With the immense popularity of its first
release “New Age Girl,” one might think
that Dead Eye Dick is a “one-hit-wonder”
But its live performances and its album
tell “A Different Story.” The band’s debut
album has been steadily gaining popularity
and higher spots on the charts.
Guitarist and vocalist Caleb Guillotte
said, “The album was recorded two years
ago, and we were only three weeks old. I’m
not saying the album is bad, but we sound a
lot better live.
“We’re a real exciting band. We’re not
just some guys who look at their shoes and
sing at you,” he said.
Dead Eye Dick will be sharing some of
its excitement tonight at the Royal Grove.
This will be its first appearance in Nebraska,
and Guillotte said the band members looked
forward to playing here.
“The song (“New Age Girl”) was popu

well as radio play, especially in the small

has been together since October 1992. ✓
“When we first started playing, we dc
cided to put this record together to try and
make a name for ourselves in the South
east,” Guillotte said.
Dead Eye Dick then sent its promos to
radio stations throughout the region, he
“After like the third spin, ‘New Age Girl’
became the most requested song in Atlanta.”
The band steadily gained popularity
since then and eventually signed with the
record label Ichiban.
“We’ve pretty much been on the road
since we signed with Ichiban in the end of
May,” he said.
The band’s eccentric moniker had a fairly
straightforward origin.
“Dead Eye Dick is the title of a Kurt
Vbnnegut book, the first one that I read,”
Guillotte said. “I presented it to the guys,
and they found it mnemonically accept

the band’s first single, “New Age Girl,” a
highly contagious strain of the alternative
pop virus.
Guillotte writes all the songs for the
band. He said the vegetarian Mary Moon
from the song “New Age Girl” wasn’t based
on anyone specific.
“Ninety-nine percent of the time I write
the music before I write the lyrics. I just
made the name rhyme. 1
“New Age Girl” is going to be the lead
track for the soundtrack of Jim Caney’s new
movie, “Dumb and Dumber.”
The film will be in theaters on Dec. 16,
and the soundtrack, which also features the
Crash Test Dummies, Green Jelly and the
Buttholc Surfers, will be in stores on Nov.
Dead Eye Dick just finished filming a
new video for “New Age Girl,” incorporat
ing scenes from the movie in it.
The band also recently returned from a
European tour.
Guillotte said they had problems getting
used to the quietness of the European crowds
while the band was playing.
“There were these quiet German crowds
who would stand there until the song was
over and make sure that you didn’t trick

Dead Eye Dick’s plans for the future are
relatively simple.
“We’ll be Hying to sell this record, and
we go to Europe again at the beginning of
January,” he said.
“Other than that, we’re going to play and
Elay and play and hope that we eventually
ave time to record a new album,” Guillotte
said. - .
