Dearest Dick Lovers
Thought you'd like to know my dear young Dick will be turning 21 on the
night of the 30th of March (yeah not this friday but next friday). Luckily
I dont have to put on a shindig myself for the young whippersnapper as
he's doing a gig at The Troubadour on that night with his lovely band The
Shotgun Country Club. What makes this night even more special is that our
favourite scallywags will be playing alongside two of Brisbane's most
controversial bands - Lost of Love and Ghost Audio.
Yep the same Lost of Love that was turned off by the local constabulary
when they played the Valley Mall and yep the same Ghost Audio that were
involved in that unmentionable scandal with Nicole Kidman last year. This
will be one shindig to remember so get your twisted ass to the Troubadour
on Friday the 30th of March.

I hear young Dick and his Shotgun Country Club are going to be playing on
the same bill as that delightful young deviless, Jackie Marshall this
Thursday at The Troubadour sometime after 9pm along with Blank Czech
Blues. Thought you might like to know!
Gladys

Press Release (relevant for Thursday 19th of October)
If you like to wash your country music down with a bucket of moonshine and
a bale of smoldering homegrown, haul the brain cells youve got left out to
the Troubadour this Thursday to see the king and queen of Brisbane alt
country decadence, the notorious Dick Desert and the irrepresible Jackie
Marshall. Both these contentious artists will be in full band mode with
Dick being backed by the freakabilly antics of The Shotgun Country Club
and Jackie being joined by her increasingly regular group of degenerates.
Blank Czech Blues polish off a hot line up of Brisbane country blues
mayhem taking off round 9pm.

Dearest Dick Lovers!
I have heard from reliable sources that Dick has returned from
unsuccessful peace negotiations in the Middle East for a special night of
entertainment with his sweet psychobilly drummer Slick the Hick and that
lovely sound farmer Marty Brown sowing wild fields of noise and so forth
around 10pm this Saturday night the 29th at Cafe Bello. An extra exciting
addition to the nights proceedings is the inclusion of those sexy young
hipsters the O'toole Project on the bill who will be pumping out noises
that will reap those fields and so forth. Take your friends there around
10pm I'm told.

Just a quick email to remind you all of Dick's gig on the Gold Coast
tonight at the Hard Rock Cafe. Awesome bill featuring Summer Was Hell and
The Greys. This is one of the last nights of live music at the HRC and one
of Dick's rare performances on the south coast so bring your grannies as
its going to be a pumping night.
Dick will also be back in Brisbane Sunday night to blow the roof off Rics
Cafe with local sex symbol and harmonica player extraordinaire Daisy
Desert. Dick n Daisy will be supported by Imperial Black who will hit the
stage around 9pm.
So if youre on the south coast or in Brisbane this weekend get your ass
down to one of these hot Dick Desert gigs.

Dearest Sweeties!
Well my lovely ones I've decided there is a god as Dick has a whole
weekend of gigs coming up which should keep the little bugger out from
under my nose and leave me far more important things to do with my time
like writing fan mail to that lovely Pete Doherty boy.
So here are the details -
Dick Desert and his mouth organ maestro, Cousin Daisy, play Cafe
Bello(10pm Friday 30th and 9pm Saturday 31st) and Rics Cafe (8pm Sunday
1st)this New Years weekend. Rumours are also circulating that The Reverend
Jack Morecock will also join them for a special New Years Eve set at Cafe
Bello. So why not end 2005 with some Dick and start 2006 with even more.
Also on the bill at Cafe Bello on New Years Eve is that hot young
international burlesque starlet Lola The Vamp whilst globetrotting electro
country wizard Anonymeye will be performing on the bill on both Friday and
Saturday nights.
And for all those not quite ready to let the hangover kick in come New
Years Day, Rics Cafe (the 1st) also looks like being a wild night for Dick
lovers with a bill including Matt Lobb (appearing as 'Smoke and Mirrors')
& Choomby and his Insensitive Side as well as an assortment of others.
Well thankyou all for the ongoing support of my wayward son over the past
year. Although 2005 was awesome for the young scallywag 2006 looks like
being an even better year (for me especially) with Dick being out of the
house a hell of a lot! So Happy New Year to you all and get your ass to
one of Dick's gigs on the weekend!

Darling Dick Lovers!
Youre probably asking whats this ol girl doing sending me another email
this week. Dont worry kiddies it will probably be the last you hear from
me for the year as young Dick will be having a few weeks off in
preparation for a big 2006. However, I thought I'd better let you know
that Dick will be getting down and dirty at the Troubadour on Tuesday
night (13th of Dec) as part of the end of year celebrations for Jager
Uprising and I've managed to pinch a free ticket ($8 at the door) out of
his wallet for one of you lucky darlings. Just send me a quick relpy to
this email and if youre the first to get back to me you win! Dick will be
blasting his dirty ditties at the punters from around 8pm. This is going
to be one ripper of a night as some of the best from this years Jager
Uprising gigs will be hitting the stage (see list of bands below).
So merry xmas and a happy new year and get your asses down to the Troub on
Tuesday night!

Warmest Regards

Dick Desert has fast become one of the most notorious country musicians in
Australia. Notorious for blinding shows, cutting edge country music and an
almost endless line of hot performers eager to join Dick on stage. From
humble beginnings as a mere lagerphone player Dick has worked his way up
to the festival circuit and will have played the Big Day Out, the
Edinburgh Festival and the Tamworth Country Music Festival 2006 all within
the space of 12 months. A documentary crew will be following Dick on his
inaugural visit to Tamworth. Dick also has one of his tracks appearing in
a national compilation album (to be released in March 2006) and rumours
are circulating that he will soon begin work on an album with one of
Australia's top alternative music producers. For more info on Dick check
