The history of the Primitive Radio Gods begins with The I-Rails. Formed in the late 1980s, The I-Rails were an alternative independent rock band based in Oxnard, California. Consisting of three members; bassist/singer Chris O'Connor, guitarist Jeff Sparks (a childhood friend of O'Connor), and drummer Tim Lauterio; The I-Rails released a total of four albums, none of which received much public attention. After the fourth album, Panharmonium, was released in 1990 and similarly ignored, the band decided to separate. While Sparks and Lauterio went on to pursue other potential careers, O'Connor continued to work with material originally intended for a fifth I-Rails album. Inspired by bands such as Public Enemy, O'Connor recorded additional material and ultimately mixed a total of ten tracks on a broken-down 1969 Ampex 16-track tape deck on a budget of $1,000. After mastering, O'Connor released the demo to public music stations under the (misspelled) moniker "Primative Radio Gods", a song on the I-Rails album Nine Songs from Nowhere. Like his former band's works, O'Connor's Rocket, as the album came to be called, was widely disregarded by both radio and the general public. Defeated, O'Connor retired from the music business and utilized his Navy training to pursue a job as an air traffic controller at Los Angeles International Airport. The remaining copies of Rocket were put into storage, where they would remain for several years.
While housecleaning in 1994, O'Connor rediscovered the box of demo tapes he had packed away years prior. In a final act of desperation, he mailed copies of the tape to any major record label he could think of. Weeks later, he received a call from an executive named Jonathan Daniel from the New York offices of Fiction Records. One unique song in particular had caught Daniel's attention: "Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth with Money in My Hand", a piano-driven ballad over a hip-hop backbeat, which heavily sampled B. B. King's "How Blue Can You Get?". Daniel immediately signed O'Connor to a publishing deal, and took him to Columbia Records for a recording deal. "Phone Booth" first appeared on the soundtrack to the Jim Carrey dark comedy film The Cable Guy in May 1996, and a slightly remastered Rocket was released the following month. "Phone Booth" was released to radio as the Primitive Radio Gods' first single, and was remarkably successful in both the UK and U.S. markets. Due to the single's success, Rocket was certified gold.


Rocket is the Primitive Radio Gods' debut album, released on June 18, 1996 by Columbia Records. Their best known single from this album, Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth with Money in My Hand, helped launch the band's career. King sample, Standing had all the appeal.

White Hot Peach. Sadly, Primitive Radio Gods' debut mini-album, Rocket, proves those doubters right. Apart from Standing, there is precious little on the album to hold the interest of anyone drawn in by the lead single. Most of Rocket sounds exactly like somebody messing around with a four-track, more intent on capturing sounds, not songs. Usually, this would at least result in some interesting sounds, but O'Connor hasn't even managed that. At its core, Rocket sounds like a demo tape with one promising song.

The album is a great example of the pseudo-hard rock that was beginning to lose popularity unfortunately in the late 90's, and I highly recommend it to anyone who doesn't have narrow taste in music.
