Marky Ramone + Andrew W.K. Give ‘Shock Treatment’ to New York City Fans

The pairing of Marky Ramone and Andrew W.K. may seem odd at first glance, but the duo teaming up to perform Ramones classics makes perfect sense. The Ramones make you wanna dance and Andrew W.K. makes you wanna party — combine the two, and you’ve concocted a formula to create an unforgettable live experience.

We checked out Andrew W.K.’s first ever show as frontman for Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg, which took place in the spring at Santos Party House in New York City, a venue of which Andrew is part-owner. The small club gig packed with eager fans was like a time warp back to the days of CBGB’s, but for the group’s second NYC gig, they moved their way on up to Irving Plaza.

Although not as intimate as the Santos Party House gig, Blitzkrieg’s Oct. 5 set sent the crowd into a gleeful frenzy. In the Ramones’ signature never-stop-playing style, Blitzkrieg plowed through over 30 Ramones fan favorites such as ‘Blitzkrieg Bop,’ ‘Cretin Hop,’ ‘The KKK Took My Baby Away’ and even Joey Ramone’s brilliant cover of Louie Armstrong’s ‘What a Wonderful World.’

In a recent interview with both Marky Ramone and Andrew W.K., the iconic Ramones drummer shared exactly how pleased he was with his new collaboration with the ‘Human Party Machine.’ “We’ll always be doing this in one way or another,” says Marky. “Hopefully, eventually, we as a team can write some originals, too.”

Marky Ramone’s Blitzrkrieg featuring Andrew W.K are set to perform some more gigs this year, both in the U.S. an in Europe, before packing it in for the time being. Check out our exclusive photos of Marky Ramone’s Blitzrkrieg from the band’s Oct. 5 gig in NYC.
