Rocket From The Crypt
Marc Weingarten, Rolling Stone, 22 February 1996
ALTHOUGH SAN DIEGO's Ocean Beach is just a five-minute car ride from Sea World, it's highly unlikely that any of the amusement park's Shamu-ogling tourists would be caught dead here. A scrappy seaside community dotted with ma-and-pa surf shops and storefronts that promise CASH FOR SCRAP and BAIL BONDS, it's the town that time and gentrification have passed by. And that's fine by Speedo, aka John Reis, frontman for the San Diego punk sextet Rocket From the Crypt.
