Teenage Morrissey’s Scathing Review Of The Ramones

In 1976, a then-17 year old Steve Morrissey wrote a review to Melody Maker of the Ramones. Spoiler alert: he hated them.

The July 1976 issue of Melody Maker magazine includes a review of The Ramones from one Steve Morrissey of Stretford, Manchester.

Apparently he loved The New York Dolls and Patti Smith but thought the Ramones were “a bumptious band of degenerate no-talents”.

The issue of Melody Maker is on sale from eBay right now.
