Overview

Marky Ramone, drummer for punk rock icons the Ramones, helped produce and compile this video documentary, which offers a scattershot backstage history of the band, assembled largely from Marky's own archive of High-8 video footage he shot while touring with the group. Ramones: Raw has been transferred to disc in the full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1, and the audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo; the image quality of the material varies quite a bit, but given the rarity of most of the footage, most fans aren't likely to complain. The bulk of the material is in English (some tour footage from Europe and Japan features fans speaking in their native tongues with the guys in the band, who generally appear friendly but incomprehensible in these moments), with no multiple language options included. Topping the list of bonus items is an alternate commentary track in which director John Cafiero is joined by Marky and Johnny Ramone,whose thoughts are enlightening but hardly revelatory most of the time. Also included are several television appearances (including the Ramones likeably surreal guest spot on Space Ghost Coast to Coast), a stack of outtakes (most of which were obviously not included for a reason -- they aren't exactly fascinating), and best of all an Italian television special which features a 27-minute live set by the band from 1980. While several songs from this program are used in the main feature, it's great having the show complete and in sequence, and the footage looks and sounds great. As history, Ramones: Raw isn't much to write home about, but it's a fun collection of home movies for fans, and that Italian footage of the band at their peak alone would justify the purchase of this disc for hardcore devotees.

Just as Elvis, The Beatles, and Brian Wilson would inspire musicians for generations, The Ramones were a catalyst for everything that followed in their wake. Unlike the aforementioned, The Ramones never really achieved commercial success, and yet with the release of their first album in 1976 (not 1979), they sparked a revolution in modern rock music, by stripping away all the window dressing. No synthesizers. No solos. Just 2-minute long pop anthems of teen angst - set against a backdrop of buzzsaw-like guitars and pulsating tribal drums. Though Joey, DeeDee and now Johnny Ramone are no longer with us, the music and spirit of The Ramones will certainly live on with every teenage kid who picks up an electric guitar and strikes his first power chord.
