Entering their 25th anniversary year, with a new album set for release, US quartet The Dandy Warhols have championed the cause of free-spirited, freewheeling experimentalism ever since first bucking the grunge trend in their hometown of Portland, Oregon. Careering gleefully between styles including psych-rock, glam rock, garage rock, power pop, synth-pop, Britpop, shoegazing indie and even American folk, they neutralise charges of self-indulgence with winningly oddball humour. 

After all, a band who once claimed - as the Dandys did on 2005’s Odditorium or Warlords on Mars – to have invented the electric guitar, the synthesizer and the entire rock‘n’roll genre, clearly can’t be accused of over-seriousness; nor one whose early reprise of ‘Silent Night’ lent new meaning to the term ‘camp as Christmas’. Musically, though, they’ve staked the odd claim to immortality, notably their millennial hit ‘Bohemian Like You’, and continue to delight legions of loyal fans, maintaining a merry communion with their uniquely idiosyncratic muse.
