Didjits – Headless 7″

didjits_headless.jpgOk, I’ll jump on the bandwagon regarding Touch & Go’s 25th anniversary. For me their best stuff have always been the early HC releases. I like some Scratch Acid. But Didjits was a big doze of fresh air 1990 when all these generic and stereotyped HC bands came from NY and just destroyed all the fun.


And oh boy was it nice to see a 7inch portraying a big Marijuana plant on the cover in an era of stupid Straight Edge kids.


This 7inch from Didjits is a true classic. Their own Headless have been spinned alot. And their take on the Dickies classic Give It Back is done with finess. A little too close to the original though. But in an era with crap music this was welcomed.


Head over to Last Days Of Man to read Joes visit to the T&G party. Something I Learned Today have also posted a couple of nice T&G tracks for you to chew on.

    The Didjits were a great band. Came out of nowhere when the scene was pratically dead and totally kicked ass!! Their 1st lp “Fizzjob” came out in 1986 on the Bam Bam label and was later reissued on Touch & Go. The Dickies cover you mentioned is great but try and here them covering “Monkey Suit” by the Plasmatics on their Que Sirhan Sirhan LP it is superb!! Their best album for me has to be HEY JUDESTER”.

    The Didjits are one of my all-time favorite bands. They were awesome at the Touch & Go block party, and there are a couple of videos from that show on YouTube. On Tuesday September 5, they played a practice show at a tiny bar in Chicago called the Mutiny. There couldn’t have been more than 30 people there, they sounded great, and they played a little bit longer than they did at T&G. My wife took these photos:

    Oh, and here’s the Didjits setlist from the Mutiny show:
    They did pretty much the same set on Saturday at the Touch & Go show, except they didn’t play “Top Fuel” or “Beast Le Brutale.”

    These guys and the Turks were my favorites of the 90’s. I’ve always loved the Dickies cover, one of my personal fave covers
