Top 50 Debut Albums - No.5 "Here Are The Sonics" The Sonics (1965)

I mentioned The Stooges as predating Punk but this next band beat them to the punch by a good 4 years ...

A blistering album that doesn't let up from start to finish. Every track is a real corker and I absolutely love it.

Gerry Rosalie's voice is wild & raw, unfettered howling of the highest order. The drumming is incredible & the guitar sound low and dirty.

I saw them live last year for the second time. Despite most of the band being in their late 70s they rocked as hard as any band I've seen and really blew the roof off.
