I Wanna Be Sedated

The Ramones


This post is for Richard, a great, old friend of mine who was recently posted to Timor for six months. Look after yourself mate!! We have been jamming together for the last year or two and had just started to play this great Ramones track together. So I thought it would be an appropriate track to post.

Also, every year the very friendly and helpful Tim from Tym Guitars organises Ramone-a-thon to, in his words, "say thanks to the greatest band who will EVER walk this earth". This year it will take place over the weekend of November 10th and 11th here (as always) in my hometown of Brisbane, Australia. All profits from Ramone-a-thon go to charity and more information can be found here. Tim's band Roshambo also play every year.

Tim hand builds and sells (in very small quantities) some very groovy Mosrite-influenced guitars and basses, and also has some cool second hand guitars for sale (including a 1973 Gretsch Roc Jet from my own collection), so if you're looking for something different, check out Tym Guitars.

And just in case you need more reason's to check out Tym's guitars, he has done work and sold instruments to bands such as J Mascis, The Hellacopters, Trail of Dead, as well as local legends Brad Shepherd (of Fun Things, Hoodoo Gurus and The Monarchs amongst many others), Magic Dirt, Grinspoon, Screamfeeder and The Spazzys.

I have posted some videos of cover versions of I Wanna Be Sedated, all courtesy of You Tube.
