The Dandy Warhols tonight. Recorded live at Bristol Academy in 2003 by the venerable BBC. With ten albums to their credit and no end in sight, The Dandy Warhols have been swinging away and punching holes since 1994. Considered something of a mashup of Neo-Psychedelia, alternative rock, garage Rock and Synthpop, they have gained worldwide popularity, and thanks to an ad for Vodafone utilizing a track, Bohemian Like You, they gained a foothold on the collective consciousness of America by way of Advertising.
But that’s just part of their story. Together since 1994, the band has achieved a distinction not many artists can lay claim to; reaching out and grabbing new audiences while maintaining their experimental nature.
Still together after some 22 years, members of the band individually have undertaken a wide variety of side-projects and off-shoot bands.
With a new album, Distortionland to be released in April 8th, they are getting ready for a major u.S. tour, starting in April and a major European tour starting in May.
In the meantime, in case you aren’t familiar with the music of The Dandy Warhols, or are just getting into them, here is that set, recorded at Bristol Academy in 2003.
Crank this one up to 11.
