One Question Interviews: Ejector Seats

Fluffy (Ejector Seats-bass/vocals)

SPB: What was your first tape/record/or cd that you ever bought?

Fluffy: That's actually a really tough question...I grew up with an older sister, so I was subjected to her & her pot smoking hippie friends playing a shitload of classic rock: Bad Company, Queen, Deep Purple etc, etc...it was cool...

I liked everything, I slept with a transistor radio under my pillow listening to crappy AM pop radio!!! But EVERYTHING changed when a friend of mine gave me a Sex Pistols tape! That opened me up to a whole new world...discovering bands & LPs that I still absolutely LOVE to this day: the Damned, The Clash, Buzzcocks, but my life changed when I bought the RAMONES It's Alive LP. Nothing was ever the same!!!! I played that album SSOOOOOOOOOO much I'm amazed that it never wore out!!!

Listen, a lot of people love the RAMONES but, after hearing It's Alive, not one of their studio albums is relevant in any way. It’s Alive IS THE RAMONES!!!! I saw them twice within a month of getting this LP at the Capitol Theatre in Sydney, and they played that set verbatim...Gabba Gabba HEY sign and all!!!!

I've seen & heard a lot of music in the 36 years since It’s Alive came out, but that record still gives me chills. It's a band at their peak, there are no producers in the way..this is Raw & Fast Ramones, how they were meant to be heard. How they really were

DON'T EVER BUY A RAMONES LP UNTIL YOU BUY IT'S ALIVE!!! 

RIP-JOHNNY,JOEY, DEE DEE & TOMMY.
