Listen to Lilydamwhite's Master F from Launch001



We have put the Lillydamwhite track 'Master F', which is taken from our first Rocket release (a split single with The Heads) up on Youtube as it was criminally not available anywhere online.

This track was the reason Rocket started 20 years ago. It was when we heard this track blaring out live when Lillydamwhite supported The Heads at The Louisiana in Bristol that the idea to set up a label to release this track was first hatched.

And for those who are unaware, Lillydamwhite featured the bass playing of one Gareth Turner who is now in the Rocket bands Anthroprophh and Kuro. 

Enjoy!
