Rocket from the Crypt
Rocket from the Crypt
Rocket from the Crypt is an American rock band from San Diego, California, originally active from 1989 to 2005.

The band gained critical praise and the attention of major record labels after the release of their 1992 album Circa: Now!, leading to a recording contract with Interscope Records. They experienced a surge of popularity with the release of the albums Scream, Dracula, Scream! (1995) and RFTC (1998), accompanied by numerous vinyl singles and EPs released on independent labels. However, album sales were not as high as expected and Interscope soon turned their attention to higher-grossing acts. The band left the label, and shortly thereafter drummer Atom Willard departed the group.

After a period of inactivity in 1999 and 2000, during which Reis formed Hot Snakes and Sultans and launched his Swami Records label, the band signed to Vagrant Records and recruited new drummer Ruby Mars. They experienced a revitalization of creative energy and released two more albums, but were not as prolific as in the past.

Over the next few years the band members became increasingly involved with other projects and Rocket from the Crypt became less the focus. They decided to disband in 2005, playing a sold-out farewell show on Halloween in their hometown of San Diego.

The band reunited in 2011 for an appearance on the television program Yo Gabba Gabba!, and have scheduled a reunion tour of Europe for 2013. On March 31, 2013, the band played a free secret reunion show at Bar Pink in San Diego's North Park neighborhood. Less than 200 people attended, likely because the show was not officially made public until one hour before the 6:30 pm showtime. This "resurrection" show on Easter lasted about 80 minutes, to the delight of the lucky few fans who were tipped off. The band boarded a 6:00 am flight to Europe on April 1, 2013, to begin their European tour.

Mrs. Magician
Mrs. Magician
Mrs. Magician hails from the pilings of various San Diego piers. Like those pilings, their sound is encrusted with salty hooks drenched in waves of reverb and barnacled, fuzz. These pop songs are massive and betray the beach shack bummer of the summer posture that these hoodad's exude.

"Strange Heaven" is the band's debut album and magnifies the cacophonous lullabies of the their four previous singles. This record is for connoisseur's of fuzz, distortion, echo and reverb who prefer their noise to be tempered liberally with minor key, bubblegum and (at times)haunting melody. Recorded and produced by John Reis (of Hot Snakes, RFTC, Night Marchers, Drive Like Jehu) in the same way of the old masters in order to achieve a more musical hiss and crackle. The result is a timely and hopefully timeless artifact.
