Poem Rocket - Felix Culpa CD



NYC's Poem Rocket are one of my favourite unheralded noise/art rock bands. They released a number of singles in the mid-90s (see their site for a full discography) that were compiled on 1995's Felix Culpa (on PCP Entertainment). They've also released three albums to date, 1997's Infinite Retry on Parallel Time-out, 2000's Psychogeography, and, according to their new website, a double CD in 2007 called Invasion! that I plan to download from eMusic very soon. Poem Rocket create a lovely din, at times recalling Nation of Ulysses ("Eject"), Charalambides ("The Animal Planter"), Jessamine ("Contrail de l'Avion"), Hood ("Saint Sebastian's Halo"), Drugstore ("Pretty Baby"), and fellow NYers Bardo Pond ("Blue Chevy Impala").

Poem Rocket has some great music. Was lucky enough to see them live a few times in the 90's.

A subtly essential compilation, particularly since it contains the Small White Animal / Milky White Entropy 7", which is my favorite 7" ever...
Their '07 album is quite disappointing, though, compared to their previous works. It's too "mature."
