Access All Areas: The Sonics

From Access All Areas, 12:00 pm on 24 March 2012

The Sonics were underground pioneers of American garage rock and the North West Sound. Name-checked by Kurt Cobain, The Fall, The White Stripes, the Black Keys and most of the grunge generation, these guys were recording songs so wild they sent white picket fence-owning Americans running to their fallout shelters back in the '60s. For Access All Areas Trevor Reekie talks to original vocalist Gerry Roslie about their incredible legacy and their journey back to the stage.
