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…
