As the band embarks on a US Tour this September, relocating to New York City and prepares to release their new single and video for the song “Ugly Thing”, we took the opportunity to revamp the band’s website. Today we relaunched http://persephonesbees.com making the site more web 2.0 friendly and lay the groundwork for further updating. In conjunction, we also relaunched Persephone’s Bees’ MySpace page with the new 2.0 profile they offer.
Stay tuned, there’s much more coming soon.
Johnny Ramone invented the relentless; down stroke guitar sound that defined not only the groundbreaking sound of the legendary Ramones, but the guitar voice of the punk rock movement in general. Listed in Time Magazine’s “10 greatest electric guitar players” and named #16 in Rolling Stone Magazine’s top 100 guitarists of all-time.
Johnny was the driving force behind the Ramones sometimes referred to as a drill sergeant, bringing order and regiment to the band. This is evident in the speed, accuracy and intensity of their music. Johnny kept the Ramones focused and moving forward, ultimately securing their place in rock history. The Ramones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 18, 2002.
AtomicPopMonkey is extremely honored and thrilled to announce the launch of the brand new Official Johnny Ramone web-site, which was designed and developed by working closely with JRA Chief of Staff, John Cafiero. The new site features illustrations by Shepard Fairey and Sam Fout.
I also designed the postcard / flier for The 6th Annual Johnny Ramone Tribute. This year’s event takes place Sunday July 25, 2010 at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles where Johnny’s memorial statue and Dee Dee’s resting place are. Special guests include Kirk Hammett from Metallica, Surviving founding member and Ramones drummer, Tommy Ramone, and “Rock ‘N’ Roll High School” actresses PJ Soles (Riff Randell) and Dey Young (Kate Rambeau).
Featured this year is a double feature of Roger Corman’s classic “Rock ‘N’ Roll High School” and Johnny’s all time favorite horror movie, James Whale’s 1935 classic “The Bride of Frankenstein”. Net proceeds from the tribute go to aid funding of cancer research.

We just finished designing and printing up two new designs for Persephone’s Bees merch with the folks at CinderBlock. These shirts are available at their current run of shows in New York, and should be available online mid summer from their site.
The “Honeycomb” design is available in black and grey shirts for men, and in black and blue women’s sizes, as well as black tote bags.
The second shirt design is based on a handmade shirt Angelina Moysov made which says “I Love Rock ‘N Roll” in Russian; and is only available in black men’s and women’s.

We also fire up a countdown on JuiceheaD’s site for their new 7″ single release at juiceheadmusic.com, which features artwork by Joe King, and was laid out by AtomicPopMonkey under the art direction of John Cafiero.
Lots more coming up soon!
This is the fourth site I’ve built for Patrick, this time in preparation for his latest release “Come What Will” (available April 6, 2010 from Badman Recording Co.) Preorders will be available soon.
Patrick Park and Mia Kirby gave me some guidelines and sample links to work with.Â The goal being something clean, sparse, simple yet elegant ; making the music the main focus. WordPress is involved so they could update the news and tour dates themselves.Â The lettering was done by hand by Antonio Adriano Puleo, adding a personal touch.
Additional videos, photos and content will be added up on the release of “Come What Will”.
