Young, Loud and Snotty
New York and London weren't the only places with punk scenes in 1977 - Cleveland had one too, and Dead Boys were the new music's leading exponent there. Nonetheless, the quintet felt the pull of Manhattan and cut almost all of their Sire Records debut, YOUNG, LOUD AND SNOTTY, in the city's Electric Lady Studios with producer Genya Ravan (a live cover of “Hey Little Girl” was recorded at CBGB). From the opening classic “Sonic Reducer” to the closing complaint “Ain't Nothin' To Do,” the collection has attitude to burn and pulverizing riffs that would be the envy of The Stooges or Ramones. Frontman Stiv Bators was born on this day in 1949, and we'll mark the occasion with one of the defining U.S. punk albums, the aptly named YOUNG, LOUD AND SNOTTY.
