DAGGER DICKS: “Sharp for You” b/w “Razor Sharp Love”: 7″

Dagger Dicks is an awesome U.K. garage punk band that delivers two very catchy tracks on this 7”. Rather than adhering to the studio trickery or production silliness that permeates the vast majority of today’s garage records, Dagger Dicks present a full, clear sound. Musically similar to the Jabbers, with a slight influence from later bands like the Spider Babies, both songs maintain a fun ‘77 vibe. Not that there’s anything wrong with dopey, but this record is far from it, despite the name and goofy cover art. Anyone with a sense of humor will want to prance around with a knife hanging from his or her fly after listing to this one. No lie.
