DEE DEE RAMONE: THE DEADLINE DEMOS 10'
RELEASE DATE: JUNE 26, 2020.
Records (United Kingdom) started in 1988. Owners were inspired to
reissue a few punk rock classics. This record label did publish great
Dee Dee Ramone 10' vinyl titled Dee Dee Ramone: The Deadline Demos on
June 26, 2020. Release is limited of 400 copies.
Overground Records was original label of Dee Dee's this project titled
Dee Dee Ramone's Deadline. This 10' has eight demo songs which were
recently re-discovered. Dee Dee recorded these demo songs in
1989 with Alan Lee Shaw (Maniacs/Physicals) and George Butler (Warsaw
Pakt/Lightning Raiders). Dee Dee was introduced by mutual
friend Brian James (ex Damned/ Lords Of The New Church) to Alan Lee Shaw
and George Butler. This trio band formed with the proposed name of
Dee Dee Ramone's Deadline.
Overground Records tells following in press release of The Deadline
Demos: "With rehearsals
underway, Dee Dee (lead vocals and guitar), Alan (bass and backing
vocals) and George (drums), the project was soon up and running
and in the process of negotiating a recording deal with Overground
Records, the release would be promoted with a UK tour, when due to
unforeseen circumstances (unfortunately the state of Dee Dee's fragile
mental/ physical shape), the project was sadly and frustratingly brought
to an abrupt end, before any studio recordings or gigs could be
completed. The demos from 1989 are the only recordings that occurred.
They are forming an important historical record that show flashes of
Dee Dee's genius as one of punk's most important original songwriters.
The songs never appeared on any of Dee Dee's other releases and but for
this recently re-discovered tape would have been lost forever. All
eight tracks from 1989 the session are released as a limited edition
10' of 400 copies."
Even press release tells that "songs never appeared on any of Dee Dee's
other releases.", two of the songs are in other releases but song titles

Me? in Dee Dee Ramone And
