It's no surprise, knowing how much both the > Groovies and producer Dave Edmunds respected Brian Wilson. I played Good Laugh for Brian Wilson when I got to hang out with him. No reaction at all. Later I found out the Groovies used to go over to his place in CA, but he never mentioned knowing them. Steve Harvey -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

The live shows were WAY different from the records. The bass player had a freakin MOHAWK the first time I went. They were VERY heavy metal live as they were strictly a trio without the benefit of the 4000 overdubs they employed in the studio. I still love the records though. I have all their CDs, and some are much better than others. One of the really weird things about them is their roots are extremely spiritual i.e. their early lyrics are biblically themed. Didnt affect the music though. If you have to hear just one track it would be "It's Love". If you hear that and can walk away, you're a better Beatlefan than I am.
