THE RAMAINZ: [2003] Live in New York City [Trama]

Raw and rip-roaring live album by trio featuring Dee Dee and Marky Ramone covering many familiar punk anthems as well as a few unreleased tracks. No overdubs were added to the recording, making the listening experience as sweaty and energetic as the live experience. 21 tracks, all recorded at the Continental in New York City. 1999 release. It was late 1996; Joey Ramone was working on a solo album and guitarist Johnny Ramone had retired to suburban luxury. Longtime drummer Marky Ramone had his band the Intruders, but there was unease in the musical fantasyland that was the Ramones. It was in this vacuum that the Ramainz were formed.
Originally calling themselves "the Remains," because they were all that remained of the legendary punk rockers, Marky Ramone and original bassist Dee Dee Ramone put the band together as a live project to perform Ramones songs (many of which were written by Dee Dee in the first place). Sporadic live shows were performed in 1996-1997, mostly in and around New York City, with Dee Dee on guitar and vocals, C.J. Ramone on bass, and Marky on drums. Dee Dee's wife, Barbara Zampini (aka Barbara Ramone), filled in on bass after C.J. departed; Ben Trokan of the Intruders was added later on guitar. After a couple of years of playing, they changed the band's name to the Ramainz to avoid potential conflicts with Barry & the Remains.
