The Radio Rockets return to Earth to do their first live gig…
Your favorite cherry-flavored rock junkie was lucky enough to get invited to the first live show by former Earache frontman August Henrich (above, center) and his new band, the Radio Rockets. The show, opened by The Electric Kisses, took place at a private party at The Living Room in Shoreline on Saturday night. The band expertly fuzzed their way through a 40 minute set full of new material that your Mother would hate. Because let’s face it, you’re Mom’s taste in music sucks.
The Rockets take a somewhat different direction than Henrich’s Earaches, but still permeate the same blood-curdling elements you would expect from an old school punk like Henirch. Henrich’s former Reckless Bastard band mate, guitar-slinger Mark Stobie (above, left), rounds out the Rockets lineup along with Justin Butrick (above, right) on bass and time-beater, the excellent Tommy Jezierny, on drums.
When the PA’s got unplugged and the actual radio went on, Seattle‘s prince of punk, Brian Foss was just introducing the bands timely new single, The American Lie on his weekly show, Sonic Reducer. Sad that you missed this show? Look for the Radio Rockets out and about the NW later this year.
