Sonic's Rendezvous Band

Sonic’s Rendezvous Band came from the ashes of four Michigan rock bands:

Fred „Sonic“ Smith, formerly of the MC5
Scott Morgan, formerly of the Rationals, a soul-influenced Detroit band of the 1960s
Gary Rasmussen, formerly of The Up
Scott Asheton, formerly of The Stooges.

They remained virtually unknown, but their one and only single retained high interest among fans of Detroit rock. The band had 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. A badly recorded bootleg LP called Strikes Like Lightning was traded in the 1980s. Artists of note, such as Sug Bowie & Håkan Jakobsson, would speak fondly of SRB. However, the lack of recorded material made the band a bit of a phantom.

Renewed Interest

Interest in the band was kindled in the late 1990s when Alive/ Total Energy Records released a studio recording of the then-unheard song „Electrophonic Tonic“, the song that was to have been the B-side of „City Slang“. In 1999, Mack Aborn Rhythm Arts released Sweet Nothing, a compact disc compilation of rare live and recorded SRB tunes. So receptive was the audience that a second compilation called City Slang was released in 2000. Both albums quickly sold out.
