The Ramones have spawned many “tribute bands” around the world, such as
The Gabba Gabba Heys, or...
The Good, The Bad, & The
The Pinheads from Chicago, or...
The Pinheads from Cleveland.
There are also many Ramonas.
There are the L.A. Ramonas now known as The Sheenas (all fems)...
the U.K. Ramonas (mostly fems)...
even the Bavarian Ramonas (dudes ???).
The (original) Ramonas...
But the original Ramonas were from San Francisco & were not a "tribute" or "cover" band. They were four women who loved the Ramones & if anything, their music was an homage to the punk foursome (think The Donnas only punkier). The Ramonas performed throughout the Bay Area, once opening for Nirvana at the Warfield & on Dec. 17, 1999, played a reunion show at the official Ramones CyberPunk Blitz at CBGB, New York City.
The Ramonas are: Kitze - vocals; Suzze - guitar; Patty - bass; & Shelly - drums.
Their song "Santa's Got A GTO!" appears on Rodney on the Roq's Fave X-Mas Songs cd., Dionysus Records 1997. You can listen to it here.
They released one 45rpm EP, Out of the Basement (12"), Detour Records 1990, one cassette, Santa's Got a GTO! (fan club only, limited ed. of 100), 1991, & one 7", Misdirected/I Don't Like You/She's A Bitch, Detour Records 1992.
All the Ramonas music was recorded at Lowdown Studios in San Francisco.
