Hey Ho, Let’s Go! Growing up very close to NYC in the seventies you couldn’t turn on the radio without hearing the Ramones. This is one of their early albums and is one of their best, it was released in the year of punk rock, 1977. The album has classics like Sheena is a punk rocker and Rockaway Beach. I wanted to completely cover the black and white illustration of the band in thread so that’s what I did. The album has 6 colors of black, white and shades of gray thread and over 100,000 hand placed stitches to completely cover the album. I then embroidered the bands logo in spiral yarn stitched in neon pink.
