RAMRODS, THE: Gimme Some Action: CD

Jun 22, 2007

The best that I can figure, the Ramrods were evidently a Detroit band from the 1970s who sounded a hell of a lot like Iggy and the Stooges and even played covers of some of their songs as well as ones from the Beatles and the Who. For some reason, someone thought it would be a good idea to release this album of their music (including the covers) over twenty-five years later. I have never heard of the Ramrods. Why anyone thought this would be a good idea is beyond me. The audacity to sound a lot like the Stooges on your original stuff (except not quite as punk) and then cover them seems pretty incredulous. Recommended only for music fans stuck in 1970s Detroit.
