Jerry Mohr is the Sonics' Jerry Roslie reincarnated - the primal scream, the relentless pounding garage songs. The very best of the garage revival bands of the 80's, they escaped the nostalgia pit that most revival acts fall into and inhabited the spirit of 60's garage/punk with utter fearlessness and wrecklessness, becoming their own thing, their own sound.
