'Cocaine In My Brain' (aka 'Cokane In My Brain') is Dillinger’s most successful single from
1976. The now iconic song was an international club hit reaching No.1 in the Netherlands,
No.2 in Belgium and No.35 in Germany.
DILLINGER was born Lester Randal Bullock in Kingston, Jamaica in 1953 and, as an aspiring
young musician was heavily influenced by Dennis Alcapone, even performing as a DJ under
the name ‘Dennis Alcapone Jr’. His first break, and single – 'Dub Organizer' – came in 1974
under ther guidance of Lee 'Scratch' Perry who also instigated Bullock’s name change to
Dillinger, after the notorious American gangster John Dillinger.
After a few false starts Dillinger scored a succession of modest hits in 1975 with 'Freshly',
Brace a Boy', 'Killer Man Jaro' and 'CB 200', the title track from his most successful album
for Island Records
