Singles‘ Fake Band “Citizen Dick” Will Finally Release a Record


Yes, I said record, and semantics matter here – on April 18th, “Record Store Day 2015,” the band – made up of Matt Dillon and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament – will release a 7″ vinyl version of their signature single, “Touch Me I’m Dick,” which is of course Mudhoney’s “Touch Me I’m Sick” with one word change.

Waiting 23 years to produce an in-joke that probably isn’t that exciting to fans any more is an interesting choice, but I guess we’re still at the point where anything Pearl Jam-related sells. As for me, on the same day I’ll be looking to grab Legacy recordings’ other big in-joke release: a double-vinyl edition of The Wrestling Album and Piledriver: The Wrestling Album II, the latter of which has never been available on CD.

That’s possibly because it features Vince McMahon’s one and only attempt at singing, “Stand Back,” which makes William Shatner look like Pavarotti by comparison.
