HUNTINGTONS: Judy Judy
Check it out! We are pronounced that the Huntingtons are returning Back to Ramonia!
In 1996, with the best and most ambitious intentions, THE HUNTINGTONS recorded a selection of our favorite Ramones songs. The HUNTINGTONS released these covers under the title “Rocket To Ramonia” through our friend Scott Hatch who had just launched an independent label, Burnt Toast Vinyl, that same year.
After a few years of dedicating themselves to becoming the best Ramonescore band we could be, it became painfully obvious that we’d made “Rocket To Ramonia” before figuring out the fine intricacies of Ramones. In 1999 the HUNTINGTONS selected a new batch of tunes to cover and released them as “File Under Ramones”. 8 months later the the HUNTINGTONS found themselves on stage with Joey Ramone at CBGBs playing an entire set as his backing band. 9 months after that, the HUNTINGTONS traveled across the pond and made our first trek through Europe supporting a band Marky Ramone was playing drums for. 2 months later, the HUNTINGTONS were back at CBGBs for another set with Joey. Flash forward to 2015, the HUNTINGTONS' guitarist and drummer, Josh and Chris, are traveling the country and eventually the world playing as part of CJ Ramone’s band.
In 2021, “Rocket To Ramonia” celebrates its 25th anniversary and with that in mind, the HUNTINGTONS went back into the studio this past February to re-record "Rocket to Ramonia" (ETA release date Summer 2021).
But before that, here's Judy Judy! Enjoy!
