Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg came to Finland third time and this time singing duties were handled by party animal Andrew WK. I had really mixed up feelings before the show, because I knew exactly what to wait music wise: Well played Best of The Ramones set. On the other hand, Andrew WK was a big mystery of how he would fit in for vocals. On a first and probably the only introduction on a whole evening Andrew said ” Thanks for coming, now LET’S HAVE SOME FUN!” on a show starter ”Rockaway Beach”, then it all made sense. This is going to be great! Andrew is not a Joey clone and good for that. He had great intensity on vocals and was really pushing hard all set through. Band consisted also two guys from Argentina, guitarist Crazy Joe and Alex “Dee Dee” Blitz on bass & vocals. Their playing was extremely tight and they looked and sounded like they were born to play the Ramones. Marky Ramone was in great shape as usually and kept the beat going powerful and steady through the whole set which was just like it was supposed to be. Some extra drum fills here and there were played which did sound really fresh. No bullshit between the songs, just “1-2-3-4″ to the next song through the set. Only”break” besides the encore break was 20 sec after 20 songs. That’s Punk ‘n’ Roll! Tempo was from Ramones era 1978 – 1980, in other words: Perfect! Songs were chosen mainly from the first classic three Ramones albums (RAMONES, LEAVE HOME and ROCKET TO RUSSIA). All in all this was a great show. Great band. Great songs. This is as close as you can get the real thing on these days. Do yourself a favor and go to see the band live and have a lot’s of fun.
