The word "iconic" is overused these days, but one group which will always fit the tag is The Ramones. The "bruddas" in denim ‘n’ leather burst onto the music scene in the mid 70s with their trademark "1-2-3-4" three-chord anthems, paving the way for every punk band to follow.
Even today, they’re the benchmark for rock "cool" and you can find out why at an exhibition of Ramones photography taking place at ProudCentral in London.
The photos on display were taken during the band’s formative years playing for the prototype punks at New York’s CBGBs. Go along and see a testament to a band who lived fast, and for three quarters of the group, died far too young.
