If there’s one band sure to put a smile on your face whilst playing at 100MPH then The Dickies are that band. Hailing from the good ol’ USA they enjoyed a sustained period of National Chart success in the late 70’s with re-workings of classics like "Silent Night”, "Paranoid” , "Nights In White Satin” and of course, "Banana Splits” (all on coloured vinyl folks!).

They could also pen a mean tune themselves as the likes of "Fan Mail”, "Where Did His Eye Go” (about Sammy Davis!) and "Bowling With Bedrock Barney” aptly show. They also brought a good sense of humour to their live shows with vocalist Leonard Graves Phillips often appearing in fancy dress – and hey pop pickers, did you know that Toy Dolls front man Olga toured with the band playing bass in the early 2000’s!

When first released by A&M Records in early 1979 this album spent over 4 months in the UK National Charts, eventually peaking at No.18.Chart hits like “Paranoid” (No.45) and “Banana Splits” (No.7) are highlights of this album which also includes the singles “Give It Back” and “Eve Of Destruction”. We’ve added all the relevant B-sides plus the “Silent Night” hit (No.47) to give 19 insights into the weird and wonderful world of The Dickies.

Те кто слушал Green Day заметят влияние на них The Dickies.
