Q: What do condoms and Teenage Head have in common? A: Marky Ramone. That’s right, the dude who hit the skins for the Ramones from 1978 to 1983 and then again from 1987 to 1996 has been busy launching a line of condoms (dubbed “Too Tuff To Break”) and collaborating with Canada’s best-loved retro punks, Teenage Head.
While their songs are a little longer than the Ramones’ famous buzz-saw blitzkriegs, fans looking for a taste of true 70s punk will not be disappointed. You can sing the chorus to I Wanna Be Sedated over Full Time Fool, but Top Down offers some top-shelf guitar licks.
Teenage Head get down at Healy’s on Friday (April 25).
