Beat the World When a band splits from a major label after a messy break-up, they often take it as an opportunity to have a long, hard look at themselves, reignite their relationship with what made them tick in the first place, and return with all guns blazing. Not so with the Dandies. Now independent, their steady descent into the rubbish bin continues with this sixth album. It’s not all bad: And Then I Dreamt of Yes, The World Come On and Wasp in the Lotus catch that slick psychedelic vibe that is the Dandies’ forte. The fact is that in the 1990s they were often interesting and occasionally funny, but the joke has worn thin. With Courtney Taylor-Taylor, now 41, still rambling on like some stoned teenage slacker this is, for the most part, vacuous and instantly forgettable. www.dandywarhols.com
