View Detail

Paul Groovy and The Pop Art Experience are a garage-rock band who formed in the early '80s, performing with the likes of The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Pastels, The Mighty Lemon Drops, The Shop Assistants, The Prisoners and The Cannibals. The Groovies have had previous releases appearing on Cherry Red Record's C86 - The Deluxe Edition, 3CD Boxset. Singer Paul Groovy was part of the early Creation Records scene, helping Alan McGee hand-fold and wrap 7" singles and chronicling that early scene in his Groovy Black Shades fanzine (hence his Paul 'Groovy' moniker, given to him by McGee himself). Paul also sang with the Creation house band backing him at legendary venues like The Living Room and Ambulance Station. Paul and guitarist Steve also have their own radio shows, drummer Jane was in The Green Hornets and Tone E wrote the book Twenty Missed Beats. It's a very groovy garage band indeed!

Limited to 300 hand-numbered copies, the band use Beatles harmonies and key changes, and with their stand-up girl drummer, they have often been compared to The Velvet Underground. They add 70s Punk sensibility to a 60s Paisley Underground vibe. Side A's He's A Liar packs a hard punch with a swing, and Side B's hard-hitting version of You're Gonna Miss Me propels you to the 13th Floor, with The Groovies doing what they only know best.
