The Details

From the annals of Detroit music history, we're pleased to be able to bring you the first ever vinyl release of Rocket 455's 'Go To Hell' compilation! Originally compiled as a CD only release on Get Hip Recordings in 2001, this LP collects Rocket 455's singles and a large percentage of the band's recorded output.

Formed in 1992 after the breakup of the Nervobeats, Rocket 455's first lineup included Mark Walz, Jeff Meier, Dan Kroha, Marco Delicato and Tim O'Connell, going on to later include Robert Mulrooney (Bootsey X), Kenny Tudrick, Steve Nawara, and Chris Fachini. The band went on to release several 7" singles-including the first release on Detroit's Italy Records-along with a 10" EP released by Get Hip. Not only does this release collect most of Rocket 455's released recorded output, but several rarities are included, including 'Go Baby,' 'The Grass Is Green,' and an unreleased version of 'Johnny Lawless'. Also included is a two-sided insert sheet with extensive liner notes and a band lineage chart.
