You Were The Last High
Colm O Hare, 23 Jul 2003
Not an obviously great tune on first listen, but this second single from Welcome To The Monkey House has a habit of sneaking up on you while you’re not listening.Suffice it to say that it’s a low key, slow-burner with a strong ’80s influence that somehow recalls The Human League’s ‘Mirror Man’.

You have to suspect that, if it were not for their knack of knocking out the odd pop gem, the Dandy Warhols’ 15 minutes would’ve been up long ago. This isn’t quite one of those, although it does have that genuinely unhinged feel to it that has characterised their best work.
The Dandies seem to feel both affection and disdain for their audience, a rag-bag of every-blokes and office girls.
Quite how the Dandy Warhols have managed to keep their foot in the mainstream door for so long is one of life’s great mysteries.
