Ramones “Ramones” 1976. Today, October 8th, wo…

Ramones “Ramones” 1976. Today, October 8th, would have been Johnny Ramone’s 70th birthday (b. John William Cummings, 1948, d. 2004). Today is also C.J. Ramone’s birthday (b. Christopher Ward, 1965) who replaced Dee Dee on bass in 1989. Ramones was the band’s debut album and is considered one of the great punk rock – all rock – classics, introducing the super up-tempo punk rhythm, short and snappy songs based on 50′s/60′s pop melodies delivered with a snotty adolescent attitude, basic simplistic chord structures…even the album cover – all have been imitated by countless punks, metalheads, alt-rockers, post-punks and pop rockers for 40+ years since its release. It barely made a commercial dent at the time of its release, not even cracking the top 100 on the album charts in the US (this was during the height of bloated, self-absorbed arena and prog rock which the Ramones heartily rebelled against) but posthumously can be credited for just about all of the “alternative” music that followed it. 

Ramones did release a couple of singles from the LP in ‘76, “Blitzkrieg Bop” (which gave us the endearing and enduring “Hey Ho! Let’s Go!” anthem) and “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend.” I’m fairly certain neither single charted at the time. Besides those two songs, the whole album really is a stream of classic tracks back-to-back. I’m particularly fond of “Beat on the Brat,” “Judy Is a Punk” and first songs of many more over the years that gave insight into what the Ramones wanted to do: “Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue” and what they didn’t want to do: “I Don’t Wanna Go Down to the Basement” and “I Don’t Wanna Walk Around With You.” 

Approximately a million people have written/said about a million things about Ramones and it’s been included on almost as many best-of lists, but of note is The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame around the time of the Ramones’ induction in 2002: “The Ramones got back to basics: simple, speedy, stripped-down rock and roll songs. Voice, guitar, bass, drums. No makeup, no egos, no light shows, no nonsense. And though the subject matter was sometimes dark, emanating from a sullen adolescent basement of the mind, the group also brought cartoonish fun and high-energy excitement back to rock and roll.” Allmusic states in its 5 star review, “Ramones is all about speed, hooks, stupidity, and simplicity. The songs are imaginative reductions of early rock & roll, girl group pop, and surf rock. Not only is the music boiled down to its essentials, but the Ramones offer a twisted, comical take on pop culture with their lyrics…”

Richard Hell and the Voidoids “Destiny Street”…

Richard Hell and the Voidoids “Destiny Street” 1982. Red Star Records. Today, October 2nd, is Richard Hell’s 69th birthday (b. Richard Lester Meyers 1949). If you punks ever spiked your hair or used safety pins as a fashion accessory, thank Richard Hell, widely considered to be one of the fathers of punk music and the punk look (he was Malcolm MacLaren’s inspiration for the Sex Pistols’ look). Destiny Street was the second, and last, album Hell recorded as Richard Hell and the Voidoids. The first, Blank Generation released in ‘77 after Hell quit the Heartbreakers, is probably better known and includes some absolute classics including the title track “Blank Generation” and “Love Comes in Spurts.”  But Destiny Street has some gems, including “The Kid With the Replaceable Head” which spawned the Voidoids first and only music video. It also has a few cover songs including The Kinks’ “You Gotta Move,” Bob Dylan’s “Going Going Gone” and the garage classic “I Can Only Give You Everything” which was originally performed by Them and then again by MC5 (I just saw Wayne Kramer perform it last week on the MC50 tour and it was fantastic).

From Allmusic: “No one ever accused Richard Hell of being the hardest working man in rock & roll, and not only did it take him five years to get around to making a follow-up to his first album, the remarkable Blank Generation, but he didn’t even bother to come up with a full LP’s worth of new material for 1982’s Destiny Street; the opening song, “The Kid With the Replaceable Head,” first appeared as a B-side to a single in 1979, and three of the album’s ten tunes are covers, which hardly speaks well of his productivity. But if it’s hard to imagine why it took five years to come up with Destiny Street, there’s little arguing that Hell’s second album is nearly as strong as his first. While the covers might seem like padding, the interpretations of the Kinks’ “You Gotta Move” and Them’s “I Can Only Give You Everything” are wildly passionate and overflowing with ideas and energy, and Hell’s dour, jagged take on Dylan’s “Going, Going, Gone” nearly surpasses the original. Robert Quine’s guitar work on Blank Generation staked his claim as one of the most interesting and intelligent guitarists to emerge from the New York underground scene, and if anything, he was in even stronger form on Destiny Street, while new members Naux (on guitar) and Fred Maher (on drums) give him all the support he needs. And though Blank Generation made it clear Hell was among the brainiest members of punk’s first graduating class, the handful of new originals here show he’d actually grown since his debut; on “Downtown at Dawn” and “Ignore That Door,” Hell subtly but implicitly rejects the dead end of night-life decadence, “Time” is a meditation on mortality that’s unexpectedly compassionate, and the title cut proved Hell had not only begun to recognize his own faults, but had even learned to laugh at them. Destiny Street sounds looser and more spontaneous than Hell’s debut, but it’s just as smart and every bit as powerful, and it’s a more than worthy follow-up.”

Germs “Rock N’Rule (Live at the Masque Reunion…

Germs “Rock N’Rule (Live at the Masque Reunion Christmas Party 1979″ 1979/1986. XES Records. Today, September 26th, would have been Darby Crash’s 60th birthday (b. Jan Paul Beahm, 1958, d. 1980). This album is a live recording of a concert at the Whisky A-Go-Go soon after the release of their classic album G.I. and, after leading off with Crash wailing “Waitress, we’re the Germs. We want beer,” launches into several tracks from that album including “Let’s Pretend,” “Communist Eyes,” “Media Blitz,” “Manimal” and two of my all-time favorite Germs songs “Richie Dagger’s Crime” and “Lexicon Devil.” 

The liner notes on the back cover of Rock N’Rule consist of a fairly extensive essay by Geza X who is notable for producing the Germs’ “Lexicon Devil” single as well as other punk classics like Dead Kennedy’s “Holiday in Cambodia” and Black Flag’s “Six Pack;” he also played in The Bags and The Deadbeats. From Geza X’s notes: “Darby knew he was going to die young. He used to look straight at me with those hypno-coil eyes of his and say ‘I’m gonna kill myself in five years.’ When I said I wished he wouldn’t talk like that, he would answer ‘Bowie says we only got five more years.’ Those were the early days and he was really into Bowie. Five years later, perhaps to the day, he was dead. A suicide at twenty-two. He was found under a sign that said ‘Here lies Darby Crash…’ with an arrow pointing at his head….The thing in your hands is a very memorable 1979 Christmas Party at the Whisky-A-Go-Go. It’s only luck that I recorded it, on a four-track, because it was a rare Masque reunion. It was a really psychotic show, packed to the gills, and the Germs literally tore the house down, as usual. Don [Bolles, Germs’ drummer] was two hours late because he had been arrested, the audience was about to riot from being cooped up and waiting, and the owner of the Whisky was hiding in his office, shaking. The Germs had to stop a few songs because there was so much commotion on stage – you can hear bottles breaking. Darby and I got into an argument towards the end of their set; I was supposed to go on next, everything was running late, and he didn’t want to give up the stage. As a result, I would up singing the first couple bars of their encore “Shutdown.” The club shut the lights off, thinking it would shut everyone up, but noooo…a fan set the stage on fire, one of the bouncers tried to grab him, Pat Smear smashed him a good one with his guitar, the bouncers tried to jump Pat backstage, Pat escaped, came back and whacked him with a broken beer bottle – I suppose it was a riot!”
