The Day The Earth Met The Rocket From The Tombs

ROCKET FROM THE TOMBS The Day The Earth Met The Rocket From The Tombs (2002 US 19-track CD album offering a fascinating glimpse of the Cleveland Underground scene in the mid 70s - the Rockets never released anything in their brief lifetime, but they served as an apprenticeship to the key members who went on to form Pere Ubu [David Thomas & Peter Laughner] and the Dead Boys [Gene O'Connor a/k/a Cheetah Chrome and John Madansky a/k/a Johnny Blitz - towards the end of the group, they also featured additional vocalist Steve Bator a/k/a Stiv Bators, although he doesn't feature on any of these recordings], serving up an uncompromising slab of surging proto punk; these demo and live recordings made between February and July 1975 are the closest we'll ever get to an authentic Rockets longplayer!
