When the punk rock band The Ramones got together in 1974, no-one was playing the kind of “sound” they wanted, so they created their own.
In this rare interview the late Ramone brothers, Joey and Dee Dee, talk about forming the band, the early days of few fans and harsh critics, their musical influences, the “messages” in their songs (encouraging teenagers to sniff glue, perhaps?) and more. Enjoy!
You can listen to music from The Ramones and other artists of the 1970s on Dusty Discs Radio.
