Genre: Blues RockPsychedelic Rock
The Groundhogs were not British blues at their most creative; nor were they British blues at their most generic. They were emblematic of some of the genre's most visible strengths and weaknesses. They were prone to jam too long on basic riffsthey couldn't hold a candle to American blues singers in terms of vocal presenceand their songwriting wasn't so hot. On the other handthey did sometimes stretch the form in unexpected waysusually at the hands of their creative forceguitarist/songwriter/vocalist T.S. (Tony) McPhee. For a while they were also extremely popular in Britainlanding three albums in that country's Top Ten in the early '70s.

The Groundhogs' roots actually stretch back to the mid-'60swhen McPhee helped form the groupnaming it after a John Lee Hooker song (the band was also known briefly as John Lee's Groundhogs). In factthe Groundhogs would back Hooker himself on some of the blues singer's mid-'60s British showsand also on an obscure LP. They also recorded a few of their very own obscure singles with a much more prominent R&B/soul influence than their later work.

In 1966the Groundhogs evolved into Herbal Mixturewhich (as if you couldn't guess from the name) had more of a psychedelic flavor than a blues one. Their sole single"Machines," would actually appear on psychedelic rarity compilations decades later. The Groundhogs/Herbal Mixture singlesalong with some unreleased materialhas been compiled on a reissue CD on Distortions.

After Herbal Mixture foldedMcPhee had a stint with the John Dummer Blues Band before re-forming the Groundhogs in the late '60s at the instigation of United Artists A&R man Andrew Lauder. Initially a quartet (bassist Pete Cruickshank also remained from the original Groundhogs lineup)they'd stripped down to a trio by the time of their commercial breakthroughThank Christ for the Bombwhich made the U.K. Top Ten in 1970.

The Groundhogs' power trio setupas well as McPhee's vaguely Jack Bruce-like vocalsbore a passing resemblance to the sound pioneered by Cream. They were blunter and less inventive than Creambut often strained against the limitations of conventional 12-bar blues with twisting riffs and unexpected grinding chord changes. McPhee's lyricsparticularly on Thank Christ for the Bombwere murkysullen anti-establishment statements that were often difficult to decipherboth in meaning and actual content. They played it straighter on the less sophisticated follow-upSplitwhich succumbed to some of the period's blues-hard rock indulgencesfavoring riffs and flash over substance.

McPhee was always at the very least an impressive guitaristand a very versatile oneaccomplished in electricacousticand slide styles. Who Will Save the World? The Mighty Groundhogs! (1972)their last Top Ten entrysaw McPhee straying further from blues territory into somewhat progressive realmseven adding some Mellotron and harmonium (though the results were not wholly unsuccessful). The Groundhogs never became well-known in the U.S.where somewhat similar groups like Ten Years After were much bigger. Although McPhee and the band have meant little in commercial or critical terms in their native country since the early '70sthey've remained active as a touring and recording unit since thenplaying to a small following in the U.K. and Europe.
