Ponderosa Stomp covered in NY Times

Jon Pareles covers the Ponderosa Stomp for the New York TimesPonderosa, a New Orleans Festival of One-Shots and Shoulda-Beens:

But there are lives beyond the footnotes. Musicians turn to other groups or jobs, and recordings linger, awaiting rediscovery. The Ponderosa Stomp finds the musicians behind the vinyl relics, and on the Stomp’s two stages many of its performers defied gray hair and wrinkles to belt 50-year-old songs with rowdy intent.

This year, on Wednesday night, the Stomp reunited the singer Roy Loney and the guitarist Cyril Jordan, the two original songwriters of the Flamin’ Groovies, a fuzz-toned, post-psychedelic, pre-punk San Francisco band; they had not performed together since Mr. Loney left the band in 1971.

GLONO covered the Stomp back in 2002 when Scotty Moore, D.J. Fontana, and James Burton all played together: That’s all right now Mau-Mau.
