The Dickies - Great Dictations: The Definitive Dickies Collection (1989)

So this is my friend Willis Stork's reward for being the first to get the trivia question right last week about the Slint album cover photo (Will Oldham took it). Actually he answered second but "Ben" never claimed his prize. This is why you people either need to make your Blogger profile public or include your e-mail. K THX.

Anyway, props to Willis. Here's his request, The Dickies and their singles collection from 1989.

The Dickies were one of the earliest punk bands from L.A., forming in 1977. Sprinkled among their own songs were an array of cover songs, some of which are hilariously irreverent and totally WTF-inducing; Barry McGuire's Eve Of Destruction, Simon & Garfunkel's Sounds Of Silence, Black Sabbath's Paranoid, Moody Blues' Nights In White Satin and their best, The Banana Splits' TV-show theme song.

Stay tuned for another trivia contest, winner gets to choose an album they would like to see uploaded. For now, download The Dickies!
