Rob Moss And Skin-Tight Skin “Now With More Rockets”

Rob Moss played in GOVERNMENT ISSUE and in a bunch of other hardcore/punk bands in the 80s. Then looking for new things to explore, Rob stopped playing music before coming back in 2016 writing 70s glam/Proto-punk rock’n’roll songs that ended up on his first album “We’ve Come Back To Rock’n’Roll.” ” His new album “Now With More Rockets” was made with the help of 17 guest musicians and continues to explore the rock’n’roll path. Opening song “A Rocket Ship To You” is a gothy rock’n’roll song reminding of some of PETER MURPHY‘solo albums, then “A Donkey” and “Bloody Shoes” rock in a STOOGES way and songs like “Red Beans And Gasoline” or “Rock’n’Roll Ralphs” (a tribute to Hollywood’s famous grocery store!) are good rock’n’roll tunes with a bit of a RAMONES meets 50s rock’n’roll vibe . You’ll also hear a bit of psyche with “Richard Jewell”, “Two Slices Of Bread” or “All Over Town”. and a touch of NEW YORK DOLLS in “RIP Van Wrinkle ’85”. “Ink Blue Smoke” has a good 70s groove and then turns into an up tempo punk rock song while “I’m On A Rocket Ship (Heading My Way Back Home)” leaves us with some addictive proto-punk/glam. “No More With Rockets” is not only a tribute to Rob’s musical influences but also a genuine rock’n’roll record. /Laurent C.
