BIOGRAPHY

Pocket Rockets are real live teenagers that live in the Washington, DC area. Carmen and Mat are still in high school and Lili is now a freshman in college. They're helping put the 'teen' back in Teenbeat.

Love or Perish was recorded in Athens, Georgia with the help of Mat's brother, Ryan Lewis (Kindercore Records/The Four Corners). Ryan set the trio up with producer Bill Doss from Olivia Tremor Control to record "Love or Perish," their debut album.

Pocket Rockets list their influences as David Bowie and other early '70's glam bands but somehow come out sounding more like Sleater-Kinney meets The Rondelles. Johnny Marr-ish guitars and teen-girl angst vocals with Bill Doss' almost-psychedelic production make Love or Perish an exciting ride. Guitarist Lili is also an artist, her illustrations grace the cover of the new CD. She has also illustrated the cover for The Book of Lists for Teens by Sandra and Harry Choron (Houghton Mifflin) and is currently working on stuff for a gallery in Japan.
