Hot Rockets – Planet In The Sky
(Cargo Records – 2021)
Full-on Metallizing punk rock trio from Whitby, North Yorkshire (a fave place of mine I must say) who deliver up a dozen mouth-watering cuts from the seaside town of Captain Cook.
They comprise of the HR Brothers of course that consist of Eef (Bass), Paul (Drums) and Steve (Bass/Vocals) and recorded & mixed by Gary Pennick at H.R.INT.HQ. Highlights include the opening 'Radar'; 'Masterplan' that mentions the Nazis and the Chinese'; 'Monster' where he wants to shoot all the class; the cool as hell 'Local?' which I kinda get to be honest and the humorous 'Mr. Remote Control'.
Crank it up and annoy the neighbours – hey maybe some will like it!
