Legendary American rock and roll group, formed 1963 in Tacoma, Washington, counting as the pioneers of proto-punk and garage rock. They played in several local dance halls and in high schools, until Buck Ormsby, bass player of The Wailers discovered them.
They recorded two LPs with Ormsby that were released in 1965 before disbanding in 1969. Raw garage classics including Cinderella and He's Waitin'. The Sonics also give Louie Louie their unique treatment. Punk before punk.
