Dandy Warhols News and Rumors Archive - March 2002

March 30, 2002 - Downtime
If you hadn't noticed, Slabtown.net was down for a few weeks. This was because of my web host being a dipshit. Hopefully it won't happen again. But, one thing that is a fallout from it is that I had to re-upload every page on the website again. I think I got them all, but let me know if I missed a few (such as broken links). All of the links should be working now.

I will update later tonight with what has happened in the past few weeks, but right now I'm off to take a nap before going to see the Slimmer Twins (Courtney and Brents band) play a show.

March 12, 2002 - Charts
In the U.K. charts this week:
Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia rose 5 more spots, up to #66.
Get Off debuted at #34. Early word is to not expect Get Off to be in the charts that long, as it hasn't gotten that broad of interest in it overall.

March 8, 2002 - Get Off;Photos
dandywarhols.com has put up a bunch of new pictures from the bands latest London trek. To see them without the hassles of going through the site, Click here. Pretty cool stuff, involving the band and various others (Boy George and Nick Rhodes, from Duran Duran). Someone e-mailed me three more pics of Courtney in London that I probably will upload later. They are from elsewhere on the web though, so it isn't anything that special.

Because I can't seem to talk enough about Get Off, here are a couple more things:
At least some, if not all, of the vinyl releases are limited edition and numbered.
The band considered releasing Solid as a single instead of Get Off, but according to Peter in an interview, which I hope to have up soon, they went with Get Off because they had already made a video for it and since they are working on their album, they didn't want to mess with a new single.

The issue of Q magazine that has pictures from Zia's wedding is apparently out now.

March 5, 2002 - Get Off Re-release
While I wait for my copies of the re-release of Get Off to arrive, I have gotten a few more pieces of information about it.

The single has, as expected, Stars and Eight Days A Week as the b-sides. Not sure what show they are from yet. It also contains the Get Off video on the CD. In addition to this, they have also re-released the Get Off vinyl edition, with Eight Days A Week being the b-side for it.

And, unfortunately, as far as I can tell, they scrapped the new artwork idea and it appears to only be the brown slabtown cover again, same as the original. I will check this for sure when my copies of all of this come in, within the next few days.

March 3, 2002 - Charts
The renewed interest for Thirteen Tales in the U.K. continues, as it climbs up to #71, 18 places higher then last week, and 55 places in 2 weeks. It should just go up again next week, with the re-release of Get Off.

March 1, 2002 - Get Off Review;Zia Interview;Feb news archived
NME.com posted a short, insignificant review of the re-release for Get Off yesterday.

On the more significant front, an interview with Zia was posted on the Dandysrule2 mailing list. It Will be appearing in print, but I am not sure where yet. I will update this when I know (Oh, and don't bother to bookmark the location of the zia interview on my site. It is only a temporary address for it.). The interview is pretty interesting, as it sheds information about her real name, birthdate and hints at some opinions of british press.
