Dandys Resurrected

SPIN iconBy: SPIN Staff // March 25, 2005

The Dandy Warhols would have become another mid-’90s flash in the pan were it not for last year’s riveting documentary Dig, chronicling the fraught relationship between the Dandy Warhols’ frontman Courtney Taylor and the mercurial, drug-addled lead singer of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Anton Newcombe. Riding on the notoriety from that well-received film, the Dandys are releasing their first new album in three years, titled Odditorium or the Warlords of Mars, sometime this summer. Let’s hope some of the frenetic charisma of Newcombe has worn off on Taylor–the Dandys need an infusion of inspiration.
