25 January 2019

Portland’s famous groovers THE DANDY WARHOLS celebrate their 25th birthday as a band this year with their tenth studio album titled WHY YOU SO CRAZY released today. After a couple of spins it’s crystal clear to Turn Up The Volume‘s ears that this is simply one of their best longplayers ever. An eclectic record covering various genres of music’s history executed The Dandys way. From the nostalgic Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers intro to the classical piano closer and lots of psych grooves, catchy country, rockin’ crackers, darkish musings and electro funky beats in between. Different moods, different vibes. The most varied LP they ever produced. Press the button and join me on a sonic chameleon ride…

by DESTROY BOYS (Sacramento, CA, US)
This turbulent female driven Californian three-piece re-injects riot grrl’s vehemence and feminist punk outspokenness with fresh adrenalin. Check their new LP ‘Make Room‘ here.


8.’All Dolled Up’ by PARLIAMO (Scotland)
A stormy uppercut from its first swaggering beat to its flamboyant finale. Banging drums, hurry-scurry guitars, nasty bass, edged vocals and a scream & shout-along chorus. Top!

Barbed wire riffage, stomping beating, vocal spitting, and an overall rowdy panache that gets you in the right mood to kick all bloody Trumps and Mays off this messed-up planet.

Even After 25 Years There’s No Doubt – Groove Masters THE DANDY WARHOLS Are Here ‘FOREVER’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

25 October 2018

Portland‘s legendary jam masters THE DANDY WARHOLS have big plans for 2019.
The quartet will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a new (10th) LP and live shows.
To start the festive party here’s new single FOREVER . A slo-mo groove with a darkish undertone sounding like a hip classical symphony. Both enigmatic and magnetic. Both funky and ghostly. Let it be loud and clear… The Dandys are here to stay!

Frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor said about the accompanying clip for the new track:
“To get a feel for the massive length of our career in a three and a half minute video, I broke
it up into 3 parts and used Greek mythology as my guide. First, the labyrinth with the minotaur guarding the passage. A classic jerk doorman with a tiny nose ring making us wait as if he’s gotta make sure these are the right ghosts. Welcome to our lives. Next, the hermaphrodite angel (wearing a tie as subtle symbolism). Sweet and just wants to be helpful, not making a distinction whether it’s for better or worse. Finally, Cerberus the multi-headed dog, which represents our personal demons or whatever drives us to continue doing this.”

“All in all it sounds like and probably is a pretentious
lot of shit, but it sure feels good to do it anyway.”

Let’s roll…
