Like Ice In Water - The Rocket Boys

This band from Austin Texas are (I'm assuming here) named after the book of the same name that was made in to a film, October Sky, which is an anagram of Rocket Boys. They used to be called Homer Hickman and the Rocket Boys, Homer being the author of the book so I guess that backs up my theory why they are called that. The book is about young boys building rockets and according to The Rocket Boys like to write music about where they are from, it's the only link I can get between the two. They play atmospheric rock and they have been giving this track away.
