Here's some early Deke Dickerson. As good as he is, as a guitar player, writer, music historian and all around fiend, it's interesting to see how fast he progressed. His playing in the student film that he did with Steve Mace, a high school class project, was only about a year or two before the two formed the Untamed Youth. Some of you in San Diego will recognize the drummer in the "Hey Elly May" video as Ron Silva of the Crawdaddys, the Nashville Ramblers and about eighty other bands. "Pabst Blue Ribbon" was not intended as a tie-in to last nights post, but it is a beer song. And a hot ass surf instrumental.
