Since the mid 1990’s guitarist/vocalist JOHN SCHOOLEY has been performing CPR on a succession of raw musics—as of this moment in time, he’s the only person who can claim to have been a member of the Crypt, Goner, Sympathy For The Record Industry and 12XU rosters, which either qualifies him for a plaque or combat pay. While this label presided over projects as idiosyncratic as Schooley’s acoustic collaboration with Walter Daniels (2014’s Dead Mall Blues) or the electric Meet Your Death (2016), neither are sufficient preparation for John’s other one-man project, ROCKET 808. An ingenious mix of 1970's analog drum machines with raw guitar, this is less of a style clash and more akin to a minimalist tour de force. Like Suicide adding Link Wray as a third band member, Rocket 808’s debut single is an incandescent, noirish hint of what’s in store for a full-length album in early 2019.
