Richie Ramone- I Fix This 7” ~EX RAMONES, FEEDERZ, PAGANS!
Richie Ramone- I Fix This 7”. Richard Reinhardt AKA 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 first appeared with the band on their Subterranean Jungle tour. Richie played over 500 shows with the Ramones and wrote several critically-acclaimed and fan-favorite Ramones songs. Joey Ramone once quipped that Richie really saved the band stating “He’s the greatest thing to happen to the Ramones. He put the spirit back in the band.” Since his departure from the Ramones, Richie couldn’t stop playing and got together with Ben Reagen from the Feederz (and later the Pagains) for this fun two songer. The A side is a good pub rock bouncer in the vein of the Lurkers and Chelsea with a nice mid tempo Ramones back beat and Richies absolutely visceral and real vocals that really make the tune. And the B side is a guitar shreddin’ slice of late 70’s New York punk that brings to mind the Heartbreakers and Dead Boys. Produced by Paul Roessler of the Screamers with cool ass cover art by Darren Merinuk.
