Yesterday, we talked about the return of Australia's queens of pop-punk, The Spazzys' (see HERE) . Today, we're going to re-present to you a bootleg of the band playing in Sydney with Marky Ramone back in 2004. Marky's role in this show, aside from drumming, was to introduce all of the songs with this unbelievable stage banter which sounds somewhere between Paul Stanley and Wayne Newton - "We're gonna get some sun in California now" - and thereby validates an iron rule of showbusiness, "Never let the drummer talk". All the rest of the music is provided by the Spazzys, with usual drummer Allly taking most of the lead vocals. Almost the entire set list consists of Ramones classics done with good spunk but the two exceptions, a take on Joey Ramone's version of "It's a Wonderful World" and the Spazzys own, very fitting, "I Wanna Cut My Hair Like Marky Ramone" really makes this a fascinating document .
