Last night in between a pizza dinner with Susie and her children we watched DiG! It was that documentary on The Dandy Warhols and The Brian Jonestown Massacre.
What was amazing was how much a crazy asswipe that singer, Anton Newcombe, was. Perhaps the point? I really couldn’t tell if the Dandy Warhols were full of shit talking about Anton’s band being the best band in the world. I found one of their records online a year or so ago and I think I got past track two before turning it off. I remember them coming through Nashville in college and hearing of the stories of them destroying the venue. At the time, that really turned me on. It still kinda does.
Needless to say, if you like watching band train wrecks, this movie is for you. The Dandy Warhol’s ain’t a bad band either.
And best quote of the film:
“You fucking broke my sitar, motherfucker!” -Anton Newcombe
