Rockets



Put Kraftwerk & DEVO in a swirly wind tunnel, and sprinkle some Disco Italo Vocorder space rock and you get.....

ROCKETS!

ROCKETS history starts in Paris (France), in the year 1972, when they were known under the name CRYSTAL. In 1974, they changed their name to ROCKET MEN (or ROCKETTERS) as five aliens, bald, with grey eyes, silver skin and space suits, recording the single 'Rocket Man' produced by Claude Lemoine, who would become their producer 'til 1983.
In 1975, they changed their name in ROCKETS and recorded a single 'Future woman'. In 1976, their first LP entitled, 'Rockets' was released in France, and the group launched a series of phantasmagoric live shows which involved vocoder, lasers, coloured lights, smoke and a bazooka fighting flames three.

Thanks for you intense concern..

But this is what I converted..

There is a possibility that Discogs might not have every Rockets release..
for I'm sure there are different variations of this LP.

Thanks again..
