Looking back to all those years from the early 80’s to nowadays, the rockabilly scene has delivered a whole view of styles of the genre from the most important European countries besides a small country in the south-eastern side… Greece! Hailing from Athens, THE ROCKETS are a hybrid of some of the catalyst local bands from 80’s and 90’s such as The Jive Rockets, Red Hot, Speedball and more. The band’s members having previously participated in similar combos they managed to experience themselves to that old-fashioned, but fresh, authentic 50’s rockabilly sound! They are mostly influenced from the typical English rocker outfits and hep-cat elegance! Each side contains one up-tempo rockabilly shot coupled with a moody, melodic tune that will surely steal your heart! Side One’s opening track “Love Struck”, is a brand new rockabilly hit and “Can’t Escape From Your Love” is a real country-rock’n’roll anthem with lots of nostalgia directly from the 50’s! As far as “Rockin’ Dream” is concerned, an alternate version of which has been included in “White Boppin’ Tower” (OSR-007) compilation, it is about thee smashing hit of the year! This powerful rockabilly outburst made THE ROCKETS real local heroes! Last but not least, “Ghost Highway” is a true taste of pure desperate rock’n’roll! Enjoy their debut mini album and keep on lookin’ forward for their upcoming full length album!
