The Ramones, 1974 (Video Included)

Attached please find… The Ramones circa 1974! In an empty CBGB's, the Ramones perform "Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue" "Now I Wanna Get Out Of The Basement" and "Judy Is A Punk". A punk? Now just hang on a minute hanhsta, punk didn't exist in 1974.

But the Ramones sure did. This video from the beginings of time proves one thing without a doubt: They arrived at CGGB's a fully developed musical concept. This isn't proto Ramones, it is pro. Sure the melodies would get better, and sure Jooey would thing better, but otherwise, they didn't change a bit for the next quarter of a century. The leather coats and jeans, the lounging, roaring, tight as fuck, loud fast lRamones are rolling through your brain cells.

Joey is a bit more outgoing then he would become. The figure of a Ramone, hunched over his mic is iconic, but here she steps down and meets his audience, what there is of it, half way.

Needless to say, this is completely fucking awesome.

I knew Joey and he was a great guy, but I didn't meet him till four years after this was filmed. The Ramones are here to stay, they will never die.
