SONNY VINCENT AND THE BAD REACTIONS
Sonny Vincent has been contributing stellar Rock ‘n’ Roll for over 30 years now with the legendary TESTORS as well as his solo work. Putting the TESTORS together in 1975 and releasing only one single (Reissued April 21st, 2012 on WINDIAN RECORDS for Record Store Day), the band broke up soon after the NYC Punk explosion. Over the next 20 years, Sonny released many solo albums with a revolving cast and toured the states and Europe constantly. Early 2000’s brought a whole new generation of degenerates to the sounds of the TESTORS with a record release of never before heard recordings, and a feature on the favorable Killed By Death series. SWAMI RECORDS soon swooped in and released a ‘Complete Collection’ and took Sonny on tour with Rocket From The Crypt (RFTC was the backing band). After that tour, Sonny moved to Germany and released more records as a solo entity, and continues to tour. In 2011, WINDIAN RECORDS released ‘Two Sides Of Death’ 7” single, which included two previously unreleased exclusive live tracks, recorded in 1978 to a handheld tape machine. WINDIAN continues to keep the TESTORS and Sonny’s music available with the Record Store Day First Exclusive reissue of the classic ‘Together / Time Is Mine’ 7” single. The record also includes an exclusive never before heard studio recording from 1978. Sonny has also just wrapped up recording another new record that features members of Sex Pistols, Damned, and The Stooges.
Sonny is making his first trip back to the states to tour since 2003, and his BAD REACTIONS feature members of Ex Humans, Carbonas, and The Sorrows. This pumbling lineup will be playing select TESTORS songs and works from Sonny’s extensive solo career.
