DJing for the Flamin’ Groovies @ The Scala 02.07.13

July 4, 2013

As an impressionable youth I was knocked flat by a double header of the Flamin’ Groovies and the Ramones, London Roundhouse, July 4th 1976 (The Stranglers were third on the bill so it was just short of a perfect evening). That night the Groovies were terrific, and I have followed their subsequent adventures with great interest . This gig was their first in the UK since 1987 and I was delighted to DJ for them and the support, The Bermondsey Joyriders. Here are the records I played:
