As a big fan of your blog (I've discovered countless fantastic albums here), I wanted to give something back in the form of my own old (late '90's, early naughts) band Rocket Park's two albums.

I'd describe the music as "eclectic pop rock with frequent progressive rock leanings (of a melodic/symphonic/compositional nature moreso than virtuosity)". The guitarist wants to be Jimmy Page, the drummer wants to be Keith Moon, and the keyboardist (moi) utilizes an arsenal of vintage keyboard sounds rivalling Rick Wakeman's stage setup circa 1973. The songs, production and harmonies may remind one of Electric Light Orchestra, and Mellotron junkies (of which I am one) are advised that the second album ("Television") features the string and flute sounds we love so.

Pleased listeners interested in owning physical objects and/or rewarding our efforts can buy either album at CDBaby.com, but if you don't, that's fine as well. We're much more interested in having a discerning audience listen to and, hopefully, enjoy our music.

Rocket Park "Teenage Folklore" 1999




Rocket Park "The Effects of Eating Too Much Television" 2000
























Yours in the joy of music and the freedom to listen,

Sincerest thanks to Lizardson for slithering this into the hands of the music fans. I would really love to see some comments of the post-listening variety, and please keep it honest! ;)

I've heard from a number of people who said they don't have RAR, couldn't run it on their computer, et cetera, so I've changed all my upload links to ZIP archives for everybody's convenience. Enjoy!
