Dickies BIOGRAPHY

Dickies

Label(s): A&M Records
Recording Years: 1978-1979

"When I first saw them it was at the Whisky. This was about April of '78, and I was just amazed. For the first time, I'd seen a band in L.A. with intimations of the London scene. There were a lot of other bands playing around town then that had some links to it, but they seemed determined to keep one foot in each camp."--Derek Green, Record World July 14, 1979

Although an American band, The Dickies were signed to A&M Records Ltd. in England and broke there first thanks to teen and pre-teen interest in three concert tours and at retail with a series of singles that helped identify an audience for an album. A&M focused on packaging the records with colored vinyl and playing up the logo and cover art. The U.K. media did not like the band and radio was equally negative.
