ARCHIVE 2014 - THE DICKIES – confirmed for Thursday

Date: 14/07/2014 - 00:00

’77 Punk Stalwarts THE DICKIES have been booked and will be playing Thursday 7th August.

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).

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. What a great way to start the weekend!
