Brad Marino has announced a brand new full length and released the lead single, That Girl. Marino is set to release Basement Beat, his first Ramonescore album, on October 14th via Rum Bar Records for CD, Hey Pizza Records for LP, and Memorable But Not Honorable Tapes for cassette. With the downtime of the past two years Marino has been writing a lot. As sort of a little songwriting challenge every once in a while he’d write some Ramonescore tunes. It’s almost a concept album in that sense. Most of the songs were written in 2020/2021 but a couple are some of his first attempts at songwriting circa 2004.

“This record is exciting for me because it’s a bit different than the first two. It’s more straight ahead punk rock in that 77 Ramones style. It was intentional. I wanted to make a stripped down punk record in the classic 76/77 sound. Like if they did a 4th Tommy Ramone era LP.“
