It is nearly 40 years since Groovies frontmen Cyril Jordan (lead guitar and vocals) and Chris Wilson (rhythm guitar and vocals) toured with a new LP to promote. Excitingly three of the best tracks tonight – Let Me Rock, I Want You Bad and (especially) What The Hell Is Goin’ On – came from the new Fantastic Plastic album. Elsewhere the set was thoroughly refreshed with new opener Down Down Down and first encore Jumpin’ In The Night representing fresh blasts from the Groovies illustrious past. New rhythm section Chris Von Sniedern (bass) and Tony Sales (drums) are finding their feet and the additional backing vocals they supply are welcome – theme tune Shake Some Action was refreshed by everyone singing. A packed Under The Bridge benefitted from a top-end sound system and clear sightlines. Support band Theatre Royal impressed with catchy songs, and a purposeful stage act.
