Here at CPRA we are all huge fans of the Ramones and Ramonescore in general. So any time we get a review request in for something in relation I tend to get a bit excited. The first track, ‘Never Saw The Ramones’ really struck me. Yes that’s right me, Skabones, never got to see the Ramones. I get to sit and listen in a jealous manner to all those around me whom were lucky to see the Ramones.
“At CBGB’s playing loud, they started out performing to the lonely crowd, when I was there they were no more”
This is a great tribute song to the Ramones and their everlasting influence on punk rock. It’s also a tribute to punk in its heyday. Not many people were able to catch the Ramones live at CBGB’s and sadly we will never see another show there again. If there’s one thing I really dig about the The Young Rochelles, although the Ramones are a major influence. They have their own unique and amazing sound.
Some personal favorites for me on this record are, ‘Coastin’ Strong’, ‘Don’t Let It Last’, ‘Monster In My Hallway’, ‘Return Of The Skunk Ape’, ‘She’s Always Glowin’, and of course, ‘Never Saw The Ramones’. This album is full of strong bass, kickass drums, guitar riffs that wickedly shred, and anthem like melodic tunes!
