'We Can't Stop Now To Think About The Past, We're Moving To Fast': An Appreciation of the Flamin' Groovies on Sire

Dave Laing (Australia), Ugly Things, August 2006

(Note: the following piece was written prior to the recent release of the wonderful UK 2CD set At Full Speed: The Complete Sire Recordings, which brings together ALL of the Groovies Sire recordings, including the tracks from the original UK vinyl edition of Jumpin' In The Night that were left off the 2005 DKP issue of that title. This is the set to get.)
