Sonics Rendezvous Band – “City Slang / Electrophonic Tonic” 7”
A blast of primal rock and roll energy from members of legendary garage punk Detroit bands of the 1960s: Fred “Sonic” Smith of MC5, Scott Morgan of The Rationals, Gary Rasmussen of The Up, and Scott Asheton of The Stooges. Almost unkown during their time (1974 – 1980) the band had only enough money to mix one song, “City Slang”, so it was pressed on both sides of the single. One side was labeled mono and one side stereo although both sides were identical. This version on Easy Action Records contains the track Electrophonic Tonic on the flipside.
