Starbox - Let's Rockett  

(I had to get rid of the video game, as we were hotlinking it from the good people at and it was causing the page to have trouble loading.)

I think I'm going to do a series of posts on records with 'Lets Rock' in the title. I think I can manage about four or five. It's usually a mark of quality I find.

Producer Rick Tarbox had a couple of act's which rhymed with his lastname, Hotbox and Starbox included, both of which are great electro funk acts. Starbox's Let's Rockett has a not uncommon space travel theme, so instead of a picture I'm including this Space Invaders game, put your mouse over and play it if you have some time to kill. This is the hard hitting instrumental version.

    I agree, anything with variations of rokkit in the title track or vocal refrain make the body move...and thanks for the spaceinvaders flash, I could not resist! The thrill of hitting the saucer as the pitch intensifies must have been hardwired into me when I was a seventies kiddy, it only seems like yesterday that I was robbing the plastic string from fly-mo's mowers and using them to slide down the slot into free credit shangrila! I wonder who came up with the actual space invader sounds? I shall investigate. Love the Blog, an island of originality in a blogsphere of the banal.
