    Yeah, baby... except, the "stalking" behavior of the "insane" outcast musician Anton Newcombe seems blown out of proportion and played up, even by Newcombe, but especially by the Dandies, for effect. As a documentary and a party movie the scheme works... Most intriguing of all is Zia McCabe's admission of "paying for all of the coke" that funded the Dandy Warhols' collective musicalYeah, baby... except, the "stalking" behavior of the "insane" outcast musician Anton Newcombe seems blown out of proportion and played up, even by Newcombe, but especially by the Dandies, for effect.

    Funny, fun, amazing music, and most of all, it's inspirational and teaches you a lot about the music industry and how to make it and how to fail. It was an adventure through and through and at no point did it get slow or boring. Plus the music was fantastic. Although it was a bit of a Springeresque portrayal of the Massacre, it wasn't overly innacurate either.

    It's a cross between VH1's "Behind the Music" and MTV's "The Real World." However, before you judge Anton too harshly, you may want to read his side of the story here: http://www.brianjonestownmassacre.com/dig_statement.html

    May not be for all tastes, but it's an up close and personal look at a true rock 'n' roll animal.

    These flashes push Dig! beyond recording-industry kvetch, causing it to stay with you longer than either band's ephemeral music.
