29 JUNI RICHIE RAMONE (US) + KING HOBO DEATHMACHINE (ex Fiends) + LULA

Vi är fantastiskt stolta att efter förra årets succéspelning hälsa Richie Ramone tillbaka till Garaget.

Förvänta er en kväll fylld av Ramones klassiker samt låtar från Richies soloalbum.

Richie Ramone is the fastest, most powerful drummer who ever played with the legendary punk rock band the Ramones. He joined the Ramones in 1983 and first appeared with the band on their Subterranean Jungle tour.

Richie performed in over 500 shows around the world with the Ramones and wrote several critically-acclaimed and fan-favorite songs for the albums Animal Boy, Too Tough to Die and Halfway to Sanity. Punk rock icon, Joey Ramone, remarked that “[Richie] saved the band as far as I’m concerned. He’s the greatest thing to happen to the Ramones. He put the spirit back in the band.”

Richie is notable as the only Ramones drummer to sing lead vocals on Ramones songs, ”(You) Can’t Say Anything Nice” as well as the unreleased “Elevator Operator.” Richie was also the only drummer to be the sole composer of Ramones songs including their hit “Somebody Put Something in My Drink” which remained a staple in the Ramones set list until their last show in 1996 and continues to be covered by new generations of bands worldwide. “Somebody Put Something in My Drink” was included on “Ramones Mania,” the first Ramones album to go gold as well as “Loud, Fast Ramones: Their Toughest Hits,” an album comprised of songs hand picked by Johnny Ramone as the Ramones’ best works. Richie also wrote ”I’m Not Jesus,” ”Can’t Say Anything Nice,” ”I Know Better Now,” ”Humankind” and ”Smash You” which became the title track for one of the Ramones’ most successful re-releases, Smash You: Live ’85. Richie’s ”I’m Not Jesus” took the Ramones in a heavier direction and has become a frequent cover tune for innumerable heavy metal bands. Richie’s songwriting contributions were supported by Joey Ramone: “I encouraged Richie to write songs . . . we never let anybody else write our songs.”

n 2011, the Recording Academy gave the Ramones a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in Los Angeles, where all three of the band’s drummers (Tommy, Marky and Richie Ramone) stood beneath the same roof for the first time ever. In 2012, Richie was the only surviving Ramone featured on the second Joey Ramone solo album, “Ya Know?” On October 8, 2013, Richie released his first solo album, ”Entitled,” which features new songs written by Richie as well as new recordings of songs he wrote for the Ramones. Billboard notes, ”Richie’s 12 freshest cuts aim to please fans of both rock and metal with its blend of power chord-chugging simplicity and guitar hero virtuosity.”

Richie released his second CD, ”Cellophane,” in August 2017 and in April 2018 the single ”The Last Time” dedicated to his father who recently passed away.

Jono 17 Augusti

Den 17 Augusti presenterar vi stolt JONO till Garagets scen.

Gotlandsbaserade Jono startade som sångaren Johan Norrbys solo-projekt 2006, men då första skivan spelades in tillsammans med flera av nuvarande bandmedlemmar bildades sedan bandet Jono.
Musiken kan bäst beskrivas som melodiös hårdrock med symfoniska och progressiva inslag. Starka melodier och bombastiska arrangemang, samt en dynamisk modern fet ljudbild är viktiga ingredienser i Jonos musik.

Alla bandmedlemmar har spelat musik i otaliga band och projekt tidigare genom åren. Gitarristen Stefan Helleblad är medlem i Holländska metalbandet Within Temptation och trummisen Nicka Hellenberg spelade trummor på nämnda bands album ”The Unforgiving”.

Jonos senaste album ”Life” har fått ett mycket bra mottagande både hos publiken som av recensenterna. Jonos musik har liknats vid stora artister som Queen, Supertramp, Kansas, Journey och Sparks, men framförallt har de hyllats för sitt unika sound och spektakulära framträdanden.

Efter succén med de egenfinansierade albumen ”Requiem” 2013 och ”Silence” 2015, så skrev man kontrakt med Frontiers Records och albumet ”Life” släpptes den 1 december 2017.

”If there was a shining candidate for hard rock album of the year, Jono’s ”Life” is arguably it. Grab ”Life” by the balls and take it”
9,5 of 10 points! Crome Magazine (USA)

”Jono is aunique band in today’s melodic rock of Sweden, with nice features of Queen, Supertramp and Sparks, featured in a nice AOR and hard rock production”
8 of 10 points! Sweden Rock Magazine

”Other than superlatives, there is nothing else to be said about it; passionate, explosive, dramatic and performed at highest industry standards, radiating emotion and solemnness from start to finish.
(…) There are many layers to be heard and enjoyed, making this album a particularly exquisite pleasure for fans of the genre.
A must-listen” Midland Rocks (UK)

”The instrumental work is technically flawless, and gives the impression that every second of music was carefully thought out. (…)
My friends, this disc has no negative aspects. A highly recommended release for everyone who likes good music, and MANDATORY for anyone who likes Queen. Listen!!!”
10 out of 10! Metal La Nata (Brazil)

”ALBUM OF THE YEAR – 2017″
