_______________

The mid-'90s saw the emergence of the Detroit-based garage punk outfit Rocket 455. Enduring numerous lineup changes — their 2001 lineup includes Mark Walz (vocals), Jeff Meier (guitar), Marco Delicato (guitar), Kenny (drums), and Steve Nawara (bass) — Rocket 455 specializes in high-energy, three-chord rock à la their Motor City ancestors (Stooges, MC5, etc.). The band released their first single in 1994, leading to further singles and appearances on compilations, plus the '97 6-track EP Sees All, Knows All, Tells All, and their 2001 full-length, Go to Hell, on Get Hip Recordings.
