Labels: The New Strychnines
In June 2000 the Seattle Experience Music Project managed to put together a show which billed many now legendary '60s Northwest garage bands such as the Wailers and the Kingsmen. Still, they couldn't get what is probably the best of them all, THE SONICS, to reunite. So, Scott McCaughey (Minus 5/Young Fresh Fellows/REM) started to get an all-star Sonics fans´ band together, so that they could perform at the show and represent the original and almighty Sonics. Boooom!! Here are THE NEW STRYCHNINES! And who could dare to play the songs of the wildest and greatest garage-punk band that ever existed? The New Strychnines are 75% of Mudhoney (Mark Arm, Steve Turner, and Dan Peters), with Tom Price (from Gas Huffer and Monkeywrench), Big Kahuna (from Girl Trouble), Scott McCaughey (from The Young Fresh Fellows and The Minus 5), and Craig Florey. Here are 16 tracks, including all the Sonics classics!!
