In 1994, Courtney Taylor-Taylor formed "The Dandy Warhols" in Portland, Oregon. After one independent record, the band was signed to Capitol Records. They quickly became media and film-music darlings finding favor in the U.S. indie scene as well as major pop success abroad. In 2000, Taylor-Taylor directed and appeared in his short film "The End Of The Old As We Knew It" which had its debut at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival. The film features Ione Skye, Donovan, Kirsty Hume and Scott Weiland. The history of The Dandy Warhols was captured by Ondi Timoner in her 2004 Sundance Grand Jury Award-winning documentary film Dig! (2004).
