Up To Twelve

I saw End Of The Century: The Story Of The Ramones this weekend. It was superb. If you are even slightly into The Ramones, or rock in general, you need to see this. These guys didn't just play punk, they were punk. Tap will never seem the same again...

It was part of a double bill at The Clapham Picture House. The other half was Coffee and Cigarettes, but that went so far over my head that I didn't even feel the wind. There was one obvious theme to start with - people talking but not communicating - but that seemed to tail off towards the second half, and all I was left with was a bunch of unconnected short films with a few shared lines. Some of it was funny, but I'm sure that I missed the point.

If you like The Ramones then you need to generate yourself a Ramones name.

So ... the last half of Coffee and ... whatever ... was talking but not communicating, eh?
