The Dandy Warhols are an American alternative rock band formed in Portland, Oregon in 1994. The band was founded by singer-guitarist Courtney Taylor-Taylor and guitarist Peter Holmström, with 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. Early on The Dandy Warhols performed in bars throughout Portland and became well-known for their nudity-filled live shows. At their first gig in 1994, they were approached by Tim/Kerr Records, who offered to pay for the recording of an album. The result was 1995's “Dandys Rule OK,” which combined elements of 1960s garage rock and 1990s shoegaze music. The album impressed Capitol Records, who decided to sign the band, and in 1997 they released their second studio album and major label debut, “...The Dandy Warhols Come Down,” which produced the popular single “Not If You Were the Last Junkie on Earth.” In 2000, the band released their third studio album, “Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia,” to critical and commercial success, after the re-release of their single “Bohemian Like You” was featured in a popular Vodafone advertisement. It has since become the band's most well-known song and has been featured in a number of films and television shows. The band's fourth studio album, “Welcome to the Monkey House,” was produced by Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran and released in 2003. This album constituted a change of style for the band, featuring synthesizers and a strong 1980’s influence. One of the album's singles, “We Used to Be Friends,” went on to become one of the band's most popular tracks, gaining exposure through use as the theme song for the American cult drama “Veronica Mars,” and later, the Australian reality television series “My Restaurant Rules.” In 2009, the band released an earlier mix of this same album as “The Dandy Warhols Are Sound” on their Beat the World label. This version of the album was the initial mix by Grammy Award-winning soul producer Russell Elevado that was rejected by Capitol Records and shelved for six years. Along with The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Dandy Warhols were the subjects of the 2004 documentary film “Dig!.” The film captured a love–hate relationship between both bands, highlighting the interaction of Taylor-Taylor and BJM frontman Anton Newcombe. It was recorded over the course of seven years by Ondi Timoner, and won the Documentary Grand Jury Prize at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival. In the same year, the band released a double album, “The Black Album/Come On Feel the Dandy Warhols,” comprising “The Black Album,” an album recorded before “...The Dandy Warhols Come Down” that was rejected by Capitol Records and dismissed by the band themselves, and “Come On Feel The Dandy Warhols,” a collection of B-sides, covers, and unreleased songs. The band released their seventh studio album, “Odditorium or Warlords of Mars,” in 2005 to a mixed critical response. It was partially named after and recorded in the band's own Odditorium studio. The album was a return to the psychedelic guitar-oriented rock of “...The Dandy Warhols Come Down,” moving away from the synth-heavy sound of “Welcome to the Monkey House.” Two singles were released from the album, “Smoke It” and “All the Money or the Simple Life Honey.” In 2006, the band released the stand-alone single “Have a Kick Ass Summer (Me and My Friends),” which was later re-recorded as “Mis Amigos” for their 2008 album “...Earth to the Dandy Warhols....” That album was their first album to be released on their self-founded Beat the World Records label, after splitting with Capitol Records in 2007. The album featured collaborations with Mark Knopfler and the Heartbreakers' Mike Campbell on the track “Love Song.” Their eighth studio album, “This Machine,” was released in 2012. The band shifted to a more rock- and experimental-orientated approach on “This Machine” than on their previous three albums.

Outlaw Exits – Escaping the Machine. - Richard K. Morgan Brent DeBoer never meant to turn road agent, I swear. I knew that man better than anybody alive, and he had a heart bigger than the motherlode at Tombstone. But it’s hard on a man, coming up the way he did, all hardscrabble and hand-to-mouth from just about the time he could walk. He wasn’t no more than a boy, really, when he worked his first round-up over in Lincoln county, but he came back a man, and I should know, I seen enough to know the difference. That round-up put dollars in his pocket for the first time in his life, and more than that, it got him a reputation around the other cowhands.

I don’t know what he did in those weeks exactly, but there was a new Colt on his hip at the end of it and something different in his face, and when he took his shirt off that night upstairs at Meg’s Place there was a scar went right across his chest like lightning in a Wyoming sky. I didn’t see a lot of him after that – he was on cattle drives and working the ranches all across the territory. But I heard the stories just like everyone else, and I didn’t want to believe them, but I could see why they might be true. He’d come see me sometimes, when he had the money for it. He never went with any of the other girls, at least not the ones in Meg’s Place, and he’d always treat me real nice, so no matter what stories they told, I knew there was that little part of him hadn’t changed. But then, when the range war came, he went with the Regulators, and that turned his heart just about black.

I could feel it in him, one time he sneaked a visit, it was like range wire strung tight through every muscle in his body. Anyhow, after the army came to Lincoln in the summer and the Regulators scattered, Brent got out with the Mexicans and I thought I’d never see him again. But he sneaked back one last time to see me in the Autumn. Garrett and his murderers were still chasing Billy McCarty and Tom O’Folliard and some of the others, but I think they’d forgotten about Brent. That made it easier for him, and so did the storm there was that night, beating rain like Noah’s own flood and lightning like that scar on his chest. He had this wild look in his eyes the whole time, and he was talking strange, wouldn’t tell me what his plans were, just kept saying over and over that he’d “found some people” and he was “headed for the pines”.
