Dicky's Voice on PP&GJ

Postby The Tall Kid » Tue Dec 08, 2009 9:09 pm

So, if you have been to a few BossToneS shows, you have probably heard Dicky's famous line:

"If you know the words- sing along! If you can't sing- do what I do!"

Well Dicky- you SING on the new record! ...and it sounds great!

So I guess we all have to learn to sing now, so we can do what you do!


This is not meant as a dig- I love the growling, the yelling, the screaming... but I love the vocal style on PP&GJ too!

Yeah, I really think that his voice sounds great on this record.

Definitely an improvement over Jacknife.

It really reminds me of Pay Attention era Dicky.

Singing = a lot easier compared to that gutteral growl he normally has.

PP&GJ is Dicky saying "fuck singing like this" after totally losing it during Rhodesdown.

Yeah, were just not going to get the growl on new material, and I can't blame them at all. Dicky can sing, the music is tight, and the production great. I am happy, but then again, this is exactly what I expected. Songwriting just gets stronger....

Dicky can still do his old voice. But even so, everything just sounds somewhat different from record to record. He seems to go for a lot of lower notes on this one, maybe that's just me.

His voice is like a fine wine. . . it just gets better with age.

he's def saving the growl for the stage/the growl will come out full force after night 1 for sure. listen to desmond dekker on the recording then listen to it live from a throwdown on youtube or whatever. he sounds so awesomely dirty and gritty live. either way he kicks ass at what he does!

I think he gets the growl going when "I Wrote It" picks up after the beginning

This was exactly what I thought when I heard PP&Gj for the first time !
I love the way he sings on it ! (and I'll always love how he was singing before... till the end !)
Nothing could feel more optimistic than what we are headin' toward
