A Record Collector's Guide

Rocket from the Crypt


Drunken Fish DR-02 7", released July 1992 (U.S.)

Rocket was apparently busy during the summer of '92. This one was a one-sided MC5 cover...brutal record. 500 copies on gold vinyl, some (I have heard 50) of which came with Mardi Gras-esque beads. And then...there was the full color sleeve version. A collector told me long ago that he had one of these but never sent any pictures, so it remained a rumor on this site. Well, not anymore. There were twelve of these made - it was a color-copied sleeve, numbered on the back. The majority of these went to the band or stayed with the label, but a couple of them have gotten out.
