They don't get much rawer than this. After the Ramones, Marky, Dee Dee and his wife Barbara Zampini formed the Ramainz to give us more of the same.

Marky pounds the skins in his inimitable powerhouse style in this unadulterated live recording from 2002. Ms Zampini's vocals add a pleasing dimension to the high speed, high power performance. Dee Dee was never the best vocalist but acquits himself well here. As for the set list, it is a straight run through the Ramones back catalogue.

Best played loud (but you probably guessed that anyway). Hey ho, let's go!
