I WAS REALLY WAITING MCRACKIN'S VERSION OF THE TOO TOUGH TO DIE.
CHECK OUT MY REVIEW OF IT.
Here is greetings from Bil Mcrackin.
Hi, this is Bil McRackin from the McRackins in Canada. We have
just finished recording "too tough to die" to be released on clearview
records later this year. We had a great time recording the album, it
brought back a lot of memories for me. I still remember the day i got that
album. I was in the 8th grade and a girlfriend of mine gave it to me for
my birthday.It is definetly one of their more overlooked records but there
is still some great songs on it.
GENERAL INFO OF THESE CLEARVIEWS RAMONES COVERS
On these albums bands are playing songs on same orden than Ramones
released their own. These bands are from United States:
These are limited editions: 1700 and released only by vinyl, expect
Queers: Rocket to Russia and Screeching Weasel: Ramones has been
re-released by CD-versions also.
Here is taken limited 300 "tour edition" too, with different color vinyls
and silkprinted cover from these albums : Vindictives, Queers and Boris
I've self got BORIS THE SPRINKLER: End Of The Century and PARASITES: It's
Alive (normal and color vinyl) and these were
pretty good. Technically these are good and bands has invented
some great things and tricks also.
The Parasites has played the It's Alive LP in front of a crowd at Gilman
Street. Parasites plays Ramones songs also at live and the first 5
songs were from ITS ALIVE on June 1998.
Operation Ivy (Contains present Rancid members) has released Ramones EP

5.Chasing The Night
6.Sheena Is A Punk Rocker.

looked just like the Ramones cover of "Rocket To Russia," but instead of
Ramones it said Operation Ivy on it.

THE TIP TOPPERS released cover album of
the Ramones album Subterranean Jungle
in June 2004. So it was released 20 years after the original came
out, and 30 years after the Ramones started.
The Tip Toppers sound
like a mix of Ramones, Social Distortion and Roky Erickson and this album is
dynamite! With members from Yum Yums and Gluecifer etc. Drummer is
Ulf Bendiksen who is wellknown among us Ramones hardcore fans. While I was
listening this first time, I was surprised how great they're added new
elements for these songs, but they really do justice to our heroes. Only
500 copies are made, be sure to get one while you can!
THE MORONS is a band from Indonesia. I've
known with the
singer-guitarist Eko Ramone since 2003 or 2004. The Morons covered the
Ramones album Road To Ruin in 2004, they named it to Road To Ramones. I
wanted to add these basic infos of it also to my site. Doing the
official release in Indonesia isn't so simple because of the
financial situation of the most people there... etc., so they did
Do-It-Yourself CD-r version.
- The quality may not be as good as it should, we had to do things
with really small budget. We wanted to cover the Ramones album
similar way like the Screeching Weasel and the Queers did. We're fans of
those bands too. We're Ramones freaks!, told Eko.
Eko's E-mail is email@example.com
Also in this release are playing
bassist-vocalist Idoeb Dizzy, drummer
Sadek P.I.N. and as a additional lead guitarst Asrul.
WARDOGS is a band from Treviso, Italy.
their Ramones' tribute/ cover album titled Raw & Dirty
Days in a big party in Treviso in September 2012.
Album has by Wardogs 20 covers of Ramones songs or songs that also
and a song that Joey covered What A Wonderful World.
- Raw & Dirty Days is our personal tribute to the Ramones and we don't
want to try to emulate them (it's impossible!!!). We tried to maintain
album raw, explains cool guitarist Sandro Mariuz.
Bonus track is Blitzkrieg Bop and it is a live version from a show that
Marky Ramone played with Mariuz etc. under name Marky Ramone & Andead
at Palaverde, Treviso, Italy on December 31, 2011. After song ends, it
turns to 2012.
Wardogs plays songs with a good spirit, strong sound, kind of studio
live energy and
classics Rockaway Beach, Blitzkrieg Bop, Sheena Is A Punk Rocker, Havana
Affair and Commando it comes Main Man from album Mondo Bizarro (1992).
A good choice. Vocalist Oscar really has Joey influenced voice
and especially in What A Wonderful World Joey's spirit is there.
Thanks from me (Jari-Pekka) to you gentlemen of giving nice thanks in a
thanks list on CD sleeve.

well) and Facebook
