With a name like Cobra Ramone, this girl was destined to be a musician in a rock and roll band that mixes in the blues.

The Vancouver band, taking their name from front woman Cobra Ramone, is playing the Rockwater Grill and Bar on June 18.

Having a mixture of musical favourites like Howlin’ Wolf, Motorhead and O.D.B., has turned Ramone into a Gibson SG wielding musical mutt with roots in whisky soaked blues-rock.

Cobra Ramone has followed the musical forces across Canada and beyond several times. In 2011 she moved to a tiny and dangerous island in South America where she wrote some of the songs on her self-titled record, while avoiding bandits.

With the face-melting genius of Brad Smith, Jay Sparrow and Fred Brenton, Ramone ground out a 10-song record with subjects like the apocalypse, zombies, and the occasional bitter “men are jerks, so throw them off a building” ditties.

In finder her new musical boyfriends (and Vancouver music scene heavy-weight champions) Big Daddy Deachman (drums) and Trevor Snakedust (organs), Cobra Ramone has completed the ultimate musical tri-force.
