[POWER-POP-PUNK] Opening their Satyricon set 17 years ago with the pointed jeer, “In case you haven’t noticed, we’re really fucking old,” the Dickies’ sheer endurance beggars reason. Novelty covers and penis puppets are rarely pillars of longevity, after all. But with so many of their class of ’77 cohorts consigned to cautionary tales or miscast as elder statesmen, the venerable Los Angeles troupe has aged better than anyone could’ve dreamed. They always had a musicianship above and beyond their peers—snottily sped-up classic rock demands such—and, embracing caricature from the outset, had no relevance or cachet to lose. Maybe they never quite fit in with the teenage-rebellion crowd, but middle-aged tastes and infantile humor are evidently forever.
