Nardwuar vs. The Sonics



Eminating from Tacoma Washington, The Sonics unleashed a monster two headed single The Witch / Psycho in 1964, which stands as one of the greatest, if not the greatest recording of the punk variety ever documented. If you don’t believe that, you will after listening to it! Although well known in the Pacific Northwest during the 60s, in the years since their break-up in 1967 scant information surfaced as to what The Sonics were up to. They were like ghosts. Legends blowing in the wind. This was pretty much remedied with their reformation in 2007 when they started doing interviews again. It took a while, but after 6 years of trying, I finally was able to ask The Sonics questions I had fantasized about for decades, when they made an appearance at the Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver, BC, Canada!

Nardwuar vs. Cynthia Plaster Caster

Cynthia Plaster Caster… Pretty self-explanatory. What can I say? She has been making moldings of rock cock for over thirty years. I talked to her at the Velvet Elvis in Seattle where she was doing a spoken word performance accompanied by Miss Murgatroyd on accordion and Russ Forster (of 8 Track Mind zine) on keyboards. Thanks to James of Up Records for setting up this encounter. By the way, after the interview, Cynthia did remember casting some Canadian dink (the roadie for the late ’60s Toronto white boy r’n’b combo, The Mandala). I find this very important! Who else would have cared about these lonely Canucks’ cocks indirectly helping document the real unsung history of rock ‘n’ roll… but, drum roll please, Cynthia Plaster Caster!?
