The Cortinas - Fascist Dictator

The first record released on the classic 'Step Forward' label was 'The Cortinas' single 'Fascist Dictator'. Another brilliant punk song from 1977, both sides are excellent, but for me the b-side 'Television Families' is my favourite.

When rock bands were releasing massive long guitar and drum solos, The Cortinas covered bass, drums and two guitars, with an excellent 2 second long solo for each one.

This was their first single, and they released one further single, and an album (which I have if anyone really likes this).

Band: The Cortinas

Ripped from glorious scratched vinyl:
