|"Subtitled: Live From Punk Ground Zero, Cleveland 1975. Fire Fidelity is thrilled to bring you this historic reissue by Ohio legends Rocket From The Tombs, The Day the Earth Met the Rocket From the Tombs. The Cleveland five piece (consisting of David Thomas and Peter Laughner, later with Pere Ubu, as well as Cheetah Chrome and Johnny Madanksy, later with the Dead Boys) formed in 1974, played only a handful of shows, never put out a record, and just 12 short months later called it quits, but in 2002 previously unheard demos, live recordings and bootlegs were unearthed culminating in enough material to make this album. These rare 1975 recordings come from three sources: the RFTT Rehearsal loft on Jul 18, the Picadilly Inn on July 24 and the Agora on May 5, and all serve to bear witness to the undeniable fact that Rocket From the Tombs brand of proto-punk represents ground zero, and remains unmatched even 37 years later. Essential! Housed in a full-color gatefold sleeve; with download code." -Fire Fidelity|
