Faster... Louder: The Dictatorsí Best 1975-2001 ~ The Dictators
5.0 out of 5 stars Music for mooks, 27 Jun 2014
When music lovers discuss bands and artists hailing from the Big Apple the same old subjects get tossed into the mix - Ramones, Velvet Underground, Dolls, Television etc. You know the ones, you wouldn't be on this page if you didn't. Only the true believer, the cognoscenti if you will, mention the Dictators. This band are New York to the (Big apple) core! No one epitomises the smart mouthed street smart sassiness of that great city like HDM ,Adny and Ross the freakin' Boss. You want huge tunes, you got 'em in spades, you want attitood, you got that. They might be the missing link between nuggets and Rockaway Beach but they ain't no knuckle draggers, even if they do drink coca cola for… Read more

My musical education began when I pinched my elder brother's copy of 'Sladest'. I can still vividly recall staring at the 4 hairy aliens on the front cover, all glitter and buggery grippers. Played the record and loved it, still do.

Fans of Slade, Sweet, Mud etc will love it as will devotees of later bands like Jook, early Cock Sparrer and Slaughter & The Dogs.

The album's got a retro sound - apparently recorded using vintage equipment but… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Guitar Heaven, 20 May 2013
Common with the majority of posts here, I bought The Armoury Show's singles and this album when they were released way back when. To be honest, I was never a big fan of Richard Jobson, his lyrics always struck me as being nonsense-trying to be clever Dick as it were. The one thing that seperates this album from its peers Big Country, Simple Minds etc is the sheer magnificence of the late and certainly great John McGeoch's guitar work. There is a bombast to it but also a fragilty which, to my ears, he never equaled elsewhere in his career. His solo in the title track is worth the price of this collection on its own. I paid nearly £50 a couple of years ago for the original Track records CD… Read more
