Groundhogs - Split (1970 - hard and heavy acid-blues)

Groundhogs - Split Due to the popularity of the the last Groundhogs post, Thank Christ for the Bomb, I'm going to post the next album buy this underrated band.

Admitedly I don't think Split is as good as Thank Christ, and even I'm suprised at the reasons why. Split is definatly heavier, noiser, and more rocking. All qualities that normaly turn me on. But for some reason, with this band i like their more melodic meterial better. Split does have the bands biggest hit, "Cherry Red" which nicely combines both hard rock and molodic elements perfectly. It sort of reminds me of the Golden Earings "Radar Love."

The first side of this album, the "Split"'s parts 1-4 are the louds tracks on here, but only "Split, pt. 2" realy sticks in your head thanks to a stong melodic part. Side 2's "Junkman" is similar - loud and heavy shifts into a nice back poarch melody. The last track, "Groundhog" is also a highlight sounding like authentic Delta Blues.
