Marky Ramone - Start Of The Century I.
The first CD contains both Marky Ramone & The Intruders CDs from the 90s (both of which were sadly underrated), and the second CD is live Ramones covers. I love the Ramones, but the second disc is basically like listening to a Ramones cover band. The Intruders stuff is what's worth the price of admission. No, it's not exactly the Ramones, but it's not a far cry from them, either. The Intruders are snottier and more darkly personal, but the trademark drumming is there, as is the occasional silly lyric. Some songs are gritty in a '77 way; others are homages to pop (check out the cover of "Nowhere Man" and the Phil Spector-meets-Queers "Don't Blame Me" featuring Joan Jett). But for the most part, the Intruders have a straight-up fast snotty punk sound, not unlike Screeching Weasel and early Rancid and other bands that were deeply influenced by the Ramones. The only bad thing is that the tracklist seems mixed up - I don't recall his solo album songs in this order and I hear various vocals all over the place - so it's not linear. Otherwise, it's brilliant to have the Intruders' output on one CD. Ramones fans will have their assorted beefs, but fans of Screeching Weasel-type punk will be in heaven. C&P.
