Smoke Notes

Spawned from the remnants of the MC5 (Fred 'SONIC' Smith), The Stooges (Scott 'Rock Action' Asheton) and rock heroes The Rationals (Scott Morgan) in the mid-70s, Sonic's Rendezvous Band were the ultimate high energy Detroit rock'n'roll supergroup. Their songs have inspired and been covered by countless groups over the years, yet in their life time they released one solitary 7" single on a small local label. Since then, that single 'City Slang' has become an absolute icon and a small number of elusive releases have continued to put more of the band's music out there.

Recorded live in front of 3000 Ramones fans (who they opened for that night) in Detroit on January 14th 1978, this set includes scorching live versions of iconic SRB tunes like City Slang (which has been covered by the Hellacoptors and which gave it's name to the iconic indie label), Electrophonic Tonic, Asteroid B-612 and Sweet Nothin and more.

This scorching live album is the first such release that will be readily available to NZ audiences and will be the only thing in print apart from a boxset out of the UK.

Thurston Moore was so enamored with it he named his band Sonic Youth in honor of Sonic's Rendezvous Band
