an excellent collection of righteous, raucous, r&b-influenced vintage garage rock’n’roll from the seminal Washington quintet.

in the running for the hotly-contested title of ‘the first punk band’, the sonics’ riotous brand of rock not only changed the musical landscape of the 1960s pacific northwest but influenced some of rock’s great innovators such as the cramps, nirvana, the white stripes and the fall. this limited black friday special release includes faithful reproductions of the classic albums ‘here are the sonics’ and ‘boom’ as well as a third disc of rarites, a 36-page LP-sized booklet detailing the oral history of the band from all five original members as well as dozens of previously unpublished images from the archives of celebrated photographer Jini Dellaccio, and an 18” x 24” colour poster.
