The Dandy Warhols

The Dandy Warhols  is an American rock band, formed in Portland, Oregon, in 1994 by singer-guitarist Courtney Taylor-Taylor and guitarist Peter Holmström.  The band’s name is a play on the name of American pop artist Andy Warhol.  The band gained recognition after they were signed to Capitol Records and released their major label album debut, . . . The Dandy Warhols Come Down, in 1997.  In 2001, the band rose to new levels of fame after their song “Bohemian Like You” enjoyed extensive exposure thanks to it being featured in a Vodafone advertisement.  The Dandy Warhols have released ten studio albums to date.  (More from Wikipedia)

Wikipedia has a brief mention of the Richmond Sluts in the article on their drummer Brad Artley, who also performed from 1995 to 1996 with a fairly prominent neo-psychedelic outfit called the Brian Jonestown Massacre.  BJM has 14 albums listed in Allmusic, though Artley did not perform on any of them.  Brad Artley is also featured in a documentary on the Brian Jonestown Massacre and another band, the Dandy Warhols called DiG!.  (The latter band name is a takeoff on the name of artist Andy Warhol).
