Dickies

Group of punk rockers who bumped into each other each other in San Fernando Valley, California and who intended

a. to become the main act of the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood and
b. to be interviewed by local punk newspaper Slash.

At first they would be called The Imbeciles, but drummer Karlos Kabellero refused to play under that name, so it became The Dickies.

What inspired band name Dickies - Dickies workwear logoA dickie is a kind of bib that can be worn under a V-neck sweater, making it look like a full rollneck. The band however will probably have been named after workwear brand Dickies. Construction workers have a preference for the clothes of this brand, as they can conveniently rest their tools in them.

Today Dickies also manufactures clothing not aimed at construction workers. In Europe especially skaters love it.

Active: 1977-present, USA
