Rocket Roll

by Space Cretins

Super-cyber, high-flying punk rock'n'roll with a neon kick for the good times, with a sound that owes as much to Kiss, the Misfits, and the Ramones as it does to the original Space Commanders Ziggy Stardust & the Spiders From Mars.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hailing from the aptly named "Jet City" Seattle, WA, the Space Cretins bring a heavy dose of super-cyber, high-flying punk'rock'n'roll with a neon kick for the good times, with a sound that owes as much to Kiss, the Misfits, and the Ramones as it does to the original Space Commanders Ziggy Stardust & the Spiders From Mars. A sound that takes the energy of punk, the snottiness of glam, and the groove of 80's L.A. sleaze rock, which when combined gives you... spaced out, mega-freakin', high-octane, righteous rock, baby, yeah!!!

According to the Space Cretins charter, there are four requirements to becoming a band member: 1) must be attractive to the ladies 2) must love big,dumb Rock 3)must be a great performer 4) must be attractive to the ladies... The Space Cretins members include veterans of the Seattle punk/grunge wars -- Paul Ace Diamond Blow (guitar, vocals: ex-Suffocated, Berserkers, and Ace Diamond Bimbos); Markass Starkiss Karkass (Bass: ex-Berserkers, Pissdrunks, Undisputed Heavyweights); and Danger Dayne Bam Bam (drums: ex-Ace Diamond Bimbos, Northwest Breeders)

Sick and tired of the negativity and depressing nature of the bi-polar Seattle music scene, and inspired by a chance encounter with William Shatner in a Hong Kong kareoke bar (in which Shatner convinced Blow to start a "super-cyber" rock band) Paul Diamond Blow hooked up with his former band-mates Danger Dayne and Markass Karkass to put the fun back in today's Rock. The Space Cretins aren't trying to stimulate brain cells or impress with fancified riffage, no, just putting the party, attitude and swagger (and good songs!) back into the rock'n'roll leather pants. "It's a spiritual thing," says Blow. "But we're much more than just another 3-chord rock band. We're a 3-chord band with a Plan..."

Space Cretins... the choice of a far-out generation. Hop aboard for the ride...

Pocketfull of Change review, Feb 2006
An amazing parody of a Ramones meets 80s hard rock band. "We're Superstars on angeldust." Sweet. "Girls we know give us Hong Kong blow." Okay, I'm feeling ya. There's a space odyssey thing going on there...very Ziggy, yes, the songs are very energetic rock and roll, one part Ramones and possibly dipping into the Kiss catalog on "Luv Transmission" (of course, in a hilarious nod to the Dolls, all of the "loves" are spelled "L-u-v" in the aforementioned and in "Electric Luv"). The songs are short and don't drag on which tends to be music of this nature's Achilles heel. These guys are so f--king high and boy, do they love to sing about it. I could seriously see the Space Cretins headlining a show on the Sunset Strip in 1988. Absolutely fabulous! -Vincent Principle (Pocketful of Change magazine)

Verbicide Magazine review
This is an amazing album. Seldom do I feel like I just did blow off a hooker's ass while she pays me for the ride of her life. Now come on, that is a ski trip worth attending! That in a nutshell, is ROCKET ROLL, a 10-song salute to the religion of excess. This release is the latest and greatest installment by the Space Cretins in their quest to spread all the filth they can muster. Each song is packed with a ferocity that demands a second listen. Should the album have a few more solos? Of course! But come on—who can play a solo when you are nearly blacked out drunk and the only thing on your mind is that prayer that we all have that the "‘three girls in the audience really are legal, cuz God knows they’re willing?" And to be honest, who fucking wants a solo when Paul Diamond Blow (guitar/vox), Starkiss Karkass (bass/vox) and Danger Dayne (drums) come to melt your face?

This is one of the best albums I have heard in awhile and has not left my car for about a month. It was the soundtrack to a traffic violation and a particularly amazing drinking binge I went on. If you want to hear something truly amazing, get this CD. (NeaI Page)

Razorcake review
This is really good! Awesome high energy poppy glammy punk. Sounds like Zowie Fenderblast from the Lee Harvey Oswald band fronting the Groovie Ghoulies, oh yeah!! Songs just come marching at you one after another, although “Star Kiss” is a cool mid-tempo tune that breaks things up. Really cool glammy vocals and strong punk songs. Fans of the Dickies, Zolar X and Black Halos will wanna be all over this. –Mike Frame (Razorcake Magazine, 2006)
