Meet Dicktations – Cîroc and Roll

Dicktations3

Man Dicktations make a lot of noise! But listen closely; they also have quite an ear for melody. This is super-fuzzed out garage punk a la Black Lips, with the hooky stylings of Pavement. Think Weezer played full blast on blown out speakers.

Dicktations have their first full length record H*CKHOUND, coming out on tape via King Pizza Records on December 13th, but you can check them out below with their brand new video.

Our craziest gig ever was….

If you could pick any time to travel back to for music, where would you go and what year would it be….

The sounds of cicadas and the gurgling rivers of ennui.
