The Dandies – Bootstraps:
In the various emails i get from bands looking to have their music featured there are always a few that make me chuckle and take notice. The Dandies were one of these with there exceptionally long heeeeeeeeeeey and excessive use of superlatives, anyway there music is pretty damn good and the chorus from Bootstraps has been in my head on and off over the last few days so here they are, oh and they also wrote me a cool little short-story about the bands history!
“When The Dandies formed they were a bunch of young dudes who didn’t really even know what the hell they were doing with their instruments. Once they knew how to get by they’d start covering songs by the likes of Kings of Leon, The Libertines and The Strokes. Quickly getting bored with covering songs they moved to writing their own material. Yes, that first batch of songs wasn’t much better than their skills.
A moment of epiphany came when their to-be manager, Antony Meola, saw their potential. The lazy boys became hard working men. The Dandies were formed by brothers Adrian and Eric Weber, sons of an American mother and Swiss father, and their good friend, drummer Fabian Voirol. One thing The Dandies have seen come and go were bass players. But the core of Adrian, Eric and Fabian has always been there.
