My 15-year-old cousin really surprised me today. Suddenly I found out that he has really good taste in music. He played me some songs from the Sonics, a band from the 60s. They rocked!

Another band to add to my must-buy list.

...and of course I used this opportunity to push some White Stripes. He seemed to like Hypnotize, Broken Bricks, Fell In Love and the harder songs. Good. B) I'll burn him a compilation to get him hooked.

EDIT: Had to add something

YES!! I love them! Make sure you get the Sonics Boom and Here are the Sonics. They are one of my top five favorite bands ever. Great stuff. They were punk before punk was even called punk.

Yeah, I'll try, but I think they might be hard to come by. I suppose Psycho-Sonics will be easier and the one I'll end up with. Though I prefer original albums.. <_<

You know why I love these forums? Every time I discover new music, it is always someone's favourite band! It's so cool. People here are diverse.

You can try deepdiscountcd.com. I just ordered a CD copy of the Sonics Boom for like $10. And I got the CD version of Here are the Sonics from amazon. Of course they don't compare to the vinyl versions... :D

The compilation Psycho-Sonic has recently been rereleased in a remastered version, made from the original master tapes. It's supposed to sound a lot better than the previous version. I think I'm going to get that one. http://www.acerecord.../cdwikd115.html

I love The Sonics! I can't stop listening to Psycho. The howls are fantastic!

Psycho is an amazing tune. I highly suggest the Sonics, and if you're sceptical download Psycho and be hooked!

"Thw Witch" is one of the coolest songs ever.

Edit: It's so cool that I can't even type it right...

Once I danced to the Sonics and it was the most fun I ever had.

I don't really like The Witch though. My favourite songs of theirs are Do You Love Me? Psycho, Jenny Jenny, Louie Louie and He's Waitin.

Yeah I'd have to agree with that.
