"On September 13th, 1978, the Ramones were guests in the TV studios of Radio Bremen. It was the first TV appearance of the band in Europe at all. For the successful TV series Musikladen they played 25 titles in about 50 minutes and left an ecstatic audience. Here is this unbelievable appearance, unabridged with all encores, for the first time on vinyl & DVD. For the band it must have been quite a shock when they entered the stage at the TV studio of Radio Bremen. Although the slightly ragged backdrop of Musikladen was okay to Joey, Dee Dee, Johnny, and Marky Ramone, it was not so for the bulk of their audience. Director and editor Joerg Sonntag, former assistant of Mike Leckebusch, recalls in an interview (included as a bonus feature on the DVD) that the night before the concert he strolled around the bars and pubs of Bremen and gave away free tickets. The Ramones performed songs mostly taken from their first two albums, and ended up leaving the audience overwhelmed. For the American punk legends, this first European TV appearance was a hard-fought breakthrough in Europe."
