THE SATISFACTORS-Johnny Commando

jc1When Bongo Boy Records let me know that they were releasing a single from The Satisfactors as a tribute to Johnny Ramone, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was always a fan of The Ramones. “I Wanna Be Sedated” and “Rock & Roll High School” are still active on my playlists. “Johnny Commando“, set for release on March 10/14 is a wonderful ride back to bbNew York City’s 1970’s punk heyday. Bruce Ferguson ( The Easy Outs) delivers kick ass vocals, with inflections and nuances that remind me of Joey Ramone. The guitar is simple, yet driving, with a dynamite riff and solo. The chorus is fabulous, driving me to rock and bop as I listened. The harmonies are perfectly punk, the transitions amazing, and the hook kills. Produced by Kurt Reil (The Gripweeds) and Jersey’s godfather of garage, Gar Francis, what else should I have expected? This song is punk in all its glory. Johnny Ramone would be impressed. Now I am going to have another listen. Get your hands on your own copy as soon as you can. “Hey Ho, Johnny Commando”!
