SONG OF THE DAY The Sonics – Santa Claus

  The Sonics festive offering, Santa Claus, is pure vintage.  Musically this could be any one of their fantastic psych-fuelled songs with its gruff garage-rock guitar and robust vocals, but the lyrics are the give-away that it’s a Christmas tune. The track … Continue reading
