The Dandy Warhols transform the House of Strombo into Distortland

Editorial Staff
The Strombo Show, April 10, 2016

Listen to the April 10, 2016, episode of the Strombo Show.


"This record kills me, man. I can’t believe it. I love it. It’s turned me into the gothic teenager. It makes me feel better. It makes me feel great." — Courtney Taylor-Taylor of the Dandy Warhols 

The Strombo Show ran the gamut this Sunday night, keeping the spirit of radio alive by delivering the best records in the best order. It's a show for music lovers by music lovers, ranging over three hours of commercial-free music to honour both old and new.

George Stroumboulopoulos welcomed an intimate performance from the Dandy Warhols. 

The Portland-based influencers have been delivering their catchy dosage of psychedelic pop since 1994. The Dandy Warhols have recently released their 10th album, the raucous and melodically fluid Distortland. In a low-key album celebration party, Courtney Taylor-Taylor, Peter Holmstrom and Brent DeBoer visit the House of Strombo to perform a few cuts off the record, as well as a cover Eddy Grant and a rare, acoustic rendition of "Bohemian Like You." 

Also, George dropped some exclusive premieres from Montreal's fuzzy duo Solids and singer-songwriter Jenny Berkel, while rifling through some of his favourite records of yesterday — and those that might have been forgotten.

You know what to do: Lock it. Crank it! Join the collective.
