When your band’s name is a pun on American pop artist Andy Warhol you know that you are not your run-of-the-mill rock band. Formed in Portland, Oregon in 1993, The Dandy Warhols is comprised of Courtney Taylor-Taylor on vocals, Peter Holmström on guitar, Zia McCabe on keyboards, and Brent De Boer on drums.
The band started off making music that their friends could drink to. Influenced by the likes of The Velvet Underground, The Rolling Stones, Simon and Garfunkel, The Beach Boys, and The Beatles it is understandable that they have a kind of retro rock sound. They have gathered a following over the years not just for the way they sound, but also for the way they look. In their live shows, which have gained them sold-out box offices in Europe and Australia, it is not unusual to see them dressed in shirts with ruffles, lots of eye make up and sometimes they even strip down and perform in the nude.
