Details:
Limited edition Remastered reissue of this GREAT, rare, long out-of-print debut by these poppers from Seattle! Although Seattle is known as the home of Grunge, many forgot the rich tradition for driving catchy pop. Not unlike The Fastbacks, The Model Rockets played high-octane power-pop, hooky, and smokin'!
Unless you are from Seattle itâs unlikely that you remember Stumpy Joe, and even if you are, thereâs still a good chance you never heard of them. In 1993, several members of that ill fated re-formed as the Model Rockets. Led by guitarist/lead vocalist John Ramberg, the Model Rockets released this, which was produced by ex-Young Fresh Fellow Scott McCaughey, on Lucky Records. The band described its sound as power pop with a roots music flavor. Their musical influences included the Beatles, the Byrds, Cheap Trick and 1960s soul music - all good things for sure! "This album is probably between the best 5 of the 90's.
Unbelievable songs and attitude, very American rock." "A nearly-perfect pop CD. John Ramberg is revealed here as one of America's finer pop composers!" - Cynthia Rose
In case you missed it the first time around, you shouldn't let it pass you by this time! A classic! GREAT!!!!!
