MARKY RAMONE AND THE INTRUDERS
Live at the Hamburg, Fabrik February 5.1997
Gleis February 12.1997.
SETLIST AT MUENSTER
Both events had German band had Seesaw playing before Marky. In Muenster
there was The Burning Heads as the first of three bands. Audience both
places: about 200 - 300 people. In Muenster the room was very small and
crowded and Marky And the Intruders had to walk through the audience to
to the stage. The concert began at 23.15. Very small stage, they play
right in front of you. If you want, you can touch them, they are that
close to the people at the front.
They did an extremely powerful show on stage. Especially the bass player
Johnny Pisano and the second guitar player Ratboy did a very good job.
They ran and jumped and
moved more than all Ramones together in the last 22 years. There's not a
single second the two were not moving around. Marky has recruited good
personnel. They all seem to be very young, especially Ratboy
The other one, Marky's long time friend Skinny Bones sings all
of the songs except one sung by the bass player Johnny and one by
Ratboy. And Marky? Well, he's just Marky. Exactly the same
as you all know him.
There was a lot of action in the audience, too. Sometimes the people seem
to be pushed on stage from behind, there was nothing to stop them, no
barrier or something like that between stage and audience. All the time
Skinny and the others had to watch if someone was falling against their
microphones. It was kind of cool and very different to any Ramones
Nobody seemed to know the Intruders because Skinny was walking through the
audience while the other bands were playing and nobody came to him.
Everybody seemed to think that he was one of the audience.
You can bye a whole lot of merchandising stuff of them, even bass drum
pedals, sneakers of Marky (worn on the last Ramones tour), drum skins and
sticks, T-shirts, caps, posters, the LP (vinyl) and a lot more. Everything
except caps and shirts is signed by Marky.
Hey, I found something about Marky which had changed: Everytime they left
the stage he went to Skinny mike and said something like "Thank you" and
stuff. Has he EVER said something on stage the last Ramones years? What
was not so good in Muenster was, that somebody stole Skinny Bones'
distortion pedal rightaway of the stage during while they were playing
"Grudge". That sucked!
