There is one track by the Dickies I remember hearing plenty of about 20 years ago and would like to get hold of, but have no idea of its name or if it was a single or album track.

It was possibly a live recording that made use of some kind of squeaky toy to brilliant effect.
Any idea what it is?

was it "Stukas Over Disneyland"? I think they did that, and it was popular, I had it on a complilation album called the Vinyl Solution, which also featured the Lurkers " Eat it Up". Sory but that's all i've got on the Dickies.

I remember seeing the Dickies play in Brighton about 8 years ago.
"Howdy doody in the woodshed" springs to mind.

I'm sure I still have my copy of 'Banana Split' on yellow vinyl tucked away somewhere. I remember I had 'Paranoid' on clear, but it was half inched years ago :evil:
