¿ ¿ ¿ ¿ ¿ ¿ Johnny & the Dicks ? ? ? ? ? ?


John Morton formed Johnny and the Dicks in 1978 because he wanted to do "art" live. (way-cool huh?) The dicks would appear on stage with instruments but never play them.
It was, for lack of a better term, "punk art."
They played at a "punk" festival in DC and galleries in Cle and Buffalo. and the album below was released "sans musica."

please note; it is one of the "artists rules" to change from 1st to 3rd person.



i proudly resent . . .
i mean present,
the johnny and the dicks album.
a limited edition silk-screened album (each one with its own dollop of polyester resin and fibreglas) and containing no LP whatsoever. none, nil, nunca (and you might want to take that under advisement before you listen to the music files below ! ! ! ! )
don't try this at home Be sure to hear the
"J & the D's" hit
"I am fucked up" from their one and only album.
(real audio and MP3)
(It's to the right)

Members of the band included my x wife,
the artist Michele Zalopany, two future members of
"the Bush Tetras,"
Mike Weldon,
Andrew Klimek and the indomitable
Karen K. Karen Karen
