Orbital has been a favorite of mine ever since I found electronic dance music. I loved Duran Duran when I was a kid because of my older sister. Then my brother introduced me to the Smiths and Stone Roses. He and I found electronic music together in the mid-90's (we argue about it to this day, he bought Prodigy after seeing the video for Poison, I bought the Orb after seeing them on the cover of NME for UFOrb).
In 1996, there was no Glastonbury so several of the electronic acts came out to the US to support the new "electronica" movement. I went for the Orb but soon discovered Orbital, Underworld and the Chemical Brothers. Orbital was the big breakout act for me because of Organic and I've seen then a dozen times. One of the highlights of my life was getting to see them at Glastonbury in 1999, a truely amazing experience.

It has been a roller coaster of a ride for The Dandy Warhols. They always had a love/hate relationship with their (now former) record label, which is why it is no surprise that their brand new album, Earth To The Dandy Warhols, will be released on their own Beat The World Records - Source
Billboard reports: *The Dandy Warhols have partnered with World's Fair Group to launch their own label, Beat The World. A new album is expected out this year. The group was previously signed to Capitol, on which it released four studio albums. At first, The Dandys landed significant sync licenses for songs like "We Used To Be Friends" and "Boys Better," and their Capitol debut, 1997's The Dandy Warhols Come Down, has sold 103,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan; 2000 follow-up Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia has moved 164,000. But the streak was about to go south. "We started to get really frustrated with Capitol," says guitarist Peter Holmstrom. "Our records were recouping and making money for them because of all the licensing, but they weren't promoting us or paying attention." After its last album, 2005's Odditorium Or The Warlords Of Mars, moved only 38,000 units, Capitol dropped the band. "We were upset for about a week, and then we were overjoyed," Holmstrom says. A call to a Capitol rep for comment was not returned at press time.*Read the rest of the article here. - Source

Okay, that was my stab at an NME-esque headline -- did it work? So by now, we've all seen ZIA MCCABE of the Dandy Warhols nekkid. Whether it's on a stage or on some liner notes, the girl's got a penchant for exhibitionism. Now it's officially been taken to a new level, as the surprise girl of the day on the love-it-or-hate-it SuicideGirls website is the fabulous Zia herself. The bigger surprise of the full-frontal set: McCabe was VERY pregnant at the time (she recently gave birth to her first child, Matilda Louise.) McCabe swears she'll be reading everyone's comments to her on the SG website,
THE DANDY WARHOLS are set to return with their 3rd album, which is nearly completed, within the next few months. The Dandys were voted best North American band in the 1998 Excellent Poll.
