DICKIES: Incredible Shrinking Dickies: CD

Jeez, this is gonna be tough. I mean, what does one say about one of the greatest punk albums ever to come outta Los Angeles? What hasn’t been said about the Dickies over the last 23 years? Let’s try stating the obvious: This is their first, and their best, album. Apparently, it has been out of print for some time. A good two-thirds of their “classic” songs are on this album. Here also are B-sides to some of their English singles and such, including “Silent Night,” “Hideous,” and the “Banana Splits” theme. In short, mandatory listening.
