Anti-racists, anti-war, communists, queer to the (hard) core… 80s Texas Punks THE DICKS are the perfect anti-heroes to help make these crazy times a little less dark ! 2023 is indeed a good year for an international Dicks tribute to see the light of day – just 40 years after the release of their seminal “Kill from the Heart” album on SST, later reissued on ALTERNATIVE TENTACLES.
Seven bands from around the world covering as many tracks spanning the band’s discography, all crammed on the two sides of a 7” record. The protagonists : BRAT FARRAR (Australia), ILLEGAL LEATHER (UK), LADY BANANA (Sweden), BART AND THE BRATS (France), MITCH KRAMER (USA), THE DELINQUENTS (Italy) and GOODBYE JOHNNYS (Switzerland).
Co-released by TAKE THE CITY (Spain) and FRANTIC CITY (France), and DIE HIPSTER! ( USA) with flamboyant artwork by Jonny Watkins.
