Collider’s bio talks more about the Ramones then it does about the band.
Granted, Collider seems pretty tightly ingrained with the New York music community,
they even have Tom Erdelyi (more famously known as Tommy Ramone) in the producer’s
chair. Band frontman / keyboardist Jed Davis even has a footnote in Ramones history,
having written and performed on the tribute song “The Bowery Electric”
that the surviving Ramones recorded after Joey’s death.So while it usually
goes unsaid that modern pop-punk bands are heavily influenced by the Ramones,
Collider seems to have enough of a connection to warrant it.
Its funny how entwined this EP is elements of Ramones lore: Arturo Vega created the cover art, CJ Ramone contributes a “1-2-3-4” shout to the song “Say Yeah,” Joey’s quoted in the press release as calling Davis “brilliant.” Yet for the all the namedropping, Collider really have enough going for them that they can stand on their own. While WCYF is at times overbearingly poppy, it’s definately a lot of fun.
