RICHIE RAMONE
RICHIE RAMONE
Richie Ramone is the fastest, most powerful drummer who ever played with the legendary punk rock band the Ramones. He joined the Ramones in 1983 and performed in over 500 showssaround the world with the Ramones. Richie was the only Ramones drummer to sing lead vocals and to be the sole composer of Ramones songs which appear on the albums Animal Boy, Too Tough to Die and Halfway to Sanity. Richie's song, "Somebody Put Something in My Drink," became a fan favorite and was included on "Ramones Mania," the only Ramones album to go gold as well as "Loud, Fast Ramones: Their Toughest Hits," an album comprised of songs hand picked by Johnny Ramone as the Ramones' best works. Punk rock icon, Joey Ramone, remarked that "[Richie] saved the band as far as I'm concerned. He's the greatest thing to happen to the Ramones. He put the spirit back in the band." On October 8, 2013, Richie released his first solo
album, "Entitled," which features new songs written by Richie as well as new recordings of songs he wrote for the Ramones. Billboard notes, "Richie's 12 freshest cuts aim to please fans of both rock and metal with its blend of power chord-chugging simplicity and guitar hero virtuosity."
THE VENOMOUS PINKS
THE VENOMOUS PINKS
The Venomous Pinks is a trio of girls, ready to break the rules. As one of the only all girl punk bands in the Phoenix area, they make no apologies for their killer stage show and party hard, but play even harder antics. Influenced by Joan Jett and The Ramones, these three talented musicians channel a unique sound that is rock and roll meets classic punk. With Drea Doll on guitar/vocals, Suzy Trai...nwreck on bass/vocals, and Jewlz on drums, this trifecta of musicians will intoxicate you with their tantalizing talent, high energy, and no holds barred attitude. With their salacious sound, they've cultivated quite the following, causing crowds to line up at local shows. Putting on a presentation that showcases their gregarious girl power, this band leaves audiences wanting more. You can find these vixens performing at local venues almost weekly, as they are one of the most wanted girl bands in The Valley! Signed to May Cause Dizziness Records, this threesome is well on the way to becoming one of the hottest bands around.
LIGHTSPEEDGO
LIGHTSPEEDGO
LightSpeedGo is a 3 piece punk rock band from Tempe,Az. Even though the band has just started they have created a buzz in the local phoenix music scene. All members are veterans of the local Az music scene. Made of members of Off The Mark, Look Out Look, The Ultramatics, The Dead Irrelevants and No Gimmick.
THE REBEL SET
THE REBEL SET
The Rebel Set are a three piece garage rock group from Phoenix and when I say "garage" rock band, I'm not talking about the recent trend of noisy lo-fi music. These guys are a real "garage" rock band. The trio takes from early sixties punk, surf, and psych. The guitar kicks ass, the songs are even dirtier, and the production sounds like that of an old sixties garage punk 45. Standout tracks include, "Poison Arrow", a dark brooding garage cut with an extremely catchy verse, "Martian", with guitar that harkens back to Apache, and an eerie theramin intro, "Birds and Bees", a 60's punk throwback that is impossible not to thrash to, and "Muckraker", which sounds like an early Iggy Pop song. Overall, this album rules and these guys should be proud for creating something new and awesome out of something old and awesome.
