I really don't know what to think about this band. I love them, i love listening to their songs, but I sometimes feel that they have written a hundred times the same song, again and again.
But I love their songs, btw.
Everybody should read Courtney's ranking of the band's albums for Noisey. It's so batshit insane. He also mentions Jet being cool at least twice. https://noisey.vice.com/en_us/article/3kgzmk/rank-your-records-the-dandy-warhols-courtney-taylor-taylor
We chatted with Zia McCabe a few days after the band kicked off its new This Machine tour in San Francisco. Reaching the band’s 20th anniversary, McCabe, more than ever, is nervous about the reactions. Find out why on http://blog.eventseeker.com/2012/06/08/catching-up-with-zia-mccabe-of-the-dandy-warhols/
yeah, there's not much point in comparing them. it's like saying your organic beef jerky sucks, you need to have some gourmet filet mignon instead. i think DiG! confused everyone. of course BJM is on another planet entirely, but that's doesn't stop the dandys from having a bunch of sweet little tunes. maybe another thing is that BJM has never made a crap song, while dandys are very hit-or-miss.
