Rocket Dolls frontWhen a band knocks on the door of URHQ proclaiming to be a mix of Def Leppard, Nirvana and Kings X you can bet your bottom dollar we are going to sit up and take notice of them, even if The Rocket Dolls have within their ranks a drummer who is the son of a multi-platinum selling guitarist, which could put a dent in their metal street cred (hmmm). Duly impressed we set the Brighton based trio the ultimate challenge, to map out their influences with just 13 songs to do it in, they did it in 12 making us wonder if this really is the Midnite Mixtape Massacre to end them all?
