|Grown Up Wrong! Records is thrilled beyond belief to announce two forthcoming releases by quite possibly our favourite band in the world, THE FLAMIN’ GROOVIES.
Announcing an upgrade reissue of the longlost
Flamin’ Groovies collection I’ll Have
A… Bucket Of Brains.
Documenting the band’s stint with United
Artists Records in London 1972.
Grown Up Wrong! have reissued the 1995 EMI collection
I’LL HAVE A... BUCKET OF BRAINS, which collects all
the recordings the band made for United Artists in
England in 1972 - primarily with Dave Edmunds at
Rockfield in Monmouth, Wales - including “Slow Death”,
“Married Woman”, “Tallahassee Lassie”, and two
songs that would remain in the can until later in the
decade, “Shake Some Action” and “You Tore Me
Down”. This is the period that saw the band transition
from punky R&B and rockabilly-inspired roots rockers to
flashy Stones-types, on their way to becoming
Beatles/Byrds/Stones-inspired power pop greats.
This long-lost collection supposes the 1972 Groovies
album that never was, and this reissue comes with
greatly expanded packaging, including the original liner
notes by Groovies superfan and Bucketful of Brains
publisher Jon Storey alongside a new essay by fellow
Groovies superfan and Barracudas guitarist Robin
Wills. As an extra bonus, we also include a reprint of an
over-the-top original Nick Kent feature on the band, first
published in 1972 in the UK underground paper Frendz
and never-before reprinted.
