The heart of this story is told by the Dicks best friends who've remained close for over thirty years. These friends all wandered to Austin, Texas looking for something. Back in those days, Austin was a different animal than the world-class music stratosphere it's known as today. You might run into Patti Smith or Devo after one of their shows when they wandered into Raul's Club down on Guadalupe where the Dicks were the house band.
It was a wild and incredible time and the Dicks' songs have stood the test for over 40 years. The music is as raw and spicy and weirdly catchy as it was back in 1980 when 'Dicks Hate the Police' became a top forty hit for the legions of other misfits and lovers of pure-ass hardcore.
