Commissioned by Italian producer Mémé Ibach (Karen Cheryl), HERMAN’S ROCKET was created in 1977 by JEAN-PIERRE MASSIERA and his half brother BERNARD TORELLI. The goal was to surf on the « space disco » trend, using sci-fi themes and inter galatic grooves. But like many MASSIERA signature production these were too much out there to hit massively. Ignored when it was released, the only HERMAN’S ROCKET album soon became a sought after masterpiece of space disco.

“For Herman’s Rocket and Venus Gang, the tracks were composed with mixes of delirious voices and moogs. Musicians and singers improvised totally. Afterward I added “theme” gimmicks and different mixes keeping it fresh and unplanned.” — Jean-Pierre Massiera
