Aquarium Drunkard, aka Justin Gage, released an awesome project a couple weeks back called RAM On L.A., a tribute to the Paul McCartney classic, RAM. He gathered a bunch of hip, East Los Angeles bands together like Earlimart, Bodies of Water and The Parson Redheads to create a beautiful, contemporary version of this classic record. The album is amazing and it’s suggested that everyone who downloads the songs donate money to No More Landmines, a cause that Paul proudly supports.

I’m a big fan of RAM, some of you might remember I put Ram On onto the +KN Mixtape Sunshine Sometime, it’s an absolutely amazing song. Since I’m kinda nutty, I decided to create my own cover to this sweet comp’, because… well… the original artwork needed some love.

Below is the tracklisting, download it here.

    Same here. Noticed they’re all linked to AD’s site. Maybe he’s got some htaccess or mod_rewrite magic happening (understandably)?

    Yeah, I didn’t try that last night. I added link to DL from.

    So do we have to DL each track individually? Or am I missing something? (It’s finals, what can I say?!)

  8. Lori March 16, 2009 at 8:24 PM

    Hats off to this one!

    and I love the cover too Bobby.

    Thanks for posting this! Ram was one of my favorite albums (although I only had it on cassette) as a kid, and I’d kind of forgotten about it. Awesome.

    “East” Los Angeles bands?

    Yeah…I don’t think so.

  11. Bobby March 17, 2009 at 5:00 PM

    Well both Justin from Aquarium Drunkard and I both live in the east side, so we might have an idea…? Maybe?

    Don’t criticize unless you can back it up, my friend.
