At the turn of the century, Vinita Joshi, the head of the Rocket Girl label, released an inaugural compilation, neatly titled “A Rocket Girl Compilation”, aimed straight at the sharpest ears the world over. It was a box that, both for it’s packaging and the sounds contained within (a mix of pop psychedelia with a 60’s, space rock, slowcore and neo-krautrock aftertaste), ended up becoming a must-have back in 2001.
Now, almost a decade after that first panoramic view, Rocket Girl announces the arrival of “3... 2... 1... A Rocket Girl Compilation”, a new compilation which reveals how things are now. A double album, it features 27 tracks, the first one including the best moments in the history of the label (with songs by Lilys, Robin Guthrie or Television Personalities, to name a few) and the second containing previously unreleased tracks by some of the label’s past and present bands. “3... 2... 1... A Rocket Girl Compilation” will hit stores on 24th January 2011, digitally and on double CD. Var.- “3... 2... 1... A Rocket Girl Compilation”
