Know what I like about the Flamin' Groovies? Some of their stuff is almost impossible to date. I heard "Road House" today, from their LP Flamingo. In different parts, it's got the pace of '77 era punk rock, a lot of mid-seventies era guitar licks, and an drum heavy ending that lasts about half the length of the song. I'm not saying anything about the release date. In the event that you've never heard it, it it's better that way. (After you hear it, there's a link to the Wikipedia entry for the album below. The date's there.). I'm not saying that it's some sort of earth shattering masterpiece, it's just that I like it's timeless sort of quality. You might be able to narrow it down to a decade, but that's about it. There's a few others down there just to round things out.
