Twanging Tuesday # 39
Today's twanging sound comes from a band I've featured a several times over the last years. The Flamin' Groovies were an American rock band which reached it's peak in the seventies when they were named as a band that made punk and new wave possible. I think this is too much honor for them. They were just a regular rock 'n' roll band who are able to play in various kinds of genres. Not too bad, but their influence in modern music was taken too high. Anyway, they were a band that played some real great guitar-heavy songs. This one is one of their songs I like much because it's just reduced to some simple riffs on the guitar. Lyrics and the rest doesn't mean much. It's just the sound of the guitar - and it's worth in my opinion to be featured in this series.
