Released: November 1964

The debut single from Tacoma, Washington's The Sonics is creepy as its title suggests, romping along on a honking riff intercut with frenzied surf guitar freakouts. Home state radio backing made 'The Witch' a major local success and allowed the band to chuck out a few more grimy garage rock sides before a split in 1968 and a place in grunge folklore.
