Picking up where DMX Krew left off, Mount Sims' debut record paints a picture of the new wave renaissance with tongue planted firmly in cheek. Appearing to be a mildly fetish-oriented trio consisting of two girls and a pompous male lead singer, the band is actually the studio creation of sonic explorer Matt Sims. Does it work? The answer is a resounding yes; he manages to capture all the glorious excess and studio trickery of the genre's early-'80s heyday and inject soulful singing and hip-hop beats into the mix. Sims affects a voice that turns from an erotic groan to a falsetto croon in a heartbeat, but his straightforward delivery makes the moments of levity that much funnier.

Given the many stories of their crazed on-stage prowess and the frantic drive of their classic studio sides, fans of real-deal garage rock have often wished that someone had the presence of mind to make a decent-sounding live recording of Tacoma, WA, madmen the Sonics in their glory days. And, as it happened, someone did – a radio station in Tacoma, KTNT-AM, used to have a regular Friday night feature called Teen Time, in which they broadcast a live spot from one of the area's teen clubs. A guy in Seattle named Doug Patterson owned an Ampex reel-to-reel tape machine and frequently taped the Teen Time shows to collect songs for his own teenage band to cover, and two surviving tapes featuring the Sonics in action have been collected on Busy Body!!! Live in Tacoma 1964.

Long before they delivered the full blown crunch of The Witch and Psycho, the Sonics were cutting their teeth in Tacoma teen clubs! These crude 1961-64 sides were taped live at dances and at home, showing the heavy influence of their primo idols the Wailers and includes the ultra primitive A-Rab, the group's very first recording - raw!! These tapes were recently found in a Tacoma attic. This is their first appearance ever!
