Rocket Recordings celebrates its 25th Anniversary with a very special compilation vinyl
Operating from a 1998 launchpad in Bristol, Rocket Recordings‘s questing vision has made them pathfinders for a particular kind of psychic terrain. The label may have been founded on disparate and dissolute passions, yet its stubbornly uncompromising ethos has always been to push beyond boundaries into areas which even the true heads have thus far never ventured. To celebrate a quarter century on the outer realms of exploration, naturally these voyagers have some special ventures planned, with one of these being a vital celebratory compilation collecting together eight of their current roster, all offering full-throttle salvos of metaphysical salvation.
Simply titled Launch300, this limited edition Bandcamp and vinyl-only compilation features exclusive and unreleased tracks by Centrum, Gnod, Goat, J. Zunz, Och, Shit & Shine, Smote and The Utopia Strong. The record comes packaged in beautiful original artwork by the infamous French 70’s artist Philipe Caza, that has been exclusively licensed for this release. Launch300 measures out the widescreen horizons of Rocket Recordings as it embarks on the next quarter century – a label with its feet on the ground and its head mapping out a defiant course for the unknown. Get on board.
Pre-orders of Launch300 will open on April 7th and will be available via the label’s Bandcamp page.
