Rocket Up A Star / Lonely Surfer

RocketUpAStar Download

“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.
