The Dickies: The Incredible Shrinking Dickies
Sandy Robertson, Sounds, 10 February 1979
IN ESSENCE, The Dickies make silly music for silly people. Whereas other punk groups have slavishly copied the three-chord assault of The Ramones with deadpan stupidity, these guys have taken it upon themselves to amplify the hitherto unplagiarised comic aspects of da brudders. Most of the time this works, mainly due to the fact that The Dickies are good engineers at the controls (John Hewlett, Earle Mankey).
