After striking gold with Everclear, Capitol Records returned to Portland and signed The Dandy Warhols, a quartet hip-deep in psychedelia-soaked pop songs that bring to mind everyone from Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd to The **** & Mary Chain. Songs range from the spacey, zero-gravity instrumental "Pete International Airport" to "Not If You Were The Last Junky On Earth", a cheeky pop response to heroin chic that's slathered in kitschy 80's synths. Warhols frontman Courtney Taylor's songs burrow into the deepest folds of your brain, combining layers of swirling keyboards and sharp guitar work with attention-grabbing topics from the Moral Majority ("Hard On For ****") to the indier-than-thou cognoscenti ("Cool As Kim Deal"). Although the Dandy's spacey head music occasionally flirts with somnambulism, there's enough hooks and shiny parts thrown in to shake you out of any stupor.
