Television’s Richard Lloyd, speaking in the new issue of Uncut, says the Ramones were, over a short period, more powerful than Led Zeppelin.

On the eve of the band’s 40th anniversary, Uncut pieces together the complete story of the Ramones, with the surviving members, collaborators and friends explaining how the four weirdest kids in New York revolutionised rock.

“It requires a great deal of physical strength to play those downstrokes for half-an-hour,” notes Lenny Kaye. “It’s exhausting to keep that sense of metric propulsion going.”

“Over 23 minutes Led Zeppelin couldn’t match them,” says Lloyd.

The new issue of Uncut is out on Friday (January 31).
