Part requiem, part-eulogy with a sardonic punk twist...it's Dee Dee Ramone's last musical will and testament. Sticking to spare, unsentimental, energized Ramones-like rocking, Dee Dee reels off a high elegiac that is twisted, funny and at times downright morbid.

The tracks range from high-energy, fast punk rock and old school hardcore, to weird acoustic tunes and classic mid-tempo Ramones song structures. Plus, a few things in between. You'll even find hints of electronica in a couple of spots, but the album flows smoothly.
These were Dee Dee's final studio recordings. He sang lead vocals on two songs, played guitar and did background vocals. Unfortunately, he passed away before the record was finished, so the band recorded the song "Dee Dee Deceased" to say farewell in their own punk fashion.
Don't let disappointments like The Ramainz, Dee Dee King or Marky and the Backing Band of the Week keep you away from this one. Sometimes funny, sometimes eerie, sometimes sad...at least this release was worth listening to!
A couple of short little Youth-style fastcore songs like the opening track (Bego Bago), "Louse" and "Yellow."
There were also some cover songs and acoustic numbers. The vocals get kinda scratchy on a couple of songs, but in all, a solid LP...it's FUN!!!
