Flamin' Groovies is an American rock music band that started in San Francisco in 1965, led by Roy Loney and Cyril Jordan. After the Groovies released three albums, Loney left the band in 1971. He was replaced as co-leader by Chris Wilson, and the band's emphasis shifted more toward British Invasion power pop. The band signed to United Artists Records in 1972, releasing just three more singles until 1976.
A lot had happened with the Flamin' Groovies in the nearly five years that separated the epochal Teenage Head album and their return to American record racks with Shake Some Action. The Groovies lost their record deal with Buddah, lead singer Roy Loney had quit the band leaving Cyril Jordan as uncontested leader, and they had spent a lot of time in Europe, building a significant following in the United Kingdom. As a result, the Flamin' Groovies on Shake Some Action almost sound like a different band, albeit one driven by a similar obsession with the utter coolness of pre-hippie rock.

Flamin' Groovies first recorded "Shake Some Action" in 1972, but the song was not released until their 1976 album of the same name, which was produced by Dave Edmunds, who made sure to speed up the tempo of the track and push the vocals. According to Cyril Jordan, the descending phrase he played on lead guitar was overdubbed about six times. Edmunds would also put remote microphones around the studio, to fatten up certain passages. The Shake Some Action album and its follow-up, Flamin' Groovies Now, also produced by Edmunds, did reasonable well in England but suffered from.
