The Dandy Warhols are an American rock band, formed in Portland, Oregon, in 1994 by singer-guitarist Courtney Taylor-Taylor and guitarist Peter Holmström, who were joined by keyboardist Zia McCabe and drummer Eric Hedford. Hedford left in 1998 and was replaced by Taylor-Taylor’s cousin Brent DeBoer. The band’s name is a play on the name of American pop artist Andy Warhol.
The band gained recognition after they were signed to Capitol Records and released their major label album debut, …The Dandy Warhols Come Down, in 1997. In 2001, the band rose to new levels of fame after their song “Bohemian Like You” enjoyed extensive exposure thanks to its being featured in a Vodafoneadvertisement. The Dandy Warhols have released eight studio albums to date.
The Dandy Warhols have already established themselves as musical icons with their songs “Bohemia\n Like You,” “Not If You Were The Last Junkie On Earth,” and “We Used To Be Friends.” In August of 2008 they released Earth To The Dandy Warhols, their sixth full-length album, on their own label Beat The World Records. Released initially as part of a subscription service that also gave members access to the exclusives through the rest of the year, the album was followed by a successful world tour. On July 14, 2009, Beat The World released The Dandy Warhols ARE Sound, the previously unheard “Director’s Cut” of 2003’s Welcome To The Monkey House.
On January 28, 2014, The Dandy Warhols announced plans to release their first live album, which was recorded at The Wonder Ballroom during the band’s thirteenth anniversary tour of Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia. The album, titled Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia Live at the Wonder, was released on March 25, 2014.
