Back in 2012, CJ Ramone and long time Ramones crew member Gene Frawley came to us and asked us to help get his debut solo album pressed and out there, making sure CJ had records to sell when he hit the road. This wasnt a Ramones nostalgia tripthough of course CJ and his band obliged the fans with the requisite classics this was a mission to write and record albums in his own right, that could sit proudly in a Ramones fans collection; carrying on the legacy left by his fallen brothers. So, with the Pirates being the RAMONES diehards we are, it was a no-brainer! In 2014, CJ hooked up with our friends down the street in San Francisco at Fat Wreck Chords. While Fat had released plenty of Ramones-influenced records over the years (Teenage Bottlerocket, Masked Intruder, etc.), they couldnt pass up the opportunity to release a record by an actual Ramone, and subsequently handled CJs next three albums. CJ Ramones second solo album, Last Chance To Dance, was recorded with an all-star backing band of Steve Soto and Dan Root (Adolescents), with David Hidalgo, Jr. (Social Distortion/The Bronx) on drums. With a sound and style true to the Ramones, CJ created a positively infectious punk rock record. Sometimes you just need a Ramones fix, as Joey said, and CJ Ramones Last Chance to Dance satisfies that craving in spades.
