Way back in the halcyon days of rock, there came a trio of
'superheroes' known as the Groundhogs, riding the blues boom
into unchartered territory, they gained a reputation as one of
the most dynamic live acts around, and are influential and
inspirational to this day. The classic line-up of Tony McPhee,
Ken Pustelnik and Pete Cruickshank toured the world for 6 years
straight, including seminal shows with the Rolling Stones, John
Lee Hooker, John Mayall and Canned Heat, and at the legendary
1970 Isle of Wight festival along with Jimi Hendrix. In this
time they produced 4 renowned albums: 'Blues Obituary', 'Thank
Christ for the Bomb', 'Split' and 'Who Will Save the World'...
Now Ken Pustelnik brings you a new and exciting line-up -
Groundhogs, playing that classic material with verve and power,
and giving performances of energy and excitement that are as
fresh and relevant to the modern audience as the originals were
back in the day...
