Dickies201707webWe Love The Big Blue Shed presents; THE DICKIES 40th ANNIVERSARY TOUR with support from Red Raucous and Church of Eon

Formed in 1977 by guitarist Stan Lee and bassist Billy Club, and made their debut performance at the Whiskey a Go Go later that September. The band became the first punk rock band to sign with major record label, A&M Records, and in 1979 the band released their first studio album entitled “The Incredible Shrinking Dickies,” followed very closely by “Dawn of The Dickies.”

The Dickies became known for their campy and humerous live performances, which fit with their influences like The Ramones, who they opened with several times; in fact, they would open for The Ramones for various gigs.

The Dickies released a third album in 1983 entitled “Stukas Over Disneyland,” which includes a cover of The Quick's "Pretty Please Me" and Led Zeppelin's "Communication Breakdown."

In 1988, the Dickies wrote and performed the theme music for the horror film Killer Klowns from Outer Space. The following year they released “Second Coming,” and in 1990 they wrote the theme song for the comedy film, “Spirit of 76” by Lucas Reiner. Unfortunately some members of the band struggled with drug problems in the 1980s, but were still able to perform live; in fact, they released their first live album in 1991. In 1995 they released “Idjit Savant” followed by “Dogs From the Hare that Bit Us.”
