Groundhogs - Thank Christ For the Bomb (1970 - heavy and bluesy)

Groundhogs - Thank Christ For The Bomb Lead by Tony (TS) McPhee, this band played a brand of melodic heavy blues, that at times had more conventional song structions and other times moved into prog/pscyh teritory, and in either case the Groundhogs tore it up with their nearly un parralled playing. The guitars hand pick notes like sound like they were made just for the song, the drums are often all over the place making use of every available part of the instrument. Amazing vocals.

There's a chance that on first listen, the Groundhogs migh not realy "do it" for you, but there more of a sit-and-listen type band thay will require some consideration before their impact is fully able to sink in.

Bands that i could compare them to.... um....: Stray, Blue Oyster Cult.... maybe. Sorry im doing a horrible job at discribing this band. There sort of unique and not so unique at the same time. You've just got to get into them i guess.
