If any garage band deserves a tribute then it’s The Sonics, the premier 60’s punkers. This Northwest wild bunch inspired loads of garage punk & revival bands from 80’s to these very days. Groups like DMZ, Fuzztones, The Headcoats, The Mummies, Swingin’ Neckbreakers or the hitmakers like The Hives, owe much to The Sonics raw rock’n’roll style. And yeah, there are loads of covers of Sonics tunes done by new generations of garage punkers. This Surfadelic compilation is a testimonial of that worship through the decades, it gathers most of the finest cover versions of Sonics classics as Strychnine, Cinderella, Boss Hoss, He’s Waiting, The Witch, Psycho and others. Although there is an ’89. comp. “Here Ain’t The Sonics” you already have heard for sure, this one is more complete and way better I guess, cause it’s made by Mr.Eliminator himself ya know. 26 trax of explosive garage punk action Sonics style done by new psycho generations . “Like no other men”, dig!!!

“Between the Lines” compiles, for the first time ever, all the original songs written by Groovies Cyril Jordan and Chris Wilson in the classic second version of the band. The Groovies gave themselves a major reboot in 1971 when a then 18-year-old Chris Wilson replaced Roy Loney as the band’s frontman and Cyril Jordan’s writing partner. This was the formation of the group that made that journey to England at the behest of UA, helping set the scene for punk and which, with a couple of line-up changes along the way, ended up signing to Sire Records and making three brilliant albums – Shake Some Action, Now, and Jumpin’ In The Night – before eventually running out of steam following Wilson’s departure in 1981. It’s the incarnation that headlined over the Ramones in London on July 4 1976 in London, but which then had to settle for being a massive influence on the nascent form of both power pop and all manner of ’60s influenced groups after the dictates of a post-punk world decide after the dictates of a post-punk world decided that their glorious rock’n’roll was not going to be the next big thing.”
