Competition: Win Joey Ramone Vinyl
25 May 2012
"We've got copies of the punks recent single 'Rock 'n' Roll Is The Answer' and the album 'Ya Know' on vinyl to give away, all you have to do is answer our attempted at the worlds easiest question..."
A new Joey Ramone album entitled ‘Ya Know?’ will be released on May 30th. Compiled by Joey’s brother Mickey Leigh, the fifteen-track album primarily consists of previously unheard songs written and performed by the late Ramones frontman, songwriter and visual icon. The album was previewed with the release of a coloured 7” vinyl A-side single featuring ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Is The Answer’ and ‘There’s Got To Be More To Life’ which was issued on April 21st as part of this year’s Record Store Day.
Named after a phrase that was a staple of Joey’s conversation, ‘Ya Know?’ adds a significant new chapter to the seminal punk icon's hugely influential body of work. The tracks were drawn from a cache of demos and unreleased recordings that Joey had cut at various times during the last decade and a half of his life. It's a riveting collection of first-rate songs that embody Joey's trademark intensity, wit and infectious hooksmanship, and that can stand proudly alongside his most beloved Ramones compositions. It's also a fitting, if belated, follow-up to Joey's first solo album ‘Don't Worry About Me’, which was recorded just prior to his death in 2001 and released the following year.
We've got three copies of the coloured 7" and three copies of the full album to give away, all you have to do to win is answer the question below that is so easy we feel silly even asking it.
Which one of the following bands did Joey Ramone play in?
A.) The Ramones
