the decadent wit of The Dandy Warhols and other dance-floor-deliciousness

hello darlings

a mish-mash (but you’ll be on your feet by the end of this post and shaking out yesterday’s hairspray)


let’s start slow – like all the best DJs – sort of a warm-up with our latest article for Los Angeles I’m Yours.

are you feeling all peaceful?

a bit hippy-ish-like?

how about Bohemian?

do you know where we’re going with this?

shall we look?

You got a great car.
Yeah, what’s wrong with it today?
I used to have one too,
Maybe I’ll come and have a look.
I really love your hairdo, yeah.
I’m glad you like mine too,
See we’re looking pretty cool.

So what do you do?
Oh yeah, I wait tables too.
No I haven’t heard your band
Cause you guys are pretty new.
But if you dig on Vegan food.
Well come over to my work
I’ll have them cook you something that you’ll really love.

Cause I like you,
Yeah I like you.
And I’m feeling so Bohemian like you,
Yeah I like you,
Yeah I like you,
And I feel wahoo, wahoo, wahoo!

Wait. Who’s that guy just hanging at your pad?
He’s lookin’ kinda bummed.
Yeah you broke up that’s too bad.
I guess it’s fair if he always pays the rent
And he doesn’t get all bent
About sleepin’ on the couch when I’m there.

Cause I like you,
Yeah I like you.
And I’m feeling so Bohemian like you.
Yeah I like you.
Yeah I like you
And I feel wahoo, wahoo, wahoo!

I’m getting wise
And I feel so bohemian like you.
It’s you that I want so please,
Just a casual, casual easy thing.
Is it? It is for me

And I like you
Yeah I like you
And I like you, I like you, I like you,
Yeah I like you.
And I feel wahoo, wahoo, wahoo!

thanks to Vickie Lester for that one – we’d never come across The Dandy Warhols before and she’s right – we Do Adore them!


don’t they look EXACTLY like the sort of band that would have played in Brighton before-they-were-famous and bought those second-hand t-shirts from the bin at the back of the shop that no one knew about (only the Beautiful People) in that weird clothing store run by the guy who burned patchouli all day and wore a lot of silver rings with skulls on them (yes, the one by the Railway Station, with a nice view of the English Channel from the roof)


feel like dancing?

we know we do.


here you go – and don’t forget to stay until the end for Dolly Parton – promise?

what are wednesdays for if not dancing?


About teamgloria

I used to make my living from writing. And then it all stopped and so I went and did something else, part of which entailed a whole new look from Brooks Brothers (it wasn’t really me, but it was necessary). But a decade later I started to write again (during nights and weekends and frustrated lunch-times and long haul business travel) and one of the things I wrote (or came to me – as I do believe in the whole Muse concept) was a character called Gloria. Gloria was a trainee angel and sat “up there” waiting for her first assignment. To occupy the hours she should have been studying humans and their foibles, she spent her time enjoying the new celestial movies-on-demand channel and became obsessed by Doris Day. So you can imagine the drama that unfolded when she came to Earth. Quite a shock to the system. But Gloria was determined to see Manhattan through the eyes of a vintage Doris Day movie and something magical started to happen – to me too. Because I started to do the same thing and life became easier (and then I got Tobias the tumor which changed the trajectory, for now). There are a lot of glorious people, places & things that help me get through my day – they make my life great – and so I call them “team gloria” (although they don’t usually know that). So I thought I’d start documenting them, and looking out for new people, places & things on a daily basis, and sharing them with you (whomever you are – do say hello. Oh, and tell me who your team gloria is :-)

    Stop, stop….I am led astray…I am dancing in the kitchen instead of cooking in the kitchen :D

  2. Dearest G
    How could I resist a namesake band that looks like its from Brighton…. and don;t even start me on Ms Parton, that song or that film!
    Yours ever
