Your last chance to cop Rocket From the Tombs' "The Day the Earth Met..."
Rocket from the Tombs was a '70s Cleveland band that contained the seeds (personnel and material) for Pere Ubu and the Dead Boys. For years, their demo and live recordings circulated among collectors until Smog Veil released a CD compilation, The Day the Earth Met Rocket From the Tombs, in 2002. Now the label's offering their last copies of the disc for nine bucks. Last chance to hear the 'riginal versions of "What Love Is," "Ain't It Fun" (which I'm listening to now to woodshed for the Stoogeband), "30 Seconds Over Tokyo," "Sonic Reducer," and "Final Solution" before they go to the oblivion of inflated collector prices.
