"all this and puppet stew" is the seventh studio album by punk rock band The Dickies, which started in 1976 in Los Angeles. It was released in May 2001 on Fat Wreck Chords on CD and LP format, and include a Jethro Tull and The Isley Brothers covers ("see my way" and "nobody but me") plus eleven original songs. Only their sixth album of original material in 24 years (ahh, the productivity of heroin addiction!), All This and Puppet Stew proves the Dickies are at least incapable of making a bad one. They broke half their formula on the previous two records, dropping the sidesplitting comedy that made their first four LPs ageless gases. They'll never banish the glorious power pop punk that's forever been their hallmark, but the bandmembers now care about making more genial loud guitar pop as scintillating as the stack of 1960s records they cherish. "Marry Me, Ann," "I Did It," and "Huge" all reach back for the hummable, lovable, heart-tug-able greatness of their old Quick cover, "Pretty Please Me." Stan Lee still keeps the fat power riffs coming, and Leonard Phillips wraps his thick, boyish, goofy-sweet voice around the abundant melodies with his voluble charm. There's nothing about hunchbacks, pagodas, Asian TV anchorwomen, gorillas, Sammy Davis, Jr., the Pep Boys, waterslides, cholos, zombies, the Germs' bassist, mole men, talking penises, or even covers of cartoon themes, but there are some clever / funny-dumb songs in "Wack the Dalai Lama," "He's Courtin' Courtney" (ha ha!), and the first-rate "My Pop the Cop." Meanwhile, the Dickies-ized covers this time are "See My Way," "Donut Man," and the Human Beinz hit "Nobody But Me." Truly highly recommended.
