Leaving Home - A Norwegian Tribute To The Ramones tribute album
came out on October 25, 2005. Then also big Ramones tribute concert was
held at Rockefeller in Oslo. There around 10 bands were playing Ramones
covers. Steinar Edvardsen, who is one of the main men behind of the album
and tribute concert, said that there's coming out also later the limited
edition vinyl with some extra material. The
tribute album project started as an idea on a party in January, 2005. The
most of the songs are recorded in
Seafront Studio. All bands are from
Norway expect Hymans and Clawfinger are from Sweden and Bunch Of The
Living Dead and The Humps are from USA.

live on stage with Gabba Gabba Hey and Hey Ho, Let's Go signs and The
Humps and B.O.L.D. are in front of the CBGB's.
TAKE IT DEE DEE
It's easy to see that tribute has builded by real Ramones fan, outlook
also contains many small Ramoniacs pieces.
nice version of Something To Believe In. Version is one of fave on this.
It bring to my mind heavily attitude of older Hanoi Rocks ballads. Silver
does their version a bit slower way. After it is sweet version of S.L.U.G.
by Vibeke Saugestad. Also some other groups are doing not-so-common songs.
Btw, I also noticed that any band doesn't cover Blitzkrieg Bop, and it
really strange and cool version of Pinhead. It's mix of many styles and
crazy feelings, but everything is in balance. Red Harvest also "changed to their
selection totally new clothes", Somebody Put Something In My Drink has
doom metal influences and strong atmosphere. The Tip Toppers released
cover album of the Ramones full-length Subterranean Jungle in June 2004
and from it they picked Everytime I Eat Vegetables It Makes Me Think Of
You for this tribute.
Better known bands and artists are Clawfinger, Hymans, Casino Steel and
Backstreet Girls. Total running time of the CD is 71:45.
