Biography

Didjits were an American punk rock band formed in Mattoon, Illinois in 1983, comprised Rick Sims (a.k.a. Rick Didjit) on guitar/vocals, Doug Evans on bass, and Rick’s brother Brad Sims on drums. Didjits was known for the aggressive guitar playing and persona of Rick Sims, who often baited the audience between songs, and took plenty of abuse for it. Moreover, the band also added odd stunts and theatrical bits to some of their stage shows, particularly when playing in Chicago and Champaign.

They released their first album in 1987 on Bam Bam Records and disbanded in 1994. Brad Sims left the band in 1992. Former Scratch Acid drummer Rey Washam filled in for the Little Miss Carriage EP, and Todd Cole eventually took over as the drummer. Their song “Killboy Powerhead” was covered by the Offspring on their breakthrough 1994 album Smash.

    How can Hornet Pinata be one of the best albums of the 80's when it was released in 1991?

    Really great punk band, Hornet Pinata & Judester are one of the best albums of 80's. Sonicalter > Killboy Powerhead в оригинале в разы сочнее и живее звучит.
