FLAMIN’ GROOVIES : SHAKE SOME ACTION [SHAKE SOME ACTION, 1976]

Ποικίλοι χαρακτηρισμοί είχαν ακουστεί για τους Flamin’ Groovies εκεί πίσω στα ‘70s, από τον περί “Αμερικανών Stones”, μέχρι εκείνον που μιλούσε για “προάγγελους του punk rock”. Λόγια του αέρα, αυτό όμως δεν εμπόδισε το γκρουπ από το San Francisco να αφήσει πίσω του κάποια σπουδαία τραγούδια.
Όπως το
“Shake Some Action” που τυχαίνει να είναι ένα από τα πιο αγαπημένα μου όλων των εποχών.

Various labels had been given to the
Flamin’ Groovies back in the ’70s, from the “American Stones”, to the “harbingers of punk rock”.
Useless words, of course, but this did not prevent the group from San Francisco from releasing some great songs.
Like
“Shake Some Action” which happens to be one of my all-time favorites.

I will find a way
To get to you some day.
Oh, but I, babe, I’m so afraid I’ll fall, yeah.
Now can’t you hear me call?
Shake some action’s what I need
To let me bust out at full speed.
I’m sure that’s all you need
To make it all right.
It’s taken me so long
To get where I belong
Oh, but, oh, please don’t send me back that way, yeah.
For I will make you pay.
Shake some action’s what I need
To let me bust out at full speed.
I’m sure that’s all you need
To make it all right.
If you don’t dig what I say
Then I will go away.
And I won’t come back this again. No.
‘Cause I don’t need a friend.
Shake some action’s what I need
To let me bust out at full speed.
I’m sure that’s all you need
To make it all right.

    They have a really groovy punk sound. I am not familiar with the Flamin’ Groovies.

    Good fun!
    It was their moment, and they captured it.
