Billy Miller and Miriam Linna continue to put out extraordinary reissue packages by the crucially important knucklehead punks and raucous R&B and rockabilly rebels who keep music exciting outside of the mainstream.
Every Day Is Saturday explores the dirty demo underside of quintessential New York ignorid rockers the Dictators and comes up with the raging goods. The Dictators’ studio albums never captured the thrashy, trashy, moral-corrupting power of the leathered-up longhair louts onstage. But these previously unissued blasts retrace their swaggering evolution while offering a rawer alternate story of how punk met metal for pure unhinged teenage kicks. As with every Norton reissue, the thoroughly researched and entertainingly written liner notes are good enough to be sold separately.
