Flamin' Groovies: Shake Some Action (Bomp!)

Robot A. Hull, Creem, September 1976

FOR THOSE OF YOU wondering where rock & roll has been all your lives (grew up on Jimi Hendnx and heavy-metal, didn't ya, bosco-brain?), well, kid, HERE TIS! With-out being imitative, Shake Some Action takes death-defying leaps in-to the days of '68, proving that the Flamin' Groovies can rock with the best of them (meaning the Stones, the Byrds, the Beatles, the Kinks, etc.). Finally, some magic is In the music.
