The Brian Jonestown Massacre

They have released seventeen albums, three compilation albums, five live albums, thirteen EPs, sixteen singles, and five various-artist compilation albums to date. The group was the subject of the 2004 documentary film Dig!, which won the grand jury prize at that year’s Sundance Film Festival.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre’s sound blends elements of 1960s psychedelic rock with contemporary garage rock, punk rock, shoegazing, and folk music. Newcombe has frequently cited 1960s acts such as The Rolling Stones, The Velvet Underground, and The 13th Floor Elevators as major influences on his songwriting and musical aesthetic. He has also praised more contemporary acts such as Spacemen 3 and The Jesus and Mary Chain.

The Dandy Warhols rose to prominence after releasing their major label debut album, …The Dandy Warhols Come Down (1997), which included the singles “Not If You Were the Last Junkie on Earth” and “Bohemian Like You”. Their fourth album, Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia (2000), was given the Q Magazine Album of the Year award. It featured the song “We Used to Be Friends”, which became their biggest US college radio hit and garnered them significant mainstream attention.

In 2003 they collaborated with Brian Jonestown Massacre’s Anton Newcombe to release the collaborative album Welcome to the Monkey House. Its DC Turnpike/Interstate 95 inspired cover art was nominated for a Grammy Award. In 2010 they released This Is The Dandy Warhols Album, their ninth studio album.
