Dicks Hate Police, Love David Yow
Jesus Lizard/Scratch Acid screamer headlines benefit
DAILY Music  September 30, 2013, by Kevin Curtin
"...David Yow, the notorious Jesus Lizard/Scratch Acid frontman who lived in Austin from 1975-1988, returns to town to front local punk legends the Dicks, whose singer Gary Floyd remains in physical and financial duress as he recovers from multiple knee surgeries and deals with being evicted from his rent-controlled San Francisco home...."

Dicks Should Be in Austin Music Hall of Fame
Postmarks  March 19, 2008
"...To the Austin Music Poll voters, I attended the Austin Music Awards show and had a wonderful time. If not for the glaring omission of the Dicks from the Austin Music Poll Hall of Fame [Music, March 14], the show would have been perfect. The Dicks were cited as primary influences by everyone from Henry Rollins to David Yow to Kurt Cobain and can still bring down houses in Texas and California to this day..."

Where Are the Dicks?
Postmarks  March 18, 2008
"...Dear Chronicle, The absence of the Dicks in your Hall of Fame [Music, March 14] is like the Stooges being omitted from The Fictional Ann Arbor Weekly's "Top 10 Bands to Come Out of Southern Michigan." Would it have helped if Gary Floyd, Buxf Parrot, and Pat Deason had run some kind of Karl Rovian campaign and reminded Grandma to vote? Out shilling for votes wouldn't be very Dick-like, and face it, we all know that's how these contests are won. (The Skunks in the Hall of Fame?! Gee, I wonder if they have any Chronicle connections.) How a band who penned the punk rock anthems "Dicks Hate the Police," "Wheelchair Epidemic," and "Dead in a Motel Room" – songs that went on to inspire the likes of the Flaming Lips, Scratch Acid, and even Nirvana, for chrissakes – a band that can still pack a club with throngs of people young enough to be their grandchildren and know every word to every song, a band whose anger, attitude, and message is more relevant today that it was 25 years ago yet still fails to be included in a Texas rock & roll Hall of Fame is a fucking mystery...."

A Scanner Darkly
As the title implies, there’s a certain opacity to A Scanner Darkly's cautionary drug tale, but at times Richard Linklater's film can be as naked as the lunch on the end of your fork.

Film Review  May 20, 2016, by Kimberley Jones
"...Movie gumshoes never are – not the tough, terse Philip Marlowe that Humphrey Bogart immortalized in the Forties, and not the loosier-goosier version Elliott Gould played nearly three decades later, nor the pot-addled riff on the genre Joaquin Phoenix put out in 2014’s Inherent Vice. But these professional dicks – pretty dick-ish off the clock, too – have a code nonetheless: Save the girl, even as she’s playing you for a fool; act like you’re only in it for the paycheck, while never letting on that the real prize is in bringing the crooks and the corrupt bastards down a peg..."

This Is the End
Be mindful when partying at James Franco's house: You could get stuck there for the apocalypse with Seth Rogen and Co.
starstarstar
Film Review  June 14, 2013, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...This Is the End is a comedy/disaster-film hybrid that’s written and directed by the team of Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen (who also wrote Superbad, Pineapple Express, and The Green Hornet), and it's based on a short film they made in 2007 called “Jay and Seth Versus the Apocalypse.” Mixed with the vulgar bro humor are images of giant sinkholes to hell, the redeemed transporting up to heaven in blue sheaths of light, and giant, satanic beasts sporting huge, swinging dicks. The film is frequently hilarious, but overindulgent and too long by at least 15 minutes..."

Never Say Goodbye
Past and present mash up at the 2008-09 Austin Music Awards
Music Story  March 13, 2009, by Austin Powell
"...Erickson's demonic visions also seeped into the confrontational theatrics of the Dicks, in particular iconoclastic frontman Gary Floyd, who covered "Red Temple Prayer (Two Headed Dog)" with Sister Double Happiness for levitating 1990 tribute Where the Pyramid Meets the Eye. The shaft of Texas punk, dating back to the first Punk Prom at Raul's (see "Saturday Night at the Bookstore," May 12, 2000), Floyd represented "the queerest of the queer," as AMAs Director Margaret Moser surmised in her review of the essential anthology collection Dicks 1980-1986..."

Dancing About Architecture
Tosca are no Slackers, Pong bounces back, the Dicks still hate the police, and Ken Lieck finds a new journalist pal in this week's "Dancing."
Music Column  July 6, 2001, by Ken Lieck
"...From out in Kali-fornia, where I hear they make movies as well, the news comes from former Dicks leader Gary Floyd that a "Texas Terri" Laird recording of the Dicks song "Lifetime Problems" is set to appear in the upcoming gangster flick This Thing of Ours, starring James Caan and The Sopranos' Vincent Pastore. The original Dicks version of the tune was the B-side of "Dicks Hate Police," and Laird says the song is one of three demo tunes produced by her pal Jack Douglas (you may remember his work with Aerosmith and John Lennon on Double Fantasy, among his many credits)..."

Punk Rock(ers): Not Burning Out, Not Fading Away
Music Story  May 23, 1997
"...It's a rather drunken acquaintance of mine, now living 90 minutes away in some town with a name that sounds like a horror movie title. He's about 26 sheets to the wind, and as his roommate raises holy Hell about the phone bill getting run up, he wants to vent about the death of Glen Taylor, the ex-Dicks guitar player who'd passed away the day before, a victim of kidney and liver shutdown caused by years of hard drinking..."

"...What does a 40-year Austin punk vet do when tired of dragging around a refrigerator-sized amp and battering his eardrums? If you're Buxf Parrott, bassist for Seventies/Eighties pogo heroes the Dicks, you buy an upright bass, which you alternately pluck or caress with a bow. Singer/acoustic guitarist Todd Kassens carries a sackful of songs bearing Lee Hazlewood's influence, while drummer Alan Williams packs something called a "stoopstick."..."

Music Column  September 6, 2013, by Kevin Curtin
"...As incomparable as the sleazy brilliance of a Christeene performance seems to the family-friendly flamboyance of Pride Fest, or the deep singer-songwriter angle of OUTlander, it all exists in the same spirit: Be proud of who you are. David Yow Fronts the Dicks..."

SST Records' Greg Ginn jams econo in Taylor, Texas
Music Story  August 21, 2009, by Austin Powell
"...Tucked between the City Hall annex and post office, the new headquarters for SST Records appears almost as a mirage, with a weathered facade and plywood boards covering its storefront windows. The most influential label of the Eighties, SST remains a beacon of resilient independence, responsible for seminal works by Hüsker Dü, Sonic Youth, and the Dicks...."
