They are undisputedly THEE power pop superstars of the underground era playing together at last - Cyril Jordan, Clem Burke, Eddie Munoz and Paul Kopf. Together, the sum of the parts is Magic Christian. The parts have influenced so many bands and have carved out a special place in the annals of popular music. Individually, they were founding members of The Flamin Groovies, Blondie and The Plimsouls.

Texan Eddie Munoz who plays guitar in the Plimsouls switches to bass in Magic Christian, forming a magic rhythm section with Blondie's Clem Burke, who is not just punk rock's Most Valuable Player, but if there is rock n roll royalty, he's Prince Charming, to be sure.
