The Dandy Warhols have been a long-time guilty pleasure of mine, after slickly polishing up droney Velvet Underground psychedelia and eventually morphing it into what a Duran Duran grandkids’ band would sound like. Plus, Courtney Taylor is pretty hot for a dude.
So what’s the deal with their new single? “The World The People Together (Come On)”
Not that its not what you would typically expect from The Dandys. Its a fun track. Its just a reoccurrence. Something I noticed a while back…
The Brian Jonestown Massacre has been a long-time favorite of mine, after making sweet 60’s revival rock with hypnotically catchy hooks, while strictly shunning the music industry for the 18 years they’ve been together. Plus Anton Newcombe is totally out of his mind.
So what’s the deal with this track? “You Have Been Disconnected?”
Not that its not what you would typically expect from The Massacre. Its an awesome track. Its just a reoccurrence.
Something I noticed a while back.
Yeah.., go ahead. Listen to those tracks again. See?
“Dig” was a pretty cool documentary that garnered quite a bit of critical acclaim, as it chronicled 7 years in the life of two bands: The Dandy Warhols and The Brian Jonestown Massacre.
In the film, best friends Courtney Taylor and Anton Newcombe become sworn rivals and their respective bands, once united, diverged down opposite paths: The Dandys surfed the polished, sometimes predictable wave of commercial success. The Massacre self-imploded several times, shunned the music industry and blew through copious amounts of hypodermic needles.
So what’s the deal with this track: “Godless” by The Dandy Warhols
Not that I’m trying to be nitpicky. They’re awesome bands. I always thought the “rivalry” was a bit orchestra… You know what? Its just a little something…
Ok, Ok… Now listen to this one: “When Jokers Attack” by The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Whoa…, Deja Vu
