SONG OF THE DAY Sonics – The Witch

The+SonicsSome would say that The Sonics were one of the first proper punk/garage bands to emerge out of the 60’s and that their aggressive sound, brash presence and unconventional style was both a defining and pioneering feature.

Over the years their music has been a major influence on punk, garage, grunge and rock with various bands and artists citing them as a chief inspiration including Nirvana, Bruce Springsteen, The Cramps and the Fall.

They performed a mixture of covers including Richard Berry’s ‘Have Love, Will Travel’ which was also later covered by the Black Keys, but also produced original compositions such as today’s fast and fierce track, ‘The Witch;’ what a growlingly grand sound! Listen above.
