About the show

Playing tracks by

Little Richard, Rufus Thomas, The Sonics, The Contours, The Wailers and more.

Released in 1965, The Sonics' debut album, "Here Are The Sonics", contained four originals and eight covers, mostly famous soul and rhythm'n'blues tracks, with a song by local heroes The Wailers thrown in for good measure. But if the source material was well known, the overhaul these songs were given was something else entirely. Recorded on a two track tape recorder, with a single microphone to pick up the drum kit, the songs were souped up and supercharged: rough proto-punk bursts of energy that sounded like they were splattered with oil and gasoline.

This Saturday, June 18th, The Sonics are playing the Royal Festival Hall in London. For the aftershow, we're hosting a club night based around "Here Are The Sonics", where we'll be playing every song from the record over the course of the night, alongside songs by the bands that inspired them.
