    The wormhole works in mysterious ways. I read the article about these Wackers or whatever, and the name of the Flamin’ Groovies leapt out at me, a band I never heard. So I checked it out on the tube and they’re LOTS of fun! Maybe you should consider putting up a little bit of your presumably vast collection of Flamin’ Grrovies material?

    Still haven’t heard the Wackers…

      Keep meaning to. You can hear the Wackers on the streaming player.

    Hot Wacks is a classic. A very strong, if short, LP. Most of side two (tracks 6-12) should be enjoyed as a single track, of course. If your mp3 player is seamless enough, and you don’t use “shuffle play”, you’re good to go. Otherwise, do what I did, and rip or reassemble into a 14 minute “Side Two Medley” a la Abbey Road (or most of the good Moody Blues LP’s).

    Their tune “Captain Nemo” is worth seeking out, too. Off a Bomp records compilation, as I recall. And the post-Wackers album by the Dudes, We’re No Angels, has some killer tunes, as well. (Not to mention an ill-conceived Disco-Abba-Busby Berkeley vibe to the cover graphic.) “Saturday Night” had the misfortune to come out after a similarly titled Bay City Rollers single, but “Fuel Injection” shoulda been a hit.
