Highly recommended for any Dickie devotees, and Cheap Trick completists take note. The original Cheap Trick demo version of this number is missing that slick production value (almost sounding like an American Sex Pistols at points) that Immortally “fuse”d their classic hits to radio station playlists for half a century. This track proves that The Dickies (known for their unique parody and twisting of classics) can still take any tune and make it their own, giving the original track a proper tribute all while Stan and Co. whip up that signature Dickies finesse. The criminally overlooked multi registered vocal dynamo that is Leonard Graves Phillips is joined by Monkey of the Adicts, their vocal duet is essentially a spot on replica and homage to the unique and revered Robin Zander and shows that men in their 60s can still drag a “phew”😅 remnants of their teenage angst onto a recording 40 years on, all while preserving Kim Fowleys charming visions for an illicit and quite racey Cheap Trick. (The song was initially shelved or banned) This track is a very tasty number and it will grow on you. The B-side “the Dreaded Pigasaurus” seems a typically Dickies fashioned comical approach to a heavy rock parody in which we find the boys paying homage to the Pokémon fad. Confused? While seemingly out of left field the subject matter is no more relevant than the band tackling their age old love for anime themes in song, and children’s themed cartoons and revelry. Gigantor, Pokémon, banana splits etc etc, I would say the A side is worthy of 4/5 stars for a group that hasn’t put anything out in more than a decade. Following that ageless tradition, the b-side of this single gives the A side so much star power that you’ll forget that it’s even on there. Although I do believe it has something to offer the more progressive fans of the band. Enjoy!
