Sacramento, CA-based indie-pop favorite Rocketship was the brainchild of singer/guitarist Dustin Reske, who formed the group in 1993 with bassist Verna Brock, keyboardist Heidi Barney and drummer Jim Rivas. After releasing the classic single "Hey Hey Girl" on the influential Bus Stop label, the group recorded 1996's acclaimed A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness for Slumberland; the original line-up then dissolved, with Reske continuing Rocketship essentially as a solo project. The "Honey, I Need You" single followed in 1997; two years later, Reske resurfaced with the ambient-influenced twelve-inch Rocketship's Garden of Delights. ~ Jason Ankeny
