My future's bleak
Ain't it neat?

Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee: we miss you, bros. Simply one of the greatest rock and roll bands ever.

Thanks for the post; it's been decades since I've rocked the It's Alive double LP and this looks like it will scratch that itch.

My favorite song from the bruddas has always been "Loudmouth" from the first LP. Pure American poetry.

You're a loudmouth baby
You better shut up
I'm gonna beat you up
'Cause you're a loudmouth babe

I dreamed about the Ramones last night. Very much on the strange side of things to wake up to this post.

My dream also contained MDMA. Think you could slide some this way?

would you settle for a can of Schlitz?

Eh, I've got half a case of Tacate left from last night. This being the Ramones, you could've at least offered me a bottle of Boone's.</small

Great post.
I saw the Ramones once. At the godawful Vogue in Indy. But, sweet-jeebus, what a show! It was like someone fired-up a buzzsaw and didn't stop til the hour was up. Hard, loud and fuckingfast.

Oh, cool. Thanks, monju!

their album produced by the now-infamous Phil Spector

Phil Spector has been infamous for a long, long time. It's just only recently that he's become CourtTV-infamous.

Nice find.

Great quality... nice energy in these recordings. I saw the Ramones a couple of times at my sister's college in the Bronx when I was a kid in the 80s. I don't remember Joey doing any in-between song banter at either of those shows. This is a real treat.

Gabba-gabba Oy!

Before it was "gabba gabba", it was "google goggle"

Don't worry. The cheese-its absorbed most of it.

Ha! I bought this years ago on tape at the old Bleeker Bob's record store in NYC. Still sounds great today.

There's nothing Canadian about that link.

Gobble Gobble Hey! was a CD by a Toronto band called Slutarted. Cover is NSFW.

I saw the Ramones back in '94 at a festival in St. Louis. And it was cool because it was The Ramones and they sounded like the Ramones and everything.... but I just can't get excited about their bootlegs.

They don't do anything differently live then they do on their albums. I mean, it's not like they're going to bust out and start improvising or something.

They're no King Crimson, but they're okay, I guess.

That was kind of the whole point of the Ramones, dude. :)
posted by jonmc at 2:32 PM on October 7, 2007


Right, but the whole point of collecting bootlegs is to hear the band doing something that they didn't do on the album.

Otherwise, you might as well just listen to the album, since the sound quality is better.

Yo Gabba Gabba.

Awesome find.

I remember a Ramones article in Spin sometime in the 1980s where Joey recalls recording End of the Centurywith Phil Spector.

According to Joey, Phil would get trashed on Manishevitz wine during the recording sessions and stomp around saying guttural nonsense like "Piss! Shit! Fuck! Fuck this shit!"

If the Ramones attempted to leave at this point, Phil would just brandish his revolver to quell the dissent.

I do so enjoy listening to the Ramones, thank you Monju.

Gabba Gabba Hey, eh? Well, now I know where they got the title inspiration for this.

How weird is it that the DRUMMERS are the only Ramones still living?

I saw them in Dallas, with Marky on drums.
posted by yhbc at 9:03 PM on October 7, 2007


porn in the woods, the story goes that Spector pulled a gun on Dee Dee during the sessions.

I am very very happy. Thank you, Monju.
