Big Dik Blak

Big Dik Blak is the solo project of Canadian Rock Singer, Keyboardist, and Bass Player George Swan. He and his company Demon Prawn Productions have released 14 albums in total to date, including albums from his old bands Patsy Decline and The Rash.

When he was 18 Big Dik moved to Steveston BC, where he got a job working on the docks, unloading fishing boats. At that time Steveston had a vibrant live music scene. Young Big Dik discovered his vocal skills and rediscovered his keyboard skills. He bought a synthesizer, a Hammond C3 and a PA, and spent long nights jamming with his friends in many bands.

While working on the docks in Steveston, he met the players that would form his first band “The Rash”. Playing mostly original material, they played for 11 years and released an album, “The Rash - The Rash”, before breaking up in 1997.

Big Dik and the remaining members of The Rash then formed Patsy Decline in 1997 out of the remnants of The Rash and a Richmond band, “Pagan” aka - “UAV-Urban Assault Vehicle”. They soon became the house band at Valhalla, a small booze-can on the banks of the Fraser River.

While playing with Patsy Decline at Valhalla, legend has it that one night Big Dik lost consciousness while playing the keyboard solo for “Highway Star”. He woke up 4 years later in Norway, working as a roadie for the Norwegian Death Metal Band “Dëth Glöttenn”. By the time he found his way back to Valhalla it was too late, Patsy Decline had split up… He decided to go solo and has been playing ever since...
