about

"That Brad Marino record is amazing. It caught me completely off guard. It was like being back in college and discovering punk all over again." - Adventure Tom

"Your "Basement Beat" album is causing me the kind of problems I don't mind. This is the first LP I've heard this year that doesn't have a weak song on it." - Bill Kelly's Blackhole Bandstand

"Brad Marino has done something different with his latest album Basement Beat. He’s already proved that he can deliver a quality pop/punk/garage album at will. Now, Basement Beat is his version of a Ramone’s album. Brad says right on the cover that “no upstrokes were used in the making of this record”. That’s step one, and you can hear it’s true. Then alliteration in the song titles, he’s done that with: “Rubber Room”, “Communist Creep”. Nancy is a Narcoleptic” and over the top with “Sick Sick Sick Sick” and “Talk Talk Talk Talk”." - Boston Groupie News

"The sound, melodies and the chord changes are all spot on. It’s so obviously a labor of love. There’s not a false note figuratively or literally in the whole project. It does its job by reviving your love of the Ramones again as it serves up its replica Ramones tunes." - Paul Blowfish

With the downtime of the past 2 years I've been writing a lot. As sort of a little songwriting challenge every once in a while I’d write some Ramonescore tunes. It's almost a concept album in that sense. Most of these songs were written in 2020/2021 but a couple are some of my first attempts at songwriting circa 2004!

I was originally going to release this under an alias but decided to just make it a Brad Marino album on the advice of some people whose opinion I trust. It's different than "Looking for Trouble" and "Extra Credit" but It's all rock and roll to me...

NO UPSTROKES WERE USED IN THE MAKING OF THIS RECORD!
