ALL GOOD CRETINS GO TO HEAVEN - A TRIBUTE TO THE RAMONES

RAMONES Tribute STATEMENTS

TEAM ROCKIT (USA)
Chicago, IL (USA): power pop, rock, punk at it's finest. This is the trio “that could”, with three albums including their latest, enhanced CD "Duck Duck Goose" available at www.teamrockit.com. It was only a logical fit for TEAM ROCKIT to be asked to do a Ramones cover, they're also the essence of stripped down drums & guitar rock!www.teamrockit.com

THE COMMANDOS
We start every show with this great song, it was actually the very first song we ever played together. The Ramones were probably the ones who influenced most young punks and encouraged a lot of them to play an instrument - truly a legendary band

GUTBUCKET
A day in Kiel Rock City. "Alright everyone we need to cover a Ramones song. Which one? I don´t know man, they all rule. Let me think, Ramones, Ramones, Ramones. Blitzkrieg Bop? Naah.

YA*HOO
The Ramones – one of the best bands ever! No question, we had to be on this compilation. It´s been fun to record the song, which has been part of our live-set for years, in a slightly different way. Country meets Punk´N´Roll. That´s it. For more information check out: www.ya-hoo-music.de

 

 

STARSEVEN (ITA)

KEVINS CAMPFIRE
Massive-Alternative-Noise is our Voice! Kevins Campfire plays a mixture of Alternative Rock, Punk and Metal. The past two years, we did a lot of shows in Germany. The Ramones created definitely their own style of Rock 'n Roll! Hey ho let´s go! So did the Ramones, and so do we when we're on stage. We're happy to be a part of this fabulous compilation.

RAMONE$ MANIA
The Ramones were a band like no other. They wrote a lot of fantastic hard, fast and loud songs in a characteristic three-chord style and left their mark on rock ´n´roll. That was exactly what also RAMONE$ MANIA had planned to do. Since we´ve been too late, there is nothing else for us but to pay tribute to the Ramones and keep their spirit and music alive.

Treekillaz feat. ZAK TELL (CH)
After Clawfinger and Treekillaz went back to the tourbus after a gig in Munich, a Ramones song was played on the stereo which caused a funny scene. All members of both bands started a big moshpit which almost caused the bus to fall over - since then we all knew that we have to record a song together. The Ramones are a cult band and that's good then what would 90% of all rock bands do without the influence of their unique mix between rock'n'roll, pop and punk - we don't know ! www.treekillaz.com

TRIBUTE TO NOTHING (UK)
When we were invited to this project and asked if we wanted to record a Ramones tribute song we instantly said YES. We had the privilige to play with Dee Dee back in '94 in London. I was 14 at the time and will remember that show until the day I die but until then 'I WANNA LIVE'!!!!!

HENS HENSEN
The first time I saw the RAMONES and heard „I Want You Around“ was on German TV, on a Sunday morning when they broadcasted “Rock’n’Roll Highschool”. I was 8 years old then. The all-time best songwriters ever are The Beatles, The Ramones and… Hens Hensen. It is a pleasure to contribute a song for this tribute album!

 

 


 

ALAIN NKOSSI KONDA (DR of CONGO)
In the 29 years I lived in New York City before my recent relocation to Bavaria (Southern/Germany), I had the pleasure of performing during my last year as a “teenager” on numerous occasions at the Legendary CBGB’s (OMFOG) which is located on Bleecker & 3St. All can say is that even upon my last visit to this Mecca in the Spring of 2003, I could still feel the vibe left behind by the RAMONES and other great bands of the 20th century music scene. The song is produced and performed by myself (African rhythm guitar, programming & all instruments), with the assistance of Jim Savitt (on rhythm & lead guitar which were recorded in NYC).

THE POPZILLAS
Today your love, tomorrow the world - becoming a legend is about authenticity and expecting more than life can offer. That's what made THE RAMONES sort of special - in their very own way... www.popzillas.com


 

WAVER (SWE)
Waver got a hold of it through the recordcompany Dead frog records. The C.E.O. of Dead frog is a serious Ramones fan. He phoned the group up and just said, you should do Danny says. And he had a good reason, or at least he thought. First it is his second favourite Ramones song (after To be sedated), and Waver could do a really cool version of Danny says. And it came out great, so great that it will be released on Wavers second album in autumn 2005.

JEREMIHA (SWE)
We will only do Poison heart. That is the Ramones song that means most to the band. That was the answer from Jeremiha Dead frog records CEO got when he phoned up the band to ask. And to go along with the Jeremiha sound that was ideal. Said and done, it was recorded in the famous Random recording in Uppsala, Sweden during a weekend with Jimmy Bergwall and Daniel Hendriksson. It will appear on the debut album from Jeremiha during spring 2005.

ELECTRIC HIPPIE FEAT. REBELLA JANE DOE
"Blitzkrieg Bop" doesn't work out right as an electronical version? The Ramones always work out right! So we did not worry. We just had fun.

ORIGINAL LEBERKAS DUO
Das Original Leberkas Duo ist die bayrische Reinkarnation der Ramones: ausgestattet mit der gleichen schier unglaublichen musikalischen Versiertheit der amerikanischen Punk-Überväter, mit einem ähnlich facettenreichen Gesang, tiefgründigen Lyrics und fast schon uhrwerkartiger Präzision des Zusammenspiels von Schlagzeug und Saiteninstrumenten. Das Original Leberkas Duo geht daher mit dem Gedanken schwanger, sich umzubenennen in "The Original New Bavarian Ramones Duo", oder so.

KÖRPERWERK
Körperwerk meets the Ramones : an uncommon combination but all spiritual ways come together somehow. This is the only Coversong Körperwerk ever did. So listen close and feel it. Produced & mastered by LoboPanic@Klangewalt.com, Further information: info@klangewalt.com

 

 

 

WAX.ON WAX.OFF
The phone had been ringing for over 20 Minutes when Steffen picked up the receiver: „Hi, this is Joey Ramone. I don´t have too much time so we have to make this quick. Here are three chords: A major, D major, and E major. You got that? Yeah? Ok! Just repeat those for the beginning and the first verse. For the bridge you change to a D major and then an E major and repeat that. Alright! The chorus is the beginning again but there´s also a middle part that´s a bit different so you might want to write it down. At the end of the 2nd chorus you play an F-sharp minor – what do you mean you don´t know how to play an F-sharp minor? – yeah, go and look it up! - anyways, then it´s D, A, and E major again. That´s it! Yeah, that´s the whole song. Lyrics? What lyrics? You come up with something – and if not just do some aaahs and ooohs or baabaas – I do that all the time. And man, don´t forget the claps! Throw in some claps! Do you hear me? OK – cool. So now I want you to call Thorsten and Olli and then you play that song for me, OK? OK! Bye.” Steffen looked at his watch. It was 4.30 a.m., April 15th, 2001 and he had some calls to make.
