The Sonics
Formed in Tacoma, WA in the early 60’s, The Sonics broke ground and laid the foundation for the Pacific North West sound for punk, rock, and psychedelic acts, for generations to come.

‘Nighttime is the Right Time’ for the themes of drugs, evil women, and disturbing states of mind explored by these godfathers of garage rock on their classic records like ‘BOOM’, and ‘Introducing The Sonics’.

During their career, The Sonics shared the stage with legendary contemporaries like The Shangr-la’s, The Wailers, and The Beach Boys, but while Brian Wilson crooned ‘Don’t Worry Baby’, Gerry Roslie begged ‘Don’t be Afraid of the Dark’. Pushing boundaries, laying stages and then setting them ablaze.

Ladies and gentlemen, HERE ARE THE SONICS!

My Goodness
Driving Seattle based garage two piece with an upcoming 7" on The Lost Ark Studio's singles collection.

"My Goodness is a Seattle-based blues/garage rock band that consists of Joel Schneider (guitar and vocals) and Andy Lum (drums). The band has existed since 2011, playing predominately in the Pacific Northwest and releasing one self-titled album that same year. They were on hold for the majority of 2012, but with the recent addition of Andy Lum on drums, they have found a renewed purpose and is ready to move forward with a heavier, more aggressive sound. Somehow straddling the line between raw and refined, they don’t sacrifice technical precision in the name of punk rock: they strive to marry both.
My Goodness have been in the studio with esteemed Seattle producer Rick Parashar (Pearl Jam, Temple Of The Dog, Blind Melon) recording their second LP and have already released a 7-inch for “Cold Feet Killer” b/w “I’ve Got a Notion” in March 2012."
