Poetry Grenade - Rocket (1990, Sonic Boom)

The gentle weaponry suggested in the moniker of this female-helmed Twin Cities quartet is an appropriate metaphor for the astute guitar-pop enshrined within RocketPoetry Grenade's polite panache may pull a few punches, however they aren't shy about throwing their proverbial muses around.  The band's overarching penchant generally occupies the same sonic strata as college rock contemporaries Tsunami and Vomit Launch.  And while not markedly innovative, PG usually pinpoint the sweet spot between contemplative and something considerably more rousing.
