before "The Incredible Shrinking Dickies?" Answer: FUCK I DONT KNOW, I think I bought them at the same time, geez the stuff people worry about......I am usre "Incredible" came out first, and I am ALSO certain, WHO GIVES A FUCK? It's all HERE, and that is what matters........SO, nit-picker, the first album we shall lead off with this evening is 1979's "The Incredible Shrinking Dickies", a classic among classics......another great 5-star classic, includes the classic version of "Paranoid", also, "You Drive Me Ape (You Big Gorilla)", "Eve of Destruction", "Poodle Party", "Mental Ward" and plenty more short, fast blasts of power-punk greatness.......a MUST HAVE!
Next up we have a true rarity, the 7" "Dawn of the Outtakes", which features three tracks that I think are available only here (See track list).....yet another 7" from 1983 is the "Out of Sight" b/w "Communication Breakdown" disc.......another one that, if you are a TRUE Dickies fan, you NEED.....next up we have (finally) another full length, "Stukas Over Disneyland", which has some repeat material (ie "Communication Breakdown"), but also the fab "Pretty Please Me" and several live tracks........also essential.
I think I'm going to leave it at here for tonight, I'll put up some more tomorrrow.....this is one of the
great "forgotten" bands of the 1980's, and each morsel here needs to be SAVORED. There is lots more to come, but I wanna go hit the sack for tonight.......see ya tomorrow with a bunch MORE Dickies, some rare as shit, so stick around!
