The Sonics You've Got Your Head On Backwards/Love Lights on Blue Colored 7" Vinyl from Sundazed

In their mid-’60s heyday, the Sonics pioneered a wildly aggressive, distortion-laden style that set a widely emulated standard for propulsive punk raunch. Driven by the commanding, blood-curdling howl of Gerry Roslie and the raucous, screaming guitar of Larry Parypa, the Tacoma, WA quintet pioneered a pummeling, primitive and supremely infectious sound that served as the blueprint for multiple generations of garage, punk and grunge combos, none of whom ever quite managed to equal the Sonics’ feral ferocity. In the decades since the Sonics first made their mark, the band’s influence and mystique have grown steadily, with their relatively few recordings attaining mythic status amongst lovers of raw, undiluted rock ’n’ roll.

Now, Sundazed honors the Sonics’ awe-inspiring legacy with a tornadic trio of the band’s original vintage 7” Jerden label singles, all originally released in 1966 and now restored to their original vinyl glory and decked out in snazzy new picture sleeves featuring fab vintage photos.

For their first Jerden single, the Sonics invoked their bluesier influences and their wisecracking lyrical sensibility to come up with the world-class rave-up “You Got Your Head on Backwards.” Meanwhile, the fearsome fivesome reveals a hitherto-unheard sensitive side on the ballad flipside “Love Lights,” which is as radical in its own way as the band’s rockers.
