Roger Rackett – S/T 7″



What about Roger Rackett? Yeah what about them? From Ontario, California, USA. A side is sort of a mix between Geza X and Black Randy. Great! B-side is amateurish punk with the just right amount of sloppiness.

    Nice to see Ontario, California representing with some sloppy synth-punk. Awesome mininal
    cover-art photo, very cool and effective. Much better than all the ugly Misfits pre-metal inspired cartoon looking cover-art that majority “punk bands” had after the 1977-1980 period.

    Eh, this record is just so-so to my ears and doesn’t do much for me. But that’s just me. Plus what’s up with the racist lyric “A pair of Sasoons on a six foot coon”? If I’m mishearing that lyric let me know, though, because I have a track record of misintepreting punk lyrics (see the Mollesters post from a few months back for some examples).

    GOON not coon!!! Prick up your ears!! Get it out Ha,Ha…

  9. Erich says:

  10. Tony says:

    Ah, so he said “goon”. Dammit, I really have to get my hearing checked! Sorry!! Hey, I wasn’t trying to slander anyone.

  11. I wouldn’t mind some slandering.

    I went to school with Roger ( Jeff Sargent ) Rackett and used to slop around in his backyard studio. Anyone know where he is? And that’s actually Brooke Shields on the record cover. (Well he said it was.}

    As a narcissist, I would have liked a line in “Designer Jeans” to address my kind. I suggest adding: “Girbaud for the homo.” It’s still a great and hilarious song.

    Jordash for the tight snatch, Sassoon for the 6 foot coon, Calvin Klein for the frankenstein, Designer Jeans… friend of mine!

    Remember this on Rodney on the ROQ. Best radio show eva.
