Music Monday: The Sonics – “Psycho”

posted October 27, 2014 11:50 am

Garage punk is North American invention. Other groups around the world songs filled with teen angst, snarling lyrics, and guitars and organs inspired by R&B, but true garage punk comes from the US. The Sonics, from Tacoma Washington are one of the greats. “Psycho” works as a base template for garage’s highlights: brute simplicity, wailing screams, and lyrics so tight you’ll be humming them days later. “Baby, you’re driving me crazy / I’m going out of my head / And now I wish I was dead / Psycho!”
