Corentin Skwara sets out to film the Sonics on their European tour in 2015.

The Sonics, the legendary 1960's rock band that pioneered garage, grunge and punk rock altogether, having disappeared for nearly 40 years reform in 2007 after a commercial for Land Rover (of all things) reminded the world of their cult music. 

In this narrative, Corentin (or: Corey) reveals their incredible story, and also a little bit of his own, as he travels more than 5000 kilometres across Europe to get an interview for his film about the seventy-some years young Sonics.

When Corentin came to me with this pitch, I needed no convincing. The show, and its making (what a dream team!), was an absolutely incredible and delightful experience that plunged all of us, as well as the audience, in journeys through time and space, contributing, in my opinion, a little to the history of rock music itself.
