DEE DEE RAMONES - I HATE FREAKS LIKE YOU
Dee Dee Ramone's second solo full-length, the beautifully titled, 'I Hate Freaks Like You', sprung up in 1994 after a half decade wait since 'Standing In The Spotlight.'
Featuring German vocalist Nina Hagen on 'Lass Mich in Ruhe' as well as an alternative version of 'I'm Making Monsters For My Friends' (a track that would end up appearing on the Ramones' 'iAdios Amigos!' the following year, along with 'It's Not For Me To Know), the album doubled down on Dee Dee's capabilities while strengthening the creative resolve between him and collaborator Daniel Rey.
In exchange for giving up his solo material to the band the following year, Dee Dee managed to slip in his own charging rendition of 'All's Quiet On The Eastern Front' from 1981's 'Pleasant Dreams', giving the record its own integral balance within the leather jacket maelstrom legacy of The Ramones.
