HAMBURG RAMÖNES: FREE PHIL SPECTOR (2005)
German band Hamburg Ramönes do focus on their opinion of Phil
Spector: Free Phil Spector! Free Phil Spector is also name of their CD.
They also focus to keep real spirit alive, and you know what that
means. It's released through Riff Randell Records.
Hamburg Ramönes has recorded 9 songs, 2 of them are Ramones covers
Is A Punk and Pet Sematary) and 7 of them are mostly Ramones tribute kind
of songs with terrific lyrics. Especially if you've been a long time
Ramones fan you'll praise the lyrics after finding many stories relating
to them. They're singing and playing for you for example message from
Joey, song about Dee Dee Ramone and another ones of Johnny Ramone, Marky
Ramone and PJ Soles. Official release date of CD was on September 23,
release is including 12 page booklet and I noticed easily that booklet is
designed by professional person. It contains lyrics, lot photos and
Ramoniac details. There's also in their net-store nice looking
I got an honour to write foretext to the CD.
Hamburg Ramönes is not just Ramones tribute music. You can easily
their wide influences since the days of the 60's. The attitude and spirit
lives on with this music. Their guitarist Ecki saw The Ramones for the
first time in 1978. He and every band member of Hamburg Ramönes were
influenced for the rest of their lives in big ways. I had the honor of
meeting Ecki and Thomas for the first time in 2004 in NYC, we were there
because of Joey (Joey's Birthday Memory Party).

Catchy tunes are good mix of own ideas and Ramones influences and
referrals to the Ramones and their songs.

Scorchers) singing the title track with us. Having followed Jason And
The Scorchers since 1985, when they played at Hamburg Markthalle, and
having bought all their albums inbetween this makes me a very proud

German language and it features longtime Ramones' fan Gerhard
