"We don't sing words, we sing sounds"--one of the Ramones of the Tom Snyder show (from memory, not necessarily verbatim).

Rockist_Scientist (RSLaRue), Thursday, 27 April 2006 12:22 (fifteen years ago) link

still have never listened to the Misfits. saw the Ramones about 7 times, more if you count yelling "hi Johnny" on 8th Street and getting a grunt in response.

Ramones wear out their welcome after a few lps, but ... man, Johnny Ramone was one hell of a guitar player. So for Johnny alone, I have to pick the Ramones.

Flipper better than both, of course.

Haha I was joshing with Chaki which has nothing to do with the entire board being dumb because they have not heard certain RAMONES ALBUMS (which I don't know either so I must be equally dumb).

But don't lock thread because then people can't talk about the RAOMENES!!!!

AMG review of Subterannean Jungle is interesting:

Tentatively returning toward punk, or at least new wave, the Ramones turned in their most enjoyable record since Rocket to Russia with Subterranean Jungle. Producers Ritchie Cordell and Glen Kolotkin were the heads of the edgy power pop and punk label Bomp!, so they steered the Ramones back toward the '60s pop infatuation that provided the foundation for their early records. It's a strategy that pays off well -- for the most part, the group's originals are so punchy and catchy that they make the pair of covers superfluous. Comprised of a set of unabashedly hook-laden songs and driven by more subtle rhythms, Subterranean Jungle may not be a punk record in the strictest sense of the word, yet the Ramones haven't sounded quite as alive in a long, long while.

Ritchie Cordell, Tommy James and the Shondells producer, was involved with Bomp Records? This may be an internet meme.

Note how any reference to Cordell/Kolotkin and Bomp Records together only occur in context of the Subterranean Jungle album! If, in fact, the assertion is untrue, one would assume that the AMG review is responsible for this! Will someone alert Ned?!?

Tim Ellison (Tim Ellison), Thursday, 27 April 2006 20:01 (fifteen years ago) link

"only occur in context of discussions regarding the Subterranean Jungle album" I mean to say!

Neil: It's good to put some distance. We're trying to deal with people perhaps a bit more picky...

What are you talking about?

Jennifer: Punk rock.

Neil: Anyone that hates punk rock. We came back from San Francisco before I went into rehab, I was working in this restaurant. I had that Ramones tape, Pleasant Dreams, and I played it for the bartenders who listened to Jimmy Buffet every day. It's a bizarre fuckin world and like they have never heard of them! It just blew my mind! I thought everybody's heard of the fuckin Ramones! They're like the Monkees or something! They were laughing at me: YOU'RE A FREAK!

WALK AMONG US
EARTH AD.
STATIC AGE

LEGACY OF BRUTALITY IS A COMP BUT ALOT OF THAT SHIT WAS PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED AND STATIC AGE WASNT REALEASED TILL LOTS LATER BUT IT IS A PROPER ALBUM.

it was meant as an LP, but it was shelved due to record company crap IIRC. most of the tracks eventually showed up on Legacy of Brotality and other singles and comps.

ddb (ddb), Thursday, 27 April 2006 21:31 (fifteen years ago) link

Does anyone like Pleasant Dreams/Subterranean Jungle era Ramones

pleasant dreams is grrrr-RATE! "c'mon now," "we want the airwaves," "the kkk took my baby away," "7-11," "she's a sensation," "you didn't mean anything to me," yeah it's good. prolly my favorite post-leave home album.

subterranean jungle much spottier with some dubious covers but "psychotherapy," "outsider," "my-my kind of girl" are good. and "highest trails above" = dee-dee at his most poetic (i.e. embarrassing but endearing).

better than misfits? DUH!

First time I saw the Ramones was at the first 91X "X-Fest" in San Diego when I was 16. It was Tom Petty, Stray Cats, Ramones, Bow Wow Wow, Modern English, and the Flirts!

I reviewed subterranean jungle for some likely now-defunct NYU paper, my ONLY published stab at muzik crixizism.

I avoided Misfits partly on "bodybuilders' music sux" premise.
