Roy Loney & the Phantom Movers — Singer/guitarist Roy Loney, who was the frontman for the Flamain Groovies during that band’s rockabilly/R&B-inspired incarnation, continued in a similar vein in his solo career, rock’n’rolling with the devotion of a true believer. After leaving the Groovies in 1971, Loney assembled the Phantom Movers and maintained the rootsy spirit he had brought to the band, emphasizing raw, unpretentious American grit immune to the whims of the commercial scene.
