From an interview CTT submitted to the Daily Telegraph in Sydney:
1. DOWN UNDER DRUMMER
Dandy Warhols drummer Brent DeBoer has just moved to Melbourne, from where his wife hails. He got married out in the billabongs,” frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor says. We love Australia. We’re a guitar band, it’s a guitar country. Australia didn’t derail on the girl band/boy band/rap-rock nightmare of the late ’90s.”
2. INDIE MOOD
The next Dandy Warhols album won’t be on their own label again. “We’re terrible at business,” Taylor-Taylor admits. “Terrible. We don’t know what we’re doing. It’s like trying to have children run a household. We need to hook up with some indie label. The new stuff is sounding good. It’s a little less dirty so far.”
3. SINGLE MINDED
Their old label has released a new compilation Best of the Capitol Years 1995-2007 – with Dandy hits Bohemian Like You, We Used to Be Friends and Not If You Were the Last Junkie on Earth. “It’s funny to have all the big hits, the marginal hits and the cult hits all together on one album. It makes good sense.”
4. A WALK IN THE PARK
They’ll play the hits during their Parklife festival set. “We love playing dance festivals. We’re basically a trance band who use Simon and Garfunkel’s instruments and harmonies.”
Information on the PARKLIFE FESTIVAL!?!
