Product Description:

PSYCHO-SONIC is a 29-song retrospective of garage-rock band the Sonics, whose name was inspired by the Boeing aircraft surrounding them in their hometown of Tacoma, Washington. The collection includes the Sonics' first single, "(She's a) Witch" -- which reportedly holds the record for the best-selling indie single in the Northwest -- plus two live versions of the song.
Liner Note Author: Peter Blecha.
Recording information: Audio Recordings, Seattle, WA; Griffith Studios; Wiley.
Photographer: Jini Dellaccio.
In an era when the raw sounds of '60s garage-rock heroes the Sonics have been featured in an SUV commercial, it's possible to underestimate the fierceness of their straight-for-the-jugular attack. That is, until you hear the quintessential Sonics compilation, PSYCHO-SONIC. Here are 29 tracks of garage-rock grandeur featuring Tacoma's favorite sons in all their unfettered glory, tearing into a mix of blues, R&B, proto-psychedelia, and frantic rock & roll that's often gotten them labeled as "the first punk rock band."
