didn’t even know existed.
From the press release:
This year, one of the highlights of the 8th annual Ponderosa Stomp–April 28 and 29 at the House of Blues in New Orleans–will surely be the reunion of Cyril Jordan and Roy Loney of the Flamin’ Groovies. As the twin creative engines behind the original Groovies line-up, Jordan and Loney took the concept of greasy, good-time, high energy rock & roll to its face-melting limits, and created a template for countless underground American bands in the process. But Jordan and Loney haven’t shared a stage since 1971.
Who else is thinking road trip?
