PAN FOR PUNKS: A STEELPAN TRIBUTE TO
THE RAMONES CD (USA)
Pan For Punks... A Steelpan Tribute To The Ramones is now
in the USA and later in this year (2005) in the Europe etc. Also
includes a DVD video of Blitzkrieg Bop.
How sounds idea of this tribute CD - Pan For Punks... A Steelpan Tribute
To The Ramones! I bet, you'll be surprised positively. Tracy Thornton is
from North Carolina, USA and he has produced and performed 14 Ramones
songs which makes you pogodancing, or like he said: "Just imagine if
CBGB's were located on one of the Caribbean islands - it would sound
exactly like Pan For Punks... A Steelpan Tribute To The Ramones!" Warped
speed filled with chants minimal (and great) way and steel drums
played in a new atmosphere etc. really works out also because Tracy
Thornton captured the fun and melodic essence a way
which gets you so happily surprised.
Release also includes a DVD
video of Blitzkrieg Bop. Video is also in "speed" format and it has
Ramones street influence on it. Tracy and I has
got great feedback of Pan For Punks... A Steelpan Tribute To The Ramones
for example from (Ramones related people) Ida Langsam, Donna Gaines and
Monte Melnick. Among
of 14 songs are for example I Wanna Be Sedated, Rockaway Beach and
Outsider. Tracy does of Pinhead slower version with a bit spiritual
attitude, but after it comes smily version of Do You Wanna Dance? and a
bit heavier We're A Happy Family.
