When Mickey Leigh – musician and brother of punk rock star Joey Ramone – wrote “I Slept With Joey Ramone – A Punk Rock Family Memoir,” he thought he’d told it all: what it was like to grow up as Joey’s younger brother, how the formation of the Ramones band came to be, the behind the scenes highs and lows of the music business in the tumultuous and exciting punk rock era.  But that is not the end of the story!  The release of the paperback edition features a previously unpublished epilogue, written by Leigh, which bares the shocking drama that ensued following his brother’s death in 2001.

Even though Joey did not live to see it, passing away just weeks before turning 50, Leigh and his mother Charlotte Lesher were determined to keep their promise to celebrate his birthday in a way Joey himself would have done.  Literally within days, an all-star all-out rock and roll super concert and party was conceived and carried out…but not without its own drama.  You will read about why the other band members (Johnny, Marky and CJ Ramone) decided not to perform at the event and the death threats which resulted from the craziness.  Leigh has unveiled the reasons behind the delay in releasing the posthumous Joey Ramone debut solo album, and the continued harrowing negotiations to acquire the tapes for the forthcoming second CD, which Joey’s mother never got to hear.  The deaths of two other founding members of the Ramones – Johnny from cancer and Dee Dee from a drug overdose – also shook the rock world and caused tsunami-like repercussions within Ramones Productions Inc., the company that handles all Ramones-related activities.  When Joey’s and Mickey’s mother Charlotte died suddenly, it left Mickey as Joey’s heir and Linda Cummings as Johnny’s heir as joint heads of RPI – not an easy transition which is ongoing even today.  All this and more is revealed in detail in the new Epilogue included only in the just-released paperback version.

Acclaim for “I SLEPT WITH JOEY RAMONE” has been high and wide.  The New York Post called it “compelling” and the LA Times called it “an authoritative history.”  Rolling Stone Magazine gave the book a 4-star review, and declared it “A powerful story of Punk Rock inspiration” and Publisher’s Weekly proclaimed it “revelatory reading” and a “compelling portrait.”  And Booklist hailed it as “an essential addition to the Ramones files” while Library Journal raves that Leigh “wrote this enlightening book with love and respect…fans will cherish this touching portrait.”  Even fellow rock stars were lavish in their praise: U2’s Bono admitted “I wouldn’t exist as a singer without Joey Ramone.  Blame him” and radio personality and Bruce Springsteen’s long time guitarist, friend and sidekick Steven Van Zandt acclaimed “Mickey’s cool new book is not only important, it’s very, very moving.”

Freak Show Metal Collective THE NEW JACOBIN CLUB Announce 15th Anniversary Celebration

Freak show metal collective The New Jacobin Club has announced they will be celebrating their 15th Anniversary show on May 14th in their hometown of Saskatoon, SK at The Fez (834B Broadway Ave.). Born out of the Canadian prairies, their shocking theatrics and one of kind metal Broadway spectacle full of disturbing eye-popping visuals, which includes stunts with broken glass, machetes, syringes, staple guns, sledgehammers, torches, and the ever-popular flaming hula hoop has garnered the group a cult following of behemoth proportions.

    In addition to their freak show musical, NJC will be premiering re-written and re-orchestrated material from the mid 1990's that will find its way on a limited edition 15th anniversary NJC compilation released later this year.
NJC master The Horde commented on their big 15th.
"We'll be performing again for the first time since last fall as a full seven piece group. We'll still be playing a good chunk of our new album "This Treason," but we've made sure to include songs spanning the 15 years this band's been on stage. We've re-orchestrated and updated a few songs from the 90's, to incorporate the full force of our 2011 line-up into them and forge some links to the band's past. We'll be going into the studio shortly after to record some of these for a 15th anniversary release later this year.
We're also excited to announce that Miss Firecrotch Jones, our resident fire handler (of the Angry Teeth freak show), is hoping to return to the stage with us on May 14th. She spent the better part of the winter in hospital with a serious illness, and for a time in isolation and critical condition. She's been released and has regained a ton of strength and optimism. She's already helped plan parts of the 2011 stage show, which will throw a few new surprises out at our audiences. We're just happy she's recovering so fiercely!"

     Since their conception in 1996, NJC has released an EP and four albums their most recent being "THIS TREASON", a concept CD/DVD based on the tragic medieval life and death of England’s notorious warlord Sir Hugh Despenser.

   NJC has shared the stage with a diverse roster of touring acts such as NASHVILLE PUSSY, GROOVIE GHOULIES, KMFDM, VOLTAIRE and appeared live on stage with Discovery Channel’s freak show reality program GUINEA PIG. 

Show Dates:
April 22, 2011 - Walker's Nightclub - Saskatoon, SK - Voltaire, The New Jacobin Club (acoustic set), The Chase Walker Band
May 14, 2011 - The Fez - Saskatoon, SK - The New Jacobin Club w/ Black Earth (NJC 15th Anniversary Show) - FB Event -
