    The Rocks ‘We Got It’ / ‘The Bomb’

    £2.99

    ‘Specialising in off-the-wall rock’n’roll and delighting in the most shambolic of live shows, The Rocks’ second single throws a subtle groove into the mix (‘We Got it’) before going super-cool and obscure (The Bomb’). Given time this self-destructive art offensive could do great things.’ Rocksound

    ’A track that not only declares it’s confidence, but demonstrates it. A bouncing Motown bass and tickling drums define the groove, before James Taylor’s Princey falsetto enters, then letting his larynx rip into the chorus. Combined with the thrashier ‘The Bomb’, this is a real statement of intent from one of the few British garage hopefuls.’ X-Ray

    Tracklisting:
    1. We Got It
    2. The Bomb
    3. Save The Wolf

    Release date: July 2003 (originally also released on hand stamped 7 inch vinyl SR 01092)

    The Rocks ‘Everybody In The Place’ / ‘I Won’t Need You When You’re Dead’

    £2.99

    ‘It’s the best debut of the year, and will probably remain so. It’s institutionalised England gone mad. It’s everything that means everything. It’s loud. It’s hope. It’s god. And it’s fucking alive man, it’s fucking alive..’ The Fly

    ‘They have the most pissed sounding vocalist since Shane MacGowan.. When he screams ‘JUST F**KING LEAVE IT’ during ‘Everybody In The Place’ it’s easy to imagine that he really is in the middle of a fight, and it’s quite likely that he started it.’ Kerrang

    Tracklisting:
    1. Everybody In The Place
    2.  I Won't Need You When You're Dead

    CD contains extra track ‘Sicko’

    ‘Quite good British melodic hardcore-guitar stuff. Sure to be signed up by a major and spoiled, just like Bivouac before them’ Time Out

    ‘Title and pleasant surprise of the fortnight honours go to Bromide. This ep is in turns edgy (proof) melodic (where it fell) and passionate (non committal) bringing to mind other fine 3-piece outfits Husker Du and S*M*A*S*H. Which is nice’ Ripple Mag (Leicester Uni)
