The Ventures were incredibly popular in Japan.
The guy in the audience at the start of part 2 invented headbanging:
The Ventures played fast and loud.
Johnny Ramone played a Ventures model Mosrite.
Motorheads are speed freaks.
Motörhead paid tribute to the Ramones.
Marky Ramone played with The Ventures.
Billy Zoom saw The Ramones and was inspired to found X.
The Ramonetures and Billy Zoom put out a Ventures-laced album of X covers.
The Ramonetures’ first album consisted of Ventures-inspired Ramones covers.
But to return to the subject of Japan, where it all began …
End of story.
Postscript: I would never encourage anybody with a mood disorder to use drugs of abuse. They’re bad news. But nobody said anything about audio speed. Enjoy!
