The legendary Pacific Northwest band The Sonics performed live at Easy Street Records in Seattle in April 2015. The concert was recorded by radio station KEXP in Seattle.
The Sonics hard-edged sound has been a long-lasting influence on punk and garage music internationally. Past and present members of The Sonics, who appeared at the Easy Street Records event included Gerry Rosalie (vocals & keyboard), Larry Parypa (lead guitar), Rob Lind (sax), Freddie Dennis (bass & vocals) and Dusty Watson (drums). Andy Parypa, founder of The Sonics, dropped by as well. On this set, “The Witch,” Mark Pickerel of Screaming Trees sat in for Watson and Ben Shepherd of Soundgarden played bass for Freddie Dennis.
Technically, feedback in the soundtrack has been mostly eliminated and lip sync problems have been corrected.
