NOW FOR THE VH1 BEHIND THE MUSIC SHIT:
Dick Delicious was formed in Mesopotamia in the fall of 1992. Formed by leisure specialist / freelance gynecologist Richard B. Delicious and Tibetan monk / chili technician, the pair had been searching for a drummer for twenty years when they found their first drummer, Harry Scrotum, hiding in the back of the van. Shortly after, they relocated to Atlanta and the trio began playing locally and recorded the first demo "Guns, Drugs, Skimasks, and Pornography". The tape (recorded on a cheesy 6-track in a basement) charted on collage radio and sold around 500 copies in a few months. The bands penchant for a variety of styles of music, scantily clad female dancers, outrageous on stage antics, and politically incorrect lyrics quickly made them one of Atlanta's top draws.
In 1994 DDTT hooked up with The Babes in Toyland's Spanish Fly label to put out the "I Wish I was a Dog" 7-inch. With the release of the single, the band broadened it's horizons and began to play regionally, and quickly gained followings in other cities by selling crack cocaine to the audience.
By 1995, the band attracted the attention of the, Atlanta based, Reality Records. The band recorded and mixed their debut CD in four hectic days with help from producer Posh Spice. Dick Delicious went on the road road sporadically in support of the CD (when their van runs). Shorter after the release of the CD the band parted ways with Reality, because they were a shitty half-assed operation and began pressing and promoting themselves. The effort paid off, the bands two CDs soared up SoundScan, and the CDs finally went aluminum.
By 1997 the band fell on rough times. DDTT briefly added a second guitar player, B.L. Zebub, the group had gone through about seven drummers (in true Spinal Tap fashion), the band had all of it's gear stolen from their practice room, and Dick was arrested for possession of LSD while on tour. Things went on indefinant hiatus...
Delicious re-formed in early 1998 with the best lineup to date, with drummer Chaz Chizler. They recorded a new CD entitled "We Sold Our Souls for Wet Sloppy Holes", which was released in the summer of 1999 after Dick served a 7.5 month sentence in prison for possession of drugs. Around that time the band received an unexpected break - heavy Napster trading finally had made them a household name (just ask anyone) and they began to to appear on TRL disguised as Carson Daily and Eminem. The band was killed in a rush of 15 year old snizz when the audience found out.
In October 2000, Dick Delicious was resurrected by Satan from their graves and came back with "than an even better than the last line up...lineup", when Dick and Hugh found Islam and vowed to never have another no-rythm having white cracker devil drummer again. Thus, they recruited drummer Busta Hymen - at a race riot in South Africa.
In 2001 after numerous "near misses" with negotiations with record labels and crappy deals with the ones that did sign them, the band decided to form their own label WFPTSO (We Finally Put This Shit Out Ourselves Records) and released the band's 3rd CD, plus reissues of the first two CDs on that label. The band's future plans include getting colon cancer, amputating our arms with plastic sporks, and taking Jessica Simpson to a donkey show.
In 2002 Hugh discovered he was half Jewish, when his German half attempted to throw him in an open oven. July 2002 marked 10 Years of the band being together.
Late 2002 Dick Delicious got *yet* another new drummer after Les Winen was found dead in the parking lot of a gay bathhouse in Midtown, apparently having overdosed on what was at least 70 times more seamen than what precipitated the famous 1977 Rod Stewart urban legend.
Also in late 2002 Diarrhea became a staple on the Howard Stern Show and recieved unprecendented listener response.
January 2003 on The Howard Stern radio show - in New York, Dick Delicious and the Tasty Testicles became the first ever recipients of the Annual Howard Stern Award for excellence in the field of music.
