Dee Dee Ramone I.C.L.C. - I Hate Creeps Like You [1995]

Dee Dee Ramone I.C.L.C. - I Hate Creeps Like You [1995]:
                              DEE DEE RAMONE                             


In 1992, Dee Dee formed the most successful of his post-Ramones projects, a group named Dee Dee Ramone I.C.L.C. (Inter-Celestial Light Commune), which lasted from 1994 to 1996. The group featured New York City bassist John Carco (formerly of Queens' hardcore group Misguided) who befriended Dee Dee when the two attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings together during the summer of 1992. After writing more than a dozen songs and recording several demos for an upcoming Ramones album with producer Daniel Rey, Dee Dee decided to keep the material for his new band. After working with several drummers and playing several live shows in the New York City area, Dee Dee and Carco moved to Amsterdam to record a four song EP and fourteen track album for Rough Trade Records. I Hate Freaks Like You was released on April 17, 1994, featuring Nina Hagen on two of the album's fourteen tracks. The three-piece line up now consisted of Dee Dee (vocals, guitar), Carco (bass, vocals), and Dutch drummer Danny Arnold Lommen. [Wiki]

Being a huge fan of the Ramones and not having any post on 'em, I must do somethin' about it. Here's Douglas Colvin 2nd and best solo effort features couple o' tunes later landed on Ramones "Adios Amigos" Lp, plus '94 The Chinese Bitch Ep. What to say but... GABBA GABBA HEY. Dig!
