March 2015 marks the 40th anniversary of “The Dictators Go Girl Crazy.” Ignored and/or ridiculed at the time of its release, it’s since grown to be rightfully seen as a classic smart-azz manifesto.
It’s impossible to overstate the influence the lp had on me, and probably on you, our loyal audience, as well. This blog would not exist if not for GGC.
Reams of praise have been written about the album over the years, all if it deserved. Hell, we devoted a full week to its 35th anny back in 2010 (read it all here). Rather than try to come up with more in the same vein, we here at the DFFD Blog, in the style you’ve grown to know and tolerate, have come up with a new perspective on that mysterious, embryonic era of the band. Starting very soon, we’ll be running a multi-part interview with — wait for it — Stu Boy King. Believe it, Baby!

One response to “40 Years of Going Girl Crazy!!”
40 years! Since HDM, Andy, Ross, Scott & I were all born within a few months of each other, despite our geographic differences, The Dictators have always seemed to be speaking directly to me.
My love of this album, this band, has brought me many adventures (and misadventures), stories galore, and best of all, many friends
These soundtrack of my life? “The Dictators Go Girl Crazy”, natch!
