(Australia) In 1994 a groovy little band outta Portland, Oregan burst into life – they were called The Dandy Warhols. There were a group of friends who ‘needed music to drink to’, and have just announced an Australian tour.
Regarded as one of the best live bands around, The Dandy Warhols or the Dandys as they are affectionately known, have earned their reputation by delivering performances which garner reviews such as – ‘handclaps, sing-alongs and boucing galore as the Dandys energised the room and made people forget they had to work the next day’ – Fasterlouder; and ‘one of the best shows of the year, or at least one of the most freakin’ e-p-i-c’ – The Dwarf
For a band that’s been doing this for as long as they have it’s refreshing to see them still clearly loving what they do. With an impressive back catalogue, each show gaurantee’s their set list is jam packed with hook-laden pure pop gems and crowd favourites including ‘We Used To Be Friends’, ‘Horse Pills’, ‘Get Off’, ‘Godless’, ‘Everyday Should Be A Holiday’, ‘Boys Better’ and of course the evergreen crowd pleaser ‘Bohemian Like You’.
We’ll leave the final words to NME –
‘The Dandy Warhols are a lifestyle, not a performance; and intoxicating and unpredictable band.’
