Rocket From The Tombs Interview

Baltimore's City Paper interviews Cleveland's Rocket From The Tombs, and the band rages against today's popular music:

"We rage against the ordinary of the underground-- people like Snoop Doggy Dogg and Manic Street Preachers," Thomas says. "Britney Spears is weird avant-garde. Mainstream is the flow of history. Madonna and [Christina] Aguilera are a stagnant pool beside the stream of history. You want to be in the main stream, not in the scummy backwater--you want to be where the water is pure and vibrant."

The band's 2002 release, The Day The Earth Met The..., should be named a national treasure for its influence on rock musicians of the 80's and 90's.
