Friday Video: “Shake Some Action” – The Flamin’ Groovies

The Flamin’ Groovies did their best work prior to the ’80s, including the original version of “Shake Some Action,” from ’76. By the time of this video, the only remaining original members were guitarist Cyril Jordan and bassist George Alexander, accompanied here by a couple of hired guns. Which makes the clip above way more fascinating than any FGs footage from the ’60s or ’70s could be–it’s a group of dudes who, by degrees, seem to think they’re all in a different band. Or the Ramones, if C.J. Ramone had replaced Joey.
