The Dickies: Dickiemania: Threat or Menace?

Davin Seay, BAM, 18 April 1980

LOS ANGELES — That's right America; pretend it doesn't exist and maybe it will go away. When will you ever learn? Wake up before it's too late! You closed your eyes to the Red menace and now Breshnev and his buddies are sipping Pina Coladas at the Kabul Hilton. You turned the other cheek to the knee-jerk liberals and now you've got Snail Darters for next-door neighbors. You thought oil was a big joke and now your old lady is using the Seville as a Coleus planter. The Dickies' second album is out and you're sitting around like Ike is still putting on the 18th green.
