The Rockets (Aus) - Single and Cassette
They featured Roddy Ray'da and Boris Sudjovic (Scientists, Cheap Nasties etc) - highly regarded dudes. The lead singer (Alan Stewart) had a bulk unique voice and the guitarist (Peter Johnson) was darn powerful.
They also released a single 'Mean Mistress/Little Donna' (included here) - the A Side is pretty well much one of my favorite singles of all time (big call - it's really that good!). Have also included the track 'Automatic' from the compilation LP 'West' (put out by local radio station 6PR).
Also in the can could be some live bootlegs if I get my act together. By the by, there is also a VHS live concert floating around that's worth checking out if you're a fan. This is a tragically overlooked band (especially live) - 'bout time something official was released methinks.
