Biography

There are at least 2 bands with the name Dillinger

1. Dillinger (born Lester Bullocks on January 25, 1953) is a prominent reggae artist. Dillinger was part of the second wave of DJ Toasters who sprung up around Jamaica during the mid 1970s. Inspired by Big Youth, U Roy, and Dennis Alcapone, Dillinger was known for his quick wit, humorous lyrics and vulgar content (“crab in my pants”).

As a youth growing up in Kingston, Jamaica, Dillinger would hang around Dennis Alcapone’s El Paso Setup. This exposure would eventually lead to a full time gig at Jackie’s sound system. Just as Alcapone took his performing name from a famous American gangster, Dillinger took his own name from John Dillinger.

The song “Cocaine In My Brain” is considered an all-time reggae classic and was even featured on the K-Jah reggae station of GTA: San Andreas.

2. A progressive Rock band formed in Ontario, Canada. They released two albums in total. the first was the self titled which was released in 1974 and then Don’t Lie to the Band which was released in 1975.
Their music was progressive with bluesy riffs in a hard rock vein. The music was fairly complex and keyboards , vocals, saxophone , flute, accordion, drums, guitars and bass was used.
