Richie Ramone is famed for his time spent drumming for the iconic New York City rock band the Ramones. He spent almost five frenzied years, between 1983 and 1987, charging his way around the world; playing over 500 shows, whilst recording three albums. Praised by Joey Ramone for putting ‘the spirit back into the band’, Richie was the only Ramones drummer to be credited as the sole composer and writer of six Ramones songs.

 

In 2013, Richie Ramone catapulted back onto the rock’n’roll music scene with the release of solo debut album: ‘Entitled’. He now continues to uproot modern music culture with Cellophane’ – a stripped down, raw rock album; fully loaded with gravelly vocals, catchy guitar riffs and 80’s punk-rock vigour.

 

Aggressively catchy, ‘Cellophane’s’ powerful lead single ‘I Fix This’ perfectly reflects the ‘take no bollocks’ pure-punk attitude of the album. Yet showcasing Richie’s musical versatility – the heartfelt ‘I’m Not Ready’ delivers a more personal, toned-down melody. Other noteworthy tracks include Depeche Mode cover ‘Enjoy the Silence’ and ‘Pretty Poison’, which was penned by Richie during the 1980’s.

“Attack of the Animal Boy! World Tour” is an un-missable event for fans of the Ramones, Nirvana, Sex Pistols and Green Day. Throughout the shows Richie Ramone will be accompanied by his steadfast band of Rock’n’Roll veterans: lead guitarist Ronnie Simmons; bassist and vocalist Clare Misstake, and drummer/rhythm guitar player Ben Reagan.

‘Cellophane’ was released by DC Jam Records on 5th August 2016.

Emperor The Stag to release new album ‘Fantasy to Bleak’ – Feb 3rd

EmperorTStagFantasyToBleakWith little concern for budget (or lack of) or the fact that some of the songs on this highly anticipated debut effort are just polished up ‘first demos,’ Emperor the Stag, confidently kick off 2014 with ‘Fantasy to Bleak’.  A four piece guitar band from Eastbourne, East Sussex (of all places) who could happily stand on the side of any high speed scene, much like The Cure did. Who some say are their vocal West Sussex counterparts.

 

If anything Fantasy to Bleak demonstrates Emperor’s solution to the long lost melody. The one that isn’t cut/pasted and complicated. This isn’t computer music and Emperor have gained a good deal of praise for that.( Introduced by the BBC radio and praised by Brighton Source for their 2013 appearance.)

 

Opener Swan feels like a wet flannel during a boxing match, full of conflict but enough self-belief to carry through to the next 3 songs. The first being Leaves (the single) a catchy little ditty that runs with optimism only to crash into a glimmer of belief surrounding grey scepticism of Glue and Animals. At the end of this back and forth, non-stop conflict (there is deliberately little time or space between any of the tracks) the ref counts to 10 and the band transforms into something more submissive with ‘Blushing Bride,’ a song written and recorded in 3 hours. Speirs and Webb’s finest moment.

 

The love child of Death Cab for Cutie and Doves say bloggers but this is a match only suitable for the less specific online dating sites. When in full limbo, Emperor write and sing songs that could be festival sing-alongs on either side of the pond. And at the moment that is all they care about.

 

Fantasy to Bleak is available now in all reputable digital download stores.
