The Pocket Rockets (the name is arbitrary in its meaning, coined just for the sake of a band name) started off playing in a small bed room in East Los Angeles, California. At the beginning, since it being the first band many of the members had joined, the trio produced innocent, and minimalist sounds. Ralph, Lyndon, and Chris have know each other most of there lives through the attendance of the same schools and decided to start a band in the summer before sophomore year of high school. Through the years though, the band developed their sound through a combination of experimental guitar sounds, catchy bass rifts, and, simultaneously, steady and fluctuating drum beats, though still retaining that innocence so many bands loose through their development. Their music consist of many inspirations, mixing in varying inspirations of each member into a collective, unified, and spacey sound. Inspirations range from bands like Interpol, The Strokes and even The Misfits. Their inspirations, though, do not register in their music, at least not at the surface. They have a spacey sounds with echoes of arcade videogames’ soundtracks. You can label their sound as uncanny, in the sense that it sounds both unfamiliar and familiar at times. The Pocket Rockets where one of the first bands, although do not get much credit for this, to change the east Los Angeles backyard scene from being an absolute domain to punk and thrash bands, creating an environment where the Indie bands where accepted, praised, and flourished. In their short existence the band managed to get many notable shows and radio play on the now defunked Indie 103.1 and a set on KXLU through word of mouth. .Now the Pocket Rockets have recently had a chance to share their music and experience through the release of their debut single “Golden Gloves 1902” released through the newly established Sonata Cantata Records, headed by producer and former Monsters Are Waiting and current Eve 6 member Jon Siebels
