The Dickies

The Dickies

The Dickies return for what will probably be their last visit. Saw them last year and they were as great as ever so this year I'll be going to the Edinburgh and Newcastle shows.

Spoke to Stan last year and he said they'd written some new material and there's probably going to be another album. Hope so.

See you down the front!

There's an interesting article about Crass on the Guardian website written by John Robb with a lively debate beneath, including some comments by one clueless berk who thinks that Dial House is a posh middle calls house. No heating, no hot water, subsidence etc., hardly posh.
