The Dandy Warhols

With the demise of the Seattle grunge movement, the narcotic, psychedelic, garage pop of underground heroes The Dandy Warhols and the Brian Jonestown Massacre were earmarked as the next big thing in the mid-1990s. As chronicled in the celebrated documentary 'Dig!', they went on to international recognition and major label success while their touring partners descended into chaos and obscurity. Signing with Capitol Records in 1995, it was the single 'Not If You Were the Last Junkie On Earth' that introduced them to the mainstream, becoming a hit across Europe and propelling second album '...The Dandy Warhols Come Down' (1997) to number 16 in the UK. Its follow-up 'Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia' (2000) became the band's finest moment and produced the summer anthem 'Bohemian Like You', a huge hit after it was used in an advertising campaign and re-released. Duran Duran's Nick Rhodes produced their fourth album 'Welcome to the Monkey House' (2003) from which the small hit 'We Used to Be Friends' came, but the band's commercial success waned and they parted company with Capitol Records in 2007. They formed their own record label Beat the World Records under which they released their sixth album '... Earth to The Dandy Warhols'. Greatest hits album 'The Capitol Years 1995-2007' followed, with 'This Machine' shortly after. Footage of their 30th anniversary tour was collated and released as 'Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia Live at the Wonder' in 2014, and they put out their ninth studio album 'Distortland' in 2016 and their tenth 'Why You So Crazy' in 2019.
