“Lonely Surfer” is the signature ‘tune’ of the earliest set of Cactopus ‘songs’ and attempts to sonically mimic the experience of surfing alone in conditions beyond ones ability. “Rocket Up A Star” should have been a hit, especially since the talented drummer took over the primary vocal from the ‘singer’. Written at the close of the cold-war, the song reworks the consensus story of the Cuban Missile Crisis to a tale of phallic military libido.
This release shares a Release Number with “Zero Tolerance.”
“Rocket Up A Star” b/w “Lonely Surfer” was released by Blackjack Records in 1991.
