‘Singles’ Band Featuring Members of Pearl Jam Getting Record Store Day Release

Citizen Dick lives again. Who?

That was the name of the faux Seattle rock band from Cameron Crowe's 1992 film Singles, fronted by actor Matt Dillon (aka Cliff Poncier) and featuring Pearl Jam members Eddie Vedder (on drums), Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament. The group will release a special single for Record Store Day on April 18, featuring the song "Touch Me I'm Dick" on the A-side and a collection of Poncier's "interview" quotes about the song on the flip.

"Singles" also starred Bridget Fonda, Campbell Scott and Kyra Sedgwick as young adults living in Seattle during the height of the grunge rock era. The Replacements' Paul Westerberg served as the film's music director.

Crowe, meanwhile, went on to direct Pearl Jam's career documentary Pearl Jam Twenty in 2011.
