The Dictators Live from Rochester, New York, 7th June 1977

The Dictators spat the lyrical disrespect and echoed the smart lipstick wit that David Johansen and the NY Dolls had employed on their home turf.

On the surface, here was a similar bunch of sloppy goofballs intent on nothing much apart from avoiding the mundane drivel of the daily grind and poking fun. From 1973 onwards, the band were a swaggering bunch of misfits who'd absorbed the American dream and all the trash that goes with it, throwing it all back up in your face.

They were the Dolls, the MC5 and The Stooges, they were anything you wanted them to be, but most importantly, they were a punk band's punk band, and they were The Dictators!

Interference dishonourably presents the loud, lewd and unabashed sound of New York punk rockers The Dictators, live from Rochester NY on 7th June 1977. Recorded in WCMF-FM studios and broadcast live, this is a raw knockout performance from the early NY punk scene.

Presented with a professionally re-mastered original FM broadcast, background liners and rare archival photos.

The connective tissue between the eras of The MC5, Stooges, NY Dolls, and the punk explosion of the mid to late 1970's - Steven Van Zandt.
