The Sonics: Here Are The Sonics

Gavin Martin, New Musical Express, 5 July 1986

MUDDY WATERS, he said, "I'm smokin' TNT, I'm drinkin' dynamite/I hope some schoolboy will start a fight." Maybe Washington's The Sonics were the answer to Muddy's plea when they sang "Some folks like water, some folks like wine/But I like the taste of straight strychinine".
