Jim Dickinson was raised by wolves and glows in the dark
Jim Dickinson - Fishing with Charlie and Other Selected Readings (listen) This spoken word record is a curiosity among curiosities from this sadly departed outsize personality in music that produced everything, as did God, in his image. My favorite thing ever might be the byline he provided for a small sideline article in Paste Magazine: Jim Dickinson was raised by wolves and glows in the dark. That is the gold standard of bylines.
Flamin' Groovies - Teenage Head (listen) Not only does this feral bit of sonic hormone transfer rank high among his production credits, but among sonic hormone transferrals as well.
