 A podcast for ugly lovers of bad taste rock 'n' roll!

Sonic Nightmares is a Rock & Roll DJ collective existing for over 15 years in Bern, Switzerland. The team been delighting fans of obscure Rock & Roll music since their first collaboration in 1995. First appearing on the Swiss scene at their own Bad Taste Rock & Roll Revue, the Sonic Nightmares crew focused their sound on very independent releases from the 1940′s til today. Underground sounds from every decade make the Sonic Nightmares sound eclectic, unique and extremely danceable.

This fierce quartet of rockin’ manics came together in the mid 90′s on Radio Rabe in Bern to produce one of the wildest shows that station ever heard. Specializing in a combination of ‘Bern Deutsch and California English’, the listener was driven through hours of extremely rockin music from all eras, hilarious comedy sequences mixed with interviews of musicians and label owners, as well as their famous ‘prank’ phone calls and ticket giveaways. The Sonic Nightmares Radio Show was always a wild listening adventure, even if you didn’t like their brand of music. After five years of pushing sounds and jokes through the airwaves in the midst of an electronic music explosion in Switzerland the Sonic Nightmares Radio team gave up their show deciding to focus on playing their records in clubs all over the country.

Thanks to the internet and the another new wave of international Rock & Roll interest, the Sonic Nightmares Radio team began creating a new type of broadcast that fits their needs, Podcasting. With the ability nowadays to listen & download their radio-like shows, now the world can listen in on the madness once restricted to local Swiss audiences. In 2006, The Sonic Nightmares team joined forces with GaragePunk Pirate Radio at to host their podcasts and have compiled over 50 new shows in a ‘easy to listen’ archive. Though focusing on their beloved music from the mid-60′s their show is often breaking down their own barriers and playing for the world a very unique collecting of modern and hard to find gems from all kinds of eras.
