Black Heart Booking & A-13 Punk Rock present...
Cj Ramone made his name as a member of the greatest punk band of all time, and nearly 25 years after that experience, it'd be understandable if Ramonenow spent his days resting on his legacy and tsk-tsking the state of punk rock. But The Holy Spell, Ramone's new solo album out May 10 on Fat Wreck Chords, joyfully celebrates his undiminished love of music. It's right there in the title. "I never lost that magical feeling that you get from music, and that's where the title came in," he says. "The bands that I listened to when I was young that I really enjoyed, I can still put that music on now, and it still has the same magic for me."
Full of fist-pumping punk-but not limited to it-The Holy Spell pays tribute to that magic in a variety of ways. Notably, a pair of sly covers hearken back to Ramone's childhood: He would hear Dave Edmunds' "Crawling from the Wreckage" on the portable radio he played in bed at night, and Webb Pierce's 1953 hit "There Stands the Glass" recalls his parents' love for classic country.
Dog Party Catchy melodies, tight harmonies, fuzz pedals and big drums; what more could you possibly want
in a rock and roll band? Formed in 2007 by sisters Gwennie and Lucy Giles, the duo draws influence from the classic sounds of the Ramones as well as contemporaries Ty Segall to synthesize their own unique style. Careful listeners will also notice a nod to bands like Cub and Tiger Trap, the former of Sacramento, CA lineage as well.
