Flamin’ Groovies’ coolly driving new Burger Records single, “Crazy Macy,” is the latest release in a 50-year career of reviving the spirit of early, straight-ahead rock & roll. The San Francisco band were a power-pop force before the genre even had a name, and they were prescient enough to invite the then-unknown Ramones along on landmark tours of England and California in the mid-’70s. While the current lineup doesn’t include founding guitarist Roy Loney, it does feature longtime members Cyril Jordan, George Alexander and Chris Wilson. Although the late spitfire Paula Pierce was the heart and soul of The Pandoras, this new reunion of surviving members nonetheless works because replacement singer Kim Shattuck (The Muffs) has a similarly feral vocal attack. San Diego’s Loons also are retro-minded yet energetic garage-rock true believers.
