Didjits


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 bandís straight-up fast brand of rock didnít sound like much else the label was putting out at the time, but nonetheless, they attracted a large cult following.
