After striking gold with Everclear, Capitol Records returned to Portland and signed The Dandy Warhols, a quartet hip-deep in psychedelia-soaked pop songs that bring to mind everyone from Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd to The Jesus & Mary Chain. Songs range from the spacey, zero-gravity instrumental "Pete International Airport" to "Not If You Were The Last Junky On Earth," a cheeky pop response to heroin chic that's slathered in kitschy 80's synths. Warhols frontman Courtney Taylor's songs burrow into the deepest folds of your brain, combining layers of swirling keyboards and sharp guitar work with attention-grabbing topics from the Moral Majority ("Hard On For Jesus") to the indier-than-thou cognoscenti ("Cool As Kim Deal"). Although the Dandy's spacey head music occasionally flirts with somnambulism, there's enough hooks and shiny parts thrown in to shake you out of any stupor.
Rolling Stone (7/10-24/97, p.123) - 4.5 Stars (out of 5) - "...The Warhols are masters of the hypnotically droning riff delivered in waves of fuzz guitar and garage-band keyboards that recall everything from the Seeds and the Velvets to Stereolab and Spiritualized..."
Q (12/00, p.142) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...If we'd had this lot in the '80s baggy may never have happened....with their audible commitment to UK drone-rock and their equal lust for tunes and fun..."
Option (11-12/97, p.90) - "Like the milkshake on the menu that you know you don't need, The Dandy Warhols are good for some fleeting pleasure (even if you'll later be thinking you really shouldn't have indulged)..."
