Sedate Us With Marky Ramone's Pasta Sauce

Posted By on Fri, Sep 17, 2010 at 12:54 PM

After almost a year of working on it in earnest, Marky, the last surviving Ramone, is taking his Marky Ramone's Brooklyn's Own Pasta Sauce to the next level. He's made it available for order ($88 per case, from

"People I knew were like, 'Are you kidding me, you're a DJ not a chef!' And so I said, 'Why not?'" Marky told "It always thrilled me to see my grandpa cook. I had always wanted to do it, and so I went for the opportunity. It was new and I like doing new things. I tested the waters first, and people really liked it, so I'm saying 'Hey, if you want more you can have it!'" He said he intends on donating proceeds to charities that benefit Iraq war vets.

Until FedEx arrives, you'll have to make do with Humphry Slocombe's Gabba Gabba Hey sundae (balsamic caramel ice cream with brownies and cherries) and Gobba Gobba Hey's gobs, tributes to a famous Ramones tune. Both should satisfy the urge to eat in honor of a legendary band.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday.

The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
