VIDEO PREMIERE: SNIPER (pre-Ramones) 1973

posted Wednesday Jan 12th, 2022

So we've ALL been anxiously waiting anything, and I mean ANYTHING from the near-mythical pre-RAMONES band SNIPER, fronted by Jeff Hyman (Joey Ramone you pedestrian), and now that glorious day has finally come.

Just today a Spanish Youtube account posted a SNIPER video from a public-access broadcast of a NYC show called Underground Tonight, featuring this INCREDIBLE video by SNIPER. Literally drop everything and watch NOW.

1973, New York.

America was at such a turning point and punk as we know it was just around the corner, but in this "golden hour" before the safety pins and razor blades took hold, PUNK was an unrestrained unrestricted MASS of possibilities, and that we can't ever forget.
