Reading: Death Ramps – Wikipedia
We used to ride our BMXs on these short hills in the woods where we grew up in Sheffield. As six-year-olds they looked like death ramps to us – I constantly thought that ‘d be a cool name for a band. When we started using guest singers like Richard Hawley and Miles Kane on the B-side of our seven-inches we called ourselves the Death Ramps and my copulate Reino Lehtonen-Riley, who owns The Great Frog, knocked up some rings. We ‘ve all got one. [ 4 ]
