The Ramones: Rocket to Russia

Kris Needs, ZigZag, December 1977

WHO DOESN'T LIKE the Ramones? Nobody, that's who – unless they're dead or M. Black of Norwich or something. I've had this LP for three days and so far it hasn't been off the turntable. I've pretty well Ramoned myself silly. I've contracted Ramonia...and it feels great! Even as I'm writing this 'Surfin' Bird' is starting to blast forth from the speakers, so I'll just stop writing for a minute and leap around the room.
