"This was the last the world heard of Groovy--until now. Their house of ideas wasn't spent by any means--as of 1981, another session was planned under the general description 'a man sprays a Ford Fiesta brown' but that never came to pass. A sea-change was signaled with the Buzzcocks' break-up, Pete Shelley's subsequent solo career and energy going to other projects. However, even as these events were unfolding, recordings were made on a porta-studio at Pete's place that further realized the Groovy direction. After the pubs closed, Pete brought back a motley crew of usual suspects and special guests, broke out the synths, drums and what-have-yer attitude, resulting in a wealth of additional material that provided private listening pleasure for the Groovy alumni over the years. Culled from Francis Cookson tapes, these pieces make a fourth Groovy installment entitled Strange Men in Sheds With Spanners that features a bent towards more disciplined rhythm pieces scored with a very purposeful array of synthetic sounds -- truly the lost next new wave of Groovy, finally crashing on our ready shores in 2011."
