The recklessness and abandon that got me into punk in the first place… a teetering train about to off the rails. I couldn't wait to hear what was next. — Dexter Holland (The Offspring) The best Rock and Roll band of the 80s. — Steve Albini (Shellac, Big Black) Kick Ass Rock and Roll… I'm in love! — Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys) Didjits began in Champaign-Urbana in 1985. Rick Sims (vocals/guitar) and brother, Brad Sims (drums) recruited bassist Doug Evans to complete the three-piece. They recorded two albums before Touch and Go picked them up in 1988. By this time Rick Sims had transformed into the notorious frontman, Rick Didjit, whose on-stage antics were only as famous as his frequently hilarious wardrobe of unconventional suits. The band's straight-up fast brand of rock didn't sound like much else the label was putting out at the time, but nonetheless, they attracted a large cult following.
