ALL GOOD CRETINS GO TO HEAVEN –

A TRIBUTE TO THE RAMONES

This is not the first tribute album and for sure it won't be the last. But it is always fun to listen to the interpretations of classic or obscure tracks that so many cool bands come up with. The songs on this album are just one more proof that the RAMONES were without a doubt among the best songwriters and most influential bands in rock history ever. Some of the versions you find here are rather close to the original, others are quite far away. Enjoy the record and watch out for Vol.2!

Nearly every band or song has a little story to it:

•  “ Garden of Serenity ” by Swiss Treekillaz” features a guest performance by Clawfinger's Zak Tell

•  Jari-Pekka Laitio-Ramone contributes a beach-boyish version of “Slug” (a very rare RAMONES track) which was recorded with Snails of Finland , a “supergroup” put together from established Finnish musicians. He also runs the world's hugest fan website.

•  there are two bands that were named after classic RAMONES tracks ( The Commandos and The Havana Affairs )

•  Ramone$ Mania , a German cover band, will play the Wacken festival with Marky Ramone on drums in 2005

•  U.K. hardcore legend Tribute To Nothing who actually do perform a tribute!

•  German punk icons Terrorgruppe contribute their song about DeeDee

•  newcomers Wax.On Wax.Off played the CBGB's on a Joey Ramone memorial event and contribute their song about Joey

•  Alain Nkossi Konda is originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo and grew up in N.Y. – he also played the legendary CBGB's there.

•  Waver from Sweden deliver an outstanding version of “Danny Says” with female vocals – definitely a highlight!

•  Italian band Senzabenza had one of their albums produced by Joey Ramone

This CD's artwork is a very nice digipack with great cartoon illustration (by A.J.B. Hangover) and a 12 page colour booklets which gives every single band space for a personal liner-note.
