The Dictators - Live At Kafe Antzokia, Bilbao, Spain (2001)

It's been a whole month since my previous post, and you probably think I'm crazy busy - but I've just been crazy lazy lately... sorry!
Here's a great show by The Dictators from their Spanish tour in 2001, at the Kafe Antzokia in Bilbao.
"The Dictators are a rock and roll band formed in New York City in 1973. Critic John Dougan said that they were "one of the finest and most influential proto-punk bands to walk the earth." The Dictators' debut album, The Dictators Go Girl Crazy! (1975) was perhaps the first album released by a New York punk group. The Dictators are represented in the "Punk Wing" of the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, in Cleveland, Ohio. Steven Van Zandt called them "The connective tissue between the eras of The MC5, Stooges, NY Dolls, and the punk explosion of the mid to late 1970's.

Tracklist: 1. Intro/The Party Starts Now, 2. Master Race Rock, 3. Avenue A, 4. Baby, Let's Twist, 5. Pussy and Money, 6. Faster and Louder, 7. The Minnesota Strip, 8. The Next Big Thing, 9.
