"The band recorded this album in Sydney, Australia in 1986 after an extensive tour of Australia and New Zealand. The Flamin' Groovies are on a mission from God and play with a soul and passion directly from their collective heart..."
Although a modest return by any measure, Cyril, bassist George Alexander and two new bandmates (P. Zahl , drums was involved in the Readymades, Tuxedomoon ,SVT, The Cowboys, The Yanks & J. Johnson : guitar, vocals was in SVT, The Yanks, Roky Erikson band )did record a new album in 1986: 'One Night Stand', which was done in one night (two, if you count mixdown) in an Australian studio, sounds live and contains shaggy roadhouse renditions of classic originals ("Shake Some Action," "Slow Death," "Teenage Head") as well as Paul Revere and the Raiders' "Kicks," the Who's "Call Me Lightning" and other covers. If not quite a record to cherish, a reassuring audible reminder that the band lives on — and that Jordan's heart is still in it. Trouser Press

Saw them a couple of times on that tour and they were great. Imagine how good the 70s line-up must have been. Thanks again.

Thanks Rambler!

I usually don't really enjoy it when bands re-record their old hits, but "Backtracks/One Night Stand" actually has my favorite version of Slow Death.
