Everybody Loves Dick

The Life and Times of Dick Ripper

Dick Ripper left a sleepy trailer park in Lubbock, TX for a new life in Las Vegas. The rearview mirror was aglow with the bridges he burned as his foot stomped on the accelerator of his unregistered Ford LTD. Dick drove across the desert, keeping hydrated with an ever-warming case of Miller High Life, and a single bottle of water.

He ripped a tiny piece of the stuff from the tinfoil envelope and placed it under his tongue. The acid, he figured, was stronger and cheaper than coffee.  

Dick only had two cassette tapes to make the 13 hour trek. The fourth time through "Neil Diamond's Greatest Hits" is what caused his mind to finally crack. All the radio would give him on a consistent basis was religious talk and angry conservatives. The air conditioning stopped working somewhere around Albuquerque.

Everyone Loves Dick is a lysergic, modern Western about the new American West, love, loss, and the transformative power of buying a slightly used automobile.   Everyone Loves Dick uses TSTMRKT's signature "All Gas No Brakes" performance style with a constantly moving, relentless soundscape, film loops, and unhinged story arc.
