Well before Nirvana et al created this idea of Seattle being this raw and unhinged place for alternative music, a whole bunch of great bands from the ‘60s Northwest were setting up the template. Bands like the Kingsmen, The Wailers, and Paul Revere and the Raiders created raw, DIY, garage-based music. Arguably the greatest of all was the Sonics, one of the great bands from the ’60s. Punk before punk existed, with cracking singles such as ‘The Witch’, ‘Crazy’, and ‘Strychnine’. About to tour New Zealand for a show in Auckland on 18 April, I have a chat to vocalist Gerry Roslie.
