Biography

1) ROCKETS (Also known as Crystal) history starts in Paris (France), in the year 1972, when they were known under the name CRYSTAL. In 1974, they changed their name to ROCKET MEN (or ROCKETTERS) as five aliens, bald, with grey eyes, silver skin and space suits, recording the single ‘Rocket Man’ produced by Claude Lemoine, who would become their producer ‘til 1983.

In 1975, they changed their name in ROCKETS and recorded a single ‘Future woman’. In 1976, their first LP entitled, ‘Rockets’ was released in France, and the group launched a series of phantasmagoric live shows which involved vocoder, lasers, coloured lights, smoke and a bazooka fighting flames three . Their following LP ‘On the road again’ (1978), is released in a large number of countries. In the following years they released two masterpieces of “space-rock”: Plasteroid (1979) and Galaxy (1980). After two more LP (P 3,14 in 1981 and Atomic in 1982) they changed their look (no more silver painted aliens), formations and music style, and the following albums weren’t so successful. In 2000 Fabrice Quagliotti (keyboards) brought back the band name, with all new members. In 2003 came out a new CD (Don’t Stop) with some new songs in the “classic rockets style” (Rocketsland, Communication) and other dance remixes not so appreciated by most of their fans. Now the band is still alive and a new work is forthcoming.
