The Dicks Biography (Wikipedia)
Dicks were an American punk rock band from Austin, Texas, formed in 1980 and initially disbanded in 1986. Their music is considered influential in introducing the sound of hardcore punk, as well as incorporating blues rock influences into their sound. After the first breakup, singer Gary Floyd formed the band Sister Double Happiness, with drummer Lynn Perko, then later fronted a project called Black Kali Ma. In 2004, The Dicks reunited and were active until 2016.
The Dicks went through two incarnations in the 1980s, changing its lineup when Floyd moved from Austin to San Francisco in 1983. As a political band with Marxist lyrics during the Reagan era, they did not shy from controversy. Floyd was one of a handful of openly gay musicians in the 1980s punk scene.
