The Sonics, fronted by Gerry Roslie's banshee vocals, blow-torched the mists of Tacoma in 1966 like the fiery exhaust from a jumbo-jet. With their trademark scorched-earth guitar sounds, they created a mind-numbing assortment of classics: "You Got Your Head On Backwards," "Like No Other Man," "Psycho," "The Witch," and reinvented garage rock powerhouses like "I'm A Man," "Diddy Wah Diddy." No one has done it this raw ever since!

      ON COLORED VINYL NERVE-CRUSHING 1966 SINGLE BY GARAGE-PUNK LEGENDS! If one were forced to name one song that exemplifies the Sonics' revolutionary garage-punk sound, one would have to choose the band's nerve-crushing, soul-shattering 1964 landmark "Psycho." Boasting a drunkenly careening sax, a rampaging rhythm section and a wailing, throat-shredding vocal, this enduring classic is paired here with the attitudinal anthem "Maintaining My Cool," which is widely regarded as one of the crowning...

        NERVE-CRUSHING 1966 SINGLE BY GARAGE-PUNK LEGENDS! ON COLORED VINYL The song that originally put the Sonics on the map is the immortal underground anthem "The Witch." Recorded in July 1964 and driven by a bulldozing volley of drums, a brutally insistent guitar/sax riff and a possessed Gerry Roslie vocal, the song offered a darker, nastier alternative to the relatively well-groomed sounds of the British Invasion. It's prime, primal Sonics mayhem, with a sublimely swaggering B-side in "Like No...

          ON COLORED VINYL NERVE-CRUSHING 1966 SINGLE BY GARAGE-PUNK LEGENDS!For their first Jerden single, the Sonics invoked their bluesier influences and their wisecracking lyrical sensibility to come up with the world-class rave-up "You Got Your Head on Backwards." Meanwhile, the fearsome fivesome reveals a hitherto-unheard sensitive side on the ballad flipside "Love Lights," which is as radical in its own way as the band's rockers. In their mid-'60s heyday, the Sonics pioneered a wildly aggressive,...
