In between picking the kids up from school and dropping them off at their play dates, the Ramoms like to crank up the volume and blast out a mean Ramones cover. They’ve done it before - a split with Bad Brains cover band Dad Brains -  and they are doing it again now with ‘Problem Child’.

Jodi (vocals), Sharon (guitar), Molly (bass), and Ginger (drums) treat us to ‘Gritty Is A Punk’ (‘Judi Is A Punk’ but dedicated to the Philadelphia Flyers’ new mascot), their take on ‘Blitzkrieg Bop’ which has been dubbed ‘Boogie Not Snot’ for the occasion and a straightforward cover of ‘Rockaway Beach’.

‘Problem Child’ is a fun enough release to listen to but the best thing about the Ramoms is still their band name.


Track listing:

  1. Gritty Is A Punk

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
