The Sonics Return!

Here's another report from SPB's occasional (and only!) correspondent, Andy Miracle.

Arguably the greatest garage/punk/rawk/r&b band ever, Tacoma’s The Sonics played their first gigs in nearly four decades when they recently headlined the opening and closing nights of Cavestomp 2007 (The Garage Rock Festacular) in New York. By all accounts they gave amazing, scorching performances and Gerry Roslie still has his awesome blowtorch of a voice.

This video, though not the best of quality, gives a pretty good idea of how hard they rocked. As of yet there are apparently no plans for any further shows but wouldn’t it be great if they played somewhere in the Sea/Tac area?
