Ace Records: From Seattle To The Midway Delta

The Northwest city of Seattle produced some of the furthest out sounds and spawned the wildest of the wild in the shape of the Sonics. Some 20 years on and Mickey and the Milkshakes with Billy Childish brought it back home in the wake of the UK’s Punk Rock explosion in the unlikely setting of the Medway in the Thames Delta, just south of London.
