well i clean forgot about the Dickies ... and then was reminded by Graham's post here
and why would I remember, you might ask... weren't the Dickies the epitome of forgettable, dispensable?
Well, they had some UK hits
indeed this one got to #7 in the charts!
but "Nights in White Satin" just dented the Top 40
This, their first single, went Top 50. Strangely pointless given that "Paranoid" is already a punk song.
you mind be forgiven for wondering if did the Dickies ever did any original songs? well yes, but most of the singles seemed to be cover versions
non-single covers include Monkees' "She" , the Isley Brothers' ""Nobody But Me", the Left Banke's "Pretty Ballerina", and "Hair"
