Autor Nicholas Rombes
en Limba Engleză Paperback – iun 2005
What could be more punk rock than a band that never changed, a band that for decades punched out three-minute powerhouses in the style that made them famous? The Ramones' repetition and attitude inspired a genre, and Ramones set its tone. Nicholas Rombes examines punk history, with the recording of Ramones at its core, in this inspiring and thoroughly researched justification of his obsession with the album.

In 128 pages, Nicholas Rombes confronts some of our most closely held ideas about punk in general and the Ramones in particular: that they were poor kids from bad neighborhoods, that they rebelled against traditional notions of success in the rock industry, that they invented punk, that their use of swastikas and other questionable imagery can or should be easily explained. That he's not susceptible to the band's enduring myths makes his analysis that much more precise and allows him to describe the songs with the verve of a true fan.
The nifty 33 1/3 book series publishes cool little books that dive deep into individual canonical rock 'n' roll albums. Ramones/Ramones is undoubtedly a worthy addition to their catalog. . Rombes does a concise job of laying out a solid thesis (complete with a chart), detailing the various early waves of punk (or new wave, as the terms are proved interchangeable) and approaching these topics in a thoughtful but fun way. . This book got me thinking about this culture in ways I never had before.
