Austin, Texas, 1980: In the dark ages before SXSW, there was a bar called Raul’s that was the center of the Austin punk scene. Actually, it basically was the whole scene and The Dicks were born from it. The Dicks made a big splash with their first single, Hate the Police, and then recorded Kill From the Heart just before vocalist Gary Floyd moved to San Francisco. In those magical couple years of the Dicks’ infancy in Texas, they made a dynamic impact on many people with a stellar live show that mixed punk and politics. Alongside Floyd, the original lineup was guitarist Glen Taylor, bassist Buxf Parrot and drummer Pat Deason. They imploded in 1983. Alternative Tentacles is proud to present a very necessary reissue of the band’s beloved first LP. If you aren’t familiar with Kill From the Heart, then you need to be aware of this bona-fide classic of Reagan-era punk—a record that inspired many of the artists that inspired you. This very important document has been remastered with love by Jello Biafra. For an added bonus, the CD and digital download versions include The Dicks’ legendary debut 7-inch Hate the Police.
