Supreme Dicks entire catalog is now available from Jagjaguwar! There’s the 4 CD boxset, Breathing and Not Breathing, which includes both of the band’s studio albums, The Unexamined Life and The Emotional Plague; Workingman’s Dick, a collection of early archival recordings; and the EP This Is Not A Dick, which has additional rare and unreleased tracks; as well as 2xLP editions of The Unexamined Life and The Emotional Plague. All for order right here.
The Stranger calls Breathing and Not Breathing “a glorious four-CD box set spanning one of Massachusetts’s gloomiest-ever bodies of work. Listen to ‘Jack-O-Lantern’ and try to deny it doesn’t rival Pavement in the birth of that sound.” Matt Fiander at Prefix explains what makes the Dicks so special: “They sound honest. In all this weirdness, there’s not a shred of pretension to it…If being underground is about not being exposed (as De La Soul put it so well) then Supreme Dicks were as underground as they could be. They didn’t rise to the surface to greet us, they summoned us to dig to them. And, in the end, we thanked them for the dirt under our nails…My recommendation: Get it all.“
