THE DANDY WARHOLS Know WHAT WE ALL WANT When Covering GANG OF FOUR

3 January 2023

British indie legends Gang Of Four influenced many post-punk bands,
mainly because of guitarist Andy Gill‘s innovative way of play.

Almost 3 years ago, he passed away due to multiple organ failure and pneumonia.
He was only 1964. Since then, multiple artists paid tribute with covers of Gang Of Four songs.

One of the most notable is the rendition by Portland’s groove turbine
The Dandy Warhols of 1981 track What We All Want. A stunner of
a version. Check it out below.

Could I be happy with something else
I need something to fill my time
Could I be happy with someone else
I need someone to fill my time

Who doesn’t like making all sorts of (play)lists?

I do. Best of lists, end-of-the-year lists, golden oldies lists,
only family lists, guilty pleasure song lists, summer lists,
brand new song lists. Okay, stop, I think I made my point.

Today: THE DANDY WARHOLS

The non-stop groove machine with an instant hip-shaking impact.
The Portland band canned 11 LPs so far. Bring on a new one, dandys.

Here Are 15 Standouts By Psych Groove Junkies THE DANDY WARHOLS…

Only the greats can fill a jukebox …

THE DANDY WARHOLS are, without a shadow of a doubt, the supreme kings (and a
cool queen) of psychedelic grooves and chill-out jams. This non-stop-dope-vibe-turbo
was conceived in Portland, Oregon back in 1994 by charismatic frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor and guitarist Peter Holmström. They were joined by keyboardist Zia McCabe and drummer Eric Hedford, replaced in 1998 by Taylor-Taylor‘s cousin Brent DeBoer.

They started their sonic explorations in 1995 with debut longplayer ‘Dandys Rule OK!‘.
And they still bloody rule! With a total of ten studio albums it was hard to pick only
15 solid gold crackers to fill our Wurlitzer. Anyway, here’s Turn Up The Volume‘s jiving selection. Every day should be a Dandy Warhols holiday. Stay home, stay safe and listen
to 15 standouts by Portland’s psychedelic junkies…

The songs were selected from the following longplayers: Dandy’s Rule OK! (1995) /
