The point of garage rock has always been to get in, raise a ruckus, and split the scene. The genre will never die, but the musicians tend to move on as they age, while rambunctious youngsters step in to take their place. The Sonics, on the other hand, were always a breed apart. In the 1960s, they rocked the hardest, wrote the punchiest songs, and wore the best damn fuzzy sweaters. After three decades of fragmentation, they roared back to life in 2007. Since then, they’ve collaborated with Mudhoney, gotten name-checked by LCD Soundsystem (“the Sonics, the Sonics, the Sonics, the Sonics”), and put out a shockingly fine return-to-form, This Is the Sonics, in 2015. Not bad for a little indie band from Tacoma. KATHY FENNESSY
