May the Fourth Be With You!


This thing of ours celebrates its fourth birthday today. Lots be happening in Dics-world in the last 12 months — the Dictators NYC continued to slay audiences with their awesome roar, the Del Lords re-emerged with their 1st album in 22 years, and Andy Shernoff put the finishing touches on his second solo EP. You read about all of it here first, and we’re proud to be your go-to source for news about all things Dictators.

As if he wasn’t scary enough without the make-up!! This is overkill on his part — he could scare people in a Santa suit.

Happy Birthday to Top Ten!

Scott Kempner celebrates a birthday today. Here’s some extremely rare vid of him during his brief reign in 1980 as the guitar god in the Helen Wheels band. Thanks to the videographers at the Local East Village blog for hanging on to this stuff for 30 plus years!
