"Not our blood group"

A russian question: I was reading the book A Mountain of Crumbs, about growing up in St Petersburg in the 60s and 70s. As a teenager in the 70s the author and her friends would say "he/she's not our blood group" to mean they didn't have much in common with that person. Is this something people still say? Is it a common phrase, or really dated 70s slang or something really specific to the author and her friends? Googling "группа крови" either gives me scientific info, or the Kino song.
