Oval Callout: Is That Uranus??

Welcome to Big Dik’s Website!! - You’ll find the latest                     Big Dik Blak news here and of course, the latest recordings and swag… This site was last updated    October 22, 2018

Big Dik Blak was born on a Delta in a muddy river, surrounded by swamps and Boozecans.  His Momma took one look at him and knew she had to give him his name… “Well I looked down” she said “and there it was… bigger than even his own body at that point… “  “I couldn’t believe it when he reached over and grabbed at the keys of a Hammond organ!”  she says, “I told him “I think you’ll be famous for one of two things...””.

- Big Dik wants to thank the fans for coming out and continuing to support him!!

What’s New?? - Big Dik has been busy with a Publicist in England, Quite Great PR, who is helping BD get a lot of reviews.  On this website BD has added a new Big Dik’s Reviews page where he’s included lot’s of reviews, and you’ll see he’s made many new friends!

He also got a YouTube channel, and is now on Soundcloud, Bandcamp and CD Baby.  He can be heard streaming on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, UMA, Deezer, Saavn, Tidal, Yonder, Xbox, YouTube etc. in over 69 Countries worldwide! Stay tuned for the links to all that. 

Big Dik saw an Ogopogo!! in Okanagan Lake after starting recording for his latest album Welcome to Turtle Island - Ogopogo's are the Canadian equivalent to the Loch Ness monster - See below for the inspiring Ogopogo story...

Also big news for Patsy Decline fans, a long lost video of Patsy Decline Live at Valhalla!! - Big Dik found a long lost video of Patsy Decline Live at Valhalla from back in the  day.  It is from 1997 just days before Mickey G left the band to join The Handsome Devils.  It shows Patsy Decline at their best (with those band members) in full flight.  Big Dik cleaned it up and has released it on his Demon Prawn Productions YouTube Channel.  There is a link to it on the BD Links page.  BD thinks the video might be from the same performance he used for the Patsy Decline More Live at Valhalla album.  Check it out and see what you think!

Big Diks encounter with an Ogopogo- Aug 24, 2018

 

Big Dik says - Quote:  For the past few months I’ve been recording my next album “Welcome to Turtle Island” on the  shores of Okanagan Lake, a huge inland freshwater lake in Canada.  I had borrowed the Rolling Stones mobile recording studio truck/lorry that Deep Purple had used back in the day at Montreaux.  I had shipped it over here in May so I could use it throughout the summer.  I have it parked on the shoreline and am recording live outside on a stage I have set up there overlooking the lake.

I was working on my song “Deep in the Mountain” when I noticed something slowly approaching in the lake.  It then stopped.  It was there for about twenty minutes, it appeared to be listening!  I could see it’s neck and head.  After I stopped playing the creature slowly slid below the surface out of sight.  I asked one of the local native Indians what it was and he said “It’s an Ogopogo”.  “Are you sure?” I asked  “Yes”  he sad.  “We know about Ogopogo’s.  She is sacred”.  “How do you know it’s a she?”  I asked”.  “Well” he said “If you look closely you can tell.  That one was a female, but there’s males too”  he said.  “Wow” I thought “That’s a big lake!  And very deep”.  “Yes very deep” said the Indian.  “And she seems to like Prog Rock”  I said.  “Yes” said the Indian “You should have been here in the 60’s.  It was unbelievable”  “I knew it!”  I thought.  “that’s what I’ve said a thousand times!”.  “Me too” said the Indian smiling “me too.

I spent the next 2 and ½ months recording and have seen the Ogopogo 3 more times.  Each time I’ve been unable to get a picture, the Ogopogo only comes when I’m playing, so I’m hoping to get some female volunteers up here to help me out on many levels.  The Ogopogo seems very intelligent to me, very calm and very large.  She seems to like the distorted Hammond/Leslie organ run through old tube guitar amp sounds, and of course the old school mono-synths.  I’m very happy to have seen her and hope I will again!  It was great.

-End-

There you have it folks Big Dik swears it’s all true.  I hope The Rolling Stones don’t mind BD still has their truck...

 

Here’s Some More background Info…  BD had sworn there would be no downloads of anykind, this is from a Big Dik 2016 Big Dik News Flash!!!  Quote: All thirteen albums are now available as Downloads from stores like iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp and CD Baby etc., They can also be heard streaming from sites like Spotify, iTunes  and Amazon etc.  What happened??  Did they get to Big Dik?  See Below for Historical Inspiring Big Dik Gypsy Fortune Teller Story!! 

