The Vindictives

Leave Home

Liberation

Why cover one song when you can cover an entire album?

The Vindictives ask that musical question with their tribute to the Ramones, in covering the great 1977 album, Leave Home. And they do it in a very vindictive style of punk…

Naturally, the songs include such “Pinhead,” “Suzy Is A Headbanger,” “Commando,” and “Sheena Is A Punk Rocker.” And don’t forget more obscure Ramones’ classics “You Should Never Have Opened That Door,” “Babysitter,” “Glad To See You Go,” and “Swallow My Pride.”

A good treat for Ramones fans from six to sixty. Liberation Records, P.O. Box 17746, Anaheim, CA 92817
