Private Dicks came out with a very distinctive sound on She Said Go wich is defenitly their own. Too bad the b-side is so incredible bad. Bad arty fartsy stuff. Arty stuff done the boring way. And since I don’t want to contribute to people developing bad taste or faling to sleep I won’t post it.
“Private Dicks disintegrated within six months of being managed by Mark Dean, the man who discovered George Michael. Dean himself said later: ”The Dicks should have been bigger worldwide than Wham ever were”.”

I myself am none too keen on the song. We did have another song for the B-side – ‘Bunnies’ – all about Jeremy Thorpe and his trial which was ongoing at the time. When he was found not guilty we had to come up with something quick. We actually used the words froma publicity promo we had put out and the ‘play’ was on our name and Bogart/Bacall (‘you know how to whistle don’t you?). Arty? God, if you knew us you’d know that was never the case. Boring? Yeah, I’ll give you that. However, fair to say that it really went do well live (and, in fact, is bass player Shugs’ favourite Dicks track – no accounting for taste). Be interested to know what you think of the tracks on our album. This is, in fact, being re-released on vinyl in Italy in time for our appearance in Rome Spring 2007.

Hi Gavin! Nice to hear from you and thanks for some tasty info. I myself haven’t heard the LP but would love to hear it. Have to check out the re-issue when it’s released. Is it Rave Up that’s going to release it?
I’ll send you a copy if you like.
Yeah, it’s Pier from Rave-Up. What a bloke.
Hoping to go to Berlin as well to do some gigs with Kidnap.
are you the flakes from the land of the hives or Melvin A Frubacher’s lot?
If you want to send me a copy that would be higly appreciated. I’ll contact you via email.
Yepp we’re from the land of The Hives. We’re actually about to get signed to the same label and at the same time as The Hives back in 1996. Oh well…
Will do. Just email me an address and i’ll pop it in the post. Be interested in your opinion.
The Hives – love their look, their performance, and their singles. The first album however . . . great opening and closing track but . . . is it me? Still love to see their videos tho’.
Me and my mates always thought it was one of the best “power Pop” singles ever released. Am interested to hear there is an album.
Many thanks. If you want to email your thoughts you can get me on email@example.com
