Mike from BrooklynRocks talked with Groovies founding member Cyril Jordan earlier this week about the band's new single ("End of the World"), forthcoming disc and the impetus behind the reunion of the Shake Some Action lineup. They also went back into the Groovies' history as Cyril talked about his encounters and friendships with rockers Jimi Hendrix and Cream and how the Groovies were the house band for the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Cyril is documenting his memoirs in a column in Ugly Things magazine.
This Friday night, the Groovies are playing the Norton Records Bash at Warsaw in Brooklyn on Nov. 15th. Tickets are $35 and the other bands on the bill are old-school garage rockers The Sonics and Daddy Long Legs.