 

- January 3, 2016 - After seeing some of the early sales numbers from 2015, Big Dik went to see a Gypsy Fortune Teller…  He sat down across from her… “Hello”  said Big Dik, “I am troubled, and was wondering if you could help me out…  My name is...”.  “Stop!!” said the Gypsy holding up her hand.  “I know who you are and what you do….”.  “Really?”  asked Bik Dik.  “Yes…  everything” said the Gypsy looking away, “Please continue..”.  “Well” Big Dik continued, “I released an album in 2014 called Big Dik Blak Live at Valhalla...”.  “Yes” said the Gypsy, “I know that…  It is truly one of the great live albums of our times …  I love your version of “I’m a Man…”  and of course “Marseilles””.  “I’m glad you like it” said Big Dik, “the problem is, I have only had limited sales in 20 “.  “Stop!!” interrupted the Gypsy, holding up her hand.

 “I know what your going to say...  Why are you only having limited sales when that album is so good?” she said.  Big Dik nodded, “Exactly…  You know it’s available in almost every record store in Canada, off my website, Indiepools’ website, Amazon...”  “Stop!!” said the Gypsy, “I know all this already… Let me look into my crystal ball…”  she looked deep into the glowing orb...  “Yes,” she said, “There it is….   the answer…..  beckoning… to me...”.  Big Dik looked uncomfortably at his watch, then looked around…  “Uh…“ he said.  “Be patient!!” declared the gypsy.  “Yes I see it now...” she said, staring creepily into the distance.

 “It’s 2016” she said, “You have to get with the times…  Allow downloads and streaming of your fabulous album… A CD only album, although born from a noble sentiment, is too limited… You have to let it all hang out, so to speak…”  Big Dik stared at her, “Are you sure?!?   Remember what happened last time…  They stole my things…  I got frozen and then arrested!!”  “Yes” said the Gypsy, “That was true then but now I say…  If you don’t hang out your fruit, no one can pluck it from your vine!!  Now sign here… and here… and here…  Give me $50” she said, “No wait… 70”.  Big Dik gave her $100.  “You are a good boy Big Dik” she said, “Do you want to go in the bushes?”  “Yes!!” said Big Dik, immediately cheering up.  “Too bad!!” cried the Gypsy, “Your time is up!!  Go!!”  She stared creepily into the distance…  Big Dik stayed put.

“You’ve done the right thing” she said reassuringly.  “I hope so” said Big Dik, “I told everyone that I would never allow Downloads or Streaming of any kind!!”  “If anyone asks…” pronounced the Gypsy, “You send them to me… and remember” she continued, “because of International music licensing issues, you can’t sell downloads of Big Dik Blak Live at Valhalla yourself, from your Big Dik website...”  “Wh.. what the…” Big Dik stammered, “are you sure?”  The Gypsy nodded sternly, “Yes.. but because your next album, “Big Dik Blak - The Truth is Hard”, is all original Big Dik songs, you can sell downloads of that one from your website.”  Big Dik’s eyes glazed over, as a deep throbbing pain started shooting from his proboscis.  “Right… makes sense… Oh well…  OK...” Big Dik wearily agreed.  “I’ll do it”.  “Good… Now Go!!” demanded the gypsy, pointing at the door of the tent.

“Wait… What about iTunes?” asked Big Dik.  “That was the second page you signed.” said the Gypsy, “You always read things before you sign them right?”  Big nodded, “Good!” said the Gypsy… “Now go!!.  “Wait” said Big Dik, “how will I tell the fans?”  “Put it on your Big Dik Website.” said the Gypsy…  “How do you know about my website?” asked Big Dik.  “Listen said the Gypsy, “I know everything… are you kidding me??  Do you think I pay retail for anything??”  The Gypsy smirked, “No… No….  ” She looked up intensely, “now” said the Gypsy, “you will see your Big Dik album, your Big Dik swag sales, and your Big Dik fan base, expand again and again… get it?”  Big Dik nodded.  “Good.. You are a good boy Big Dik…” smiled the gypsy, “Please stay in touch… Now... Go!!”.  Big Dik stumbled off… “She’s terrific!!” he thought to himself, “and  a real Gypsy… Wow!!”   “I’m sure she’s right about the music too…”  Big Dik felt better.  “Now back to work “ he quipped, “I gotta get that next album, “The Truth is Hard” out there, as soon as possible…  I wonder if that Gypsy has a sister?  Hmmm…”  

So there it is fans  - Big Diks albums are now available at iTunes and other download sites.  Big Dik says “Please download the whole albums, if possible!”  They were designed as a package, and that’s why he’s selling them that way.  Also please tell your friends, family and co-workers!!  Thanks fans!!  Now back to…
