Rocket from the Crypt

Apeshit at the BBC

Lipstick/Break It Up/When in Rome/Watusi '98/Panic Scam

Unofficial CD, released 1998

The title pretty much says it all. This CD surfaced very soon after the band made its triumphant return to the UK to promote RFTC in 1998. Recorded in July, and I am pretty sure I got it in Japan in August of that year. Excellent version of Lipstick, and the instrumental "Watusi '98" is one of my favorite instrumentals of all time. Wegi told me that Rocket was selling these when they were on tour in Germany in 1998. So...did they actually catch a bootlegger, as the story went for the two earlier 7"s, or did they have a hand in the production? Mysteries of the universe.
