Overview

Go Girl Crazy!

Released in 1975 -- a full year before anyone began using the word "punk" to describe the back-to-basics rock of the New York scene's underbelly -- this stoopidly brilliant Gotham combo's debut distilled the spirit of things to come with panache -- and plenty of puke jokes. Laden with memorable riffs that split the difference between surf-rock, metal, and what would come to be known as thrash, Go Girl Crazy hits on all cylinders as it revs through sing-alongs like "(I Live for) Cars and Girls" and the mook-rock anthem "Teengenerate." The real might, however, emanates from the band's self-proclaimed "secret weapon," Handsome Dick Manitoba, whose street-smart delivery dovetails perfectly with the in-your-face satire of songs like "The Next Big Thing" (a musical autobiography of sorts, in which the Dictators note that "We knocked 'em dead in Dallas/didn't know we were Jews"). There's nary a dull moment on the tightly packed disc, and -- like, say, an episode of The Simpsons -- each listen reveals another belly laugh you hadn't noticed before.
