1-2-3 -4 !

Another compilation purchased in Granton on Spey was 1-2-3-4! one of the occasional Mojo Roots of Series - in this case obviously the Roots of The Ramones
It includes the likes of the Seeds, the Shangri-Las and Love who you would imagine influenced the Bruddas.
It also includes contemporaries such as Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers, Wayne County and Television.
Not sure how they constitute the roots of the Ramones.
A minor quibble as the music is terrific

Here are the Bruddas with Walter Lure of the Heartbreakers with a Stones cover, Ronnie Spector with a Joey Ramone song and a band who clearly also influenced the Cramps

1-2-3-4 !

Walter Lure & the Ramones - Street Fighting Man

Ronnie Spector - She Talks to Rainbows

The Trashmen - Bird Dance Beat


  1. Great stuff CC. Have a copy of this CD myself and must have a search for it. One of the better giveaways in recent years.


  2. I always look out for Mojo CDs in charity shops myself these days. Can't afford to buy the mag anymore, but I'll splash out 50p for a good cause and some cool tunes.

  3. Just looked this one up. Strong tracklist. Would be quite happy to see a part two at some point.
