Cyril Jordan’s 1960s San Francisco band the Flamin’ Groovies proselytised for mop-top proto-punk well into the 1980s. Here, he’s backed by musicians including the Plimsouls’ bassist, Eddie Munoz, and Blondie’s Clem Burke, on drums, for 14 dragster-paced rhythm-and-blues numbers. A muscular cover of the Beatles’ Any Time at All sits comfortably among Jordan’s own songs, from the jet-stream fade of Tomorrow Never Comes to the feral garage-punk pastiche of The Real Thing. Evolver has the same yearning harmonies and adrenaline rush that characterised the Groovies’ finest albums, but the strike rate here is higher, if anything, than in much of Jordan’s supposed prime.

Check out Dirty Water Records for the newest Magic Christian CD! Pre-release discount!
From the description:
Something of a rock’n’roll supergroup, Magic Christian comprises Cyril Jordan (formerly of The Flamin’ Groovies) on guitar, Clem Burke (Blondie) on drums, Eddie Muñoz (The Plimsouls) on bass, and Paul Kopf on vocals – four musicians who share an enthusiastic and energetic new approach to classic sounds of the past, bringing them very much up to date.
