The Groundhogs Live DVD Coming Next Month

Eagle Rock will release The Groundhogs' 'Live At The Astoria' DVD on September 18th. Here is the official word:

Filmed in London on February 20, 1998, with audio in Dolby Digital Stereo, this 12-song 81-minute excursion into the blues has guitarist/vocalist T.S. McPhee, bassist Eric Chipulina and drummer Pete Correa celebrating the legendary bluesman Howlin' Wolf [1910-1976] while on tour in support of their Hogs In Wolf's Clothing album. Starting and finishing with songs from that album, the concert—the first such Groundhogs show ever filmed—also spans 30 years worth of material.

The Groundhogs formed in 1963. Their 1968 Scratching The Surface debut, with "Still A Fool" (included here) introduced an eccentric jam-happy band of Brits who became legendary for stretching their songs to interminable lengths. They disbanded in '76, reformed in '85, and by the time of this '98 show, had honed their craft into a razor-sharp no-frills blues blast of classic rock'n'roll proportions.

Audiences on both sides of the Atlantic learned to love them as they not only served as backing bands for such notable blues stars as John Lee Hooker and Champion Jack Dupree but recorded 20+ albums that fused an eccentric sense of humor with hard rock, plenty of blues and hippie shuffles.
