Under The Covers: Other Acts Covering Beatles Songs: ‘There’s A Place’- The Dickies. The Dickies – a punk band from the San Fernando Valley in California is one of the longest tenured punk bands in existence- they have been going at it for over 40 years now- they began back in 1977. Johnny Ramone once called them one of the Top 10 Punk Bands of all time. The band’s hey-day were the 1980’s but they are still around- they have been called ‘ the clown princes of punk.’ Here is their cover of “There’s A Place’ from The Beatles Please Please Me album.

  1. I had never heard of The Dickies. In part it’s probably I’ve never gotten much into punk. With all of that being said, it sounds pretty good! And since you mentioned the Ramones, it does remind me a bit of some of their covers of ‘60s tunes.

    BTW, when I pulled up The Dickies’ album that includes “There’s a Place,” I spotted a tune called “Easy Livin’”, and surely enough, it was a cover of the Uriah Heep song – pretty good as well, though of course musically closer to their style than The Beatles tune!

  2. They had a string of hits in the UK late 70’s/early 80’s and always seemed to be on Top of the Pops. My mate bought the ‘Banana Spilts Theme’ single in banana yellow vinyl, I was so jealous he had that record!

  3. The Dickies do the best covers! Did you ever hear “Eve of Destruction” or “Nights in White Satin”? Great stuff! I saw them live too! Loved them since I was a teenager.

    • They are a band I have ‘heard’ about but don’t think I had previously heard. Will have to look up and listen to those covers you mentioned.
