The name may sound a bit funny [sounds like a small RAMONE.. like PLATITO for a small PLATE.. LOL], but once you hear them play, you’ll forget about that name and may reminisce another band, The RAMONES.
That ain’t no false pretense, I’m speaking in behalf of every Ramones fan [nah! just kidding, maybe one or two or three local Ramone fan.. LOL!]. Well here’s a piece of information from their myspace page..
Started around late 1999 or early 2000(can’t really remember) as an unofficial side project with Johnny(abnrmls,astroboy) on guitar & vocals, Fern(mosquito killers,who’s next,brownbeat allstars) on bass & vocals, and Renmin( agaw agimat) on drums… Remugsfuel(happy days) jammed on one of the show and few jam sessions… played on and off shows during that year and had to put it to rest coz all the members were busy doing their own thing with their bands…not much going on with his band Astroboy coz they were all busy(whatever that means), Johnny decided to re-live Ramonitos few months ago… they have a new line up with FaroSol on bass/vocals and Allen(happy days)on drums. They still maintain the Pop Punk rock& roll sound and attitude and you could definitely think of one band when you get to hear their music……….R.A.M.O.N.E.S The band is currently making songs and hopefully hit the studio and come up with their first record…it’s time to bring back what pop punk rock is all about….simple & fun….check them out.
Just got an information that from an online forum, that they are indeed recording an album right now [hope it’s true]. If you have time, you can check them out in some local gigs in the Metro. Last time I saw them play was on SRA’s 13th Anniversary[did not really spend too much time there as I had other appointments.. LOL!]
Check them out or their myspace page..
