Their frontman Anton Newcombe is notoriously unstable, and if anyone’s seen the documentary “Dig!” about him and The Dandy Warhols, they’ll know what I’m talking about. Anton does indeed have “Kangeroos In The Top Paddock” and once released an album called “Thank God For Mental Illness”.
Here’s a clip from “Dig!” where Anton f*cks up an gig that was supposed to get him a huge record contract. Amazing stuff, especially the quote at the end “They broke my sitar, motherf*cker”
Anton is a very prolific musician, and the “Tepid Peppermint Wonderland” compilations are a good place to start.
He also gives all his albums away free on his website, here.
If you haven’t seen “Dig!” – I would recommend it as one of the best rock n roll movies ever.
