Is there someone familiar with the GROUNDHOGS?

It's a hard rock band from the 70's,
this song sounds very much like doom for the guitars, theme...

Oh, hell yes! Great British blues rock band! I have "Thank Christ for the Bomb", "Split" and "Hog in Wolf's Clothes". Split is my favorite...the Split tracks and "Cherry Red" are great. I've never seen this video before...buncha chimps going crazy around a sort-of obelisk...seems fitting?

Groundhogs are awesome. A good find back when I started taping my dads albums. Not long ago bought a box set type deal of five of their albums Blues Obituary through Hogwash. Pretty cheap too.

Most people say Split is the best but I might go for Who Will Save The World?.

If I had a top ten most criminally underrated 70s hard rock acts, obviously they'd be up there.

great band... i've seen Earthless cover "Cherry Red," and here's a cool cover of "Sad Go Round" by Current 93, featuring Nick Saloman of the Bevis Frond on guitar.

Stellar band. My friend from the band Kindling hooked me up with a copy of Split on LP in return for a favor.

On the lookout for the other albums of that era on wax.

I highly encourage folks to check them out!
