It took forever to finish, but alas, here it is: the debut full-length of Bad Chopper is finally out and ready for consumption. For those of you who don't know, Bad Chopper is the new band of ex-Ramone CJ Ward. This outfit has been called the best ex-Ramone effort out of them all, and I would have to agree. CJ brings his signature songwriting and sense of melody to these 13 tracks of simple yet effective rockin' punk tunes. Not attempting to resurrect the Ramones, but rather just channelling his innate gift for writing great catchy, from-the-hip punk rock. One listen to this and you'll understand how he made the cut in that most important punk rock institution that was the Ramones. This recording is given loving production care by longtime Ramones collaborator/producer Daniel Rey and features lead work by the great Walter Lure (Heartbreakers/Waldos).
