The Flamin' Groovies’ story goes all the way back to 1965, when the band began as the Chosen Few in their hometown of San Francisco, California. After a name change and a self-released 10-inch album called Sneakers, which sold amazingly well, the band caught the attention of Columbia Records, who signed them and released their first real album, Supersnazz, on the Epic label. Their next two albums were released on the Kama Sutra label: Flamingo, and the now revered classic Teenage Head.

Lead singer Roy Loney then left the band and lead guitarist Cyril Jordan moved the group to England, with Chris Wilson (formerly of Loose Gravel) taking over as front man. They continued their style of straight-ahead guitar-driven rock n' roll but this time with a more 60's rather than 50's influence. A few singles on United Artists, recorded at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Wales with Dave Edmunds producing, followed in the early '70s. In '76 they signed to Sire Records, who released three true gems of power pop: Shake Some Action, Flamin' Groovies Now, and Jumpin' in the Night.

Shortly afterwards, Wilson moved to England and joined the Barracudas, and the Groovies continued into the early '90s touring Australia and Europe, putting out a fine-but-overlooked album called Rock Juice, and then finally called it quits. Jordan formed a new band called Magic Christian while Wilson released solo albums in Europe.

Jordan and Wilson reunited in 2013 and have been touring for the past four years, both nationally and internationally, and released their first single in decades last year on Burger Records, Crazy Macy.

In 2017, Jordan, Wilson and newly added bass player Chris von Sneidern and drummer Tony Sales toured in support of the band’s new album “Fantastic Plastic”. The band remain unstoppable as they embark on an international tour again in 2018. Fans have been delighted with what is being called «a dream set list,» including original songs the band has never performed before onstage.
