Best of R8B on 1150AM from July 12th, 2007 with Central Services, Dino Stamatopoulos & Andy Dick

On July 12th, 2007  Central Services were the musical guests on Radio8Ball. Andy Dick (News Radio, The Ben Stiller Show) was scheduled to be the musical guest but we couldn’t reach him, so at the last minute we invited his old comedy partner (and friend of the show) Dino Stamatopoulos (Community, Moral Orel) to fill in for him, and we had a great time. Andy did eventually show up and it’s always fun to hear the two of them riff.

With this song about unquenchable desire Candypants brings the 5 of Wands to life.

Candypants is a superior pop band from Los Angeles, CA

Lisa and Andras collaborated on several songs for a yet-to-be-completed project, Smartypants,
exploring the lives of great writers who moved to Hollywood and hated it.

and on Shmushkin’s Total Fucking Bullshit CD.

Andy Dick
“Good Luck With That”
The Devil

15-The Devil

The Devil is a very misunderstood card.

He represents masculine procreative energy
and a wicked sense of humor.

Andy Dick is our personal Devil card,
a man whose phallic nature is reflected in his name…
and his life.

This is a song he wrote with Andras Jones about seducing “straight” men in bathrooms.



From Andras Jones:

I met Andy in 1988 through Anthony Rapp with whom I had just worked on the film “Far From Home”. They knew each other from Chicago.

Andy was living in an apartment near the Scientology center in LA with his young wife and child. When they moved back to Chicago he stayed on my couch for months.

I was in the original Circus of Freaks with Anthony, Andy & Dino Stamatopoulos.

One of my proudest moments.



Over the years Andy’s has ripped me off,
claimed credit for my work,
publicly insulted me,
and physically abused me.

I still consider him one of my best friends.

Such is The Devil’s talent.


Writing “with” Andy Dick pretty much meant following him around with a guitar
and turning his daily devolution from morning health freak to afternoon wino to nocturnal erotic pac man,
into “writing sessions”.

These sessions yielded songs I would later record at Willie Wisely’s studio in Laurel Canyon.

Andy would come in once the song was done, and sing on these tracks.

At his best, which is rarely, Andy is a comic genius.
I call him the “comic monster”.

He is also one of the most expressive pure rock singers I’ve ever worked with.

Writing with Andy in Hollywood
felt like working with the guy Jim Morrison wished he could get away with being,
in the same neighborhood.

Most of these songs ended up on Andy’s CD “The Darkest Day of The Year
or in his feature film directorial debut “Danny Roane: First Time Director“.

Despite writing the songs, co-producing the tracks, and lining up most of the musicians, I was never credited.

This is what happens when you work for The Devil…

…you get fucked.

If you’re lucky (and I was) you enjoy every minute of it.
