The Dictators should have been one of the most famous and revered rock 'n' roll bands of all time. But the music industry is a fickle one, and things that seem obvious in hindsight were rarely so clear at the time. The band's debut album, Go Girl Crazy, is an established artifact in the annals of rock history. Yet the demos of those songs, which appear here in rougher and rawer form, are clearly superior. The two tracks that didn't make the album—"Backseat Boogie" and "Fireman's Friend"—deserved to be aired long before this 2007 rarities compilation. But that's the history of The Dictators for you. Thanks to the fine archivists at Norton Records, this album is everything it could be and more. "Sleepin' with the TV On" is fully realized and superior to the official version. The original tunes from Bloodbrothers are all here in brutal form. Two takes of Andy Shernoff's "16 Forever," the b-side "Loyola," a handful of radio spots, and a cover of The Ramones' "I Just Want to Have Something to Do" fill out this excellent alternate look at a five-star band.
this should appeal to trashy people
This one’s for anyone who’s ever even thought the Strokes were original. Granted the Strokes are a lot easier on the eyes, but as one of the purveyors of the pre-punk genre, the Dictators wrote the textbooks the Strokes stole their image from. Every Day Is Saturday is a collection of 22 previously unreleased crust ‘n roll tracks spanning 1973-2002. They’re brash and vulgar and should appeal to trashy people who like to listen to the Ramones while riding the washing machine with an unbalanced load.
You Don't Know The Dictators???
... Well get ready. This album is a great intro. to the greatest band to never make it big. They released two of the greatest albums of the seventies, the debut GO GIRL CRAZY and their third, BLOODBROTHERS. In between was the uneven, but at times awesome MANIFEST DESTINY. The 'tators were unfortunately stuck in an an unmarketable chasm between punk and metal. Indeed, they're cited in numerous histories of Punk and make the top ten list in most Heavy Metal retrospectives. So, whether you love the Ramones and Rancid or you grew up with Black Sabbath and Blue Oyster Cult, do not hesitate. Get this album now and be made aware of the greatest band you never heard, the cool, funny, powerful, mightyt, DICTATORS.
