Go Girl Crazy!
Without The Dictators there would have been no Ramones, and a world without The Ramones is not one we want to contemplate.
Fronted by ‘Handsome’ Dick Manitoba, on Go Girl Crazy The Dictators pioneered the punk amalgam of garage, attitude and old-fashioned rock’n’roll, and their influence is clear in every band to have carried the punk tag since. This album’s greatest legacy, however, is the genuine sense of humour it betrothed to all those who followed: any band that can get away with a song called Master Race Rock has got to be worth a listen.
Manitoba now runs the coolest rock’n’roll dive in NY.
