Actually I don’t know that much about The Dicks. The lead track of this EP was on one of the Faster and Louder compilations, and Mudhoney covered it, too. But the rest of their music … well you can say I support it in principle. Maybe I was doing all these Austin bands and got carried away.

Lead singer Gary Floyd (whom the Butthole Surfers wrote a song about) was in another band called Sister Double Happiness, you might get the strange indie-Maoist vibe they had from their bandname. Like Black Sabbath, they wrote a song named after themselves, it’s one of their best.
