The birth of Punk!!!,
This review is from: Go Girl Crazy (Audio CD)
Absolutely seminal record that influenced (and predated) the Ramones, the Sex Pistols (just listen to those Steve Jonesey guitar chords) and a whole lot of other brilliant music.
This still sounds fresh loud and ragged, it'll blow your head off!!
The Dictators were ahead of their time in terms of music, lyrics (the irony of "we knocked 'em dead in Dallas, they didn't know we were Jews") and rock n' roll attitude.
Every song (even the cover of Sonny & Cher's "I got you babe") is dripping with sarcastic wit.
BUY THIS AND THEN BUY ALL THEIR OTHERS! They may not all be on CD yet so hunt them down any way you can!
You owe it to your rock n' roll soul!
