In the 90s, Anton was the Johnny Appleseed of west coast neo-psychedelia, sending former band members and pals out to form the Dandy Warhols, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and the Warlocks. Anton first assembled the BJM in San Franciscos Haight-Ashbury in 1990. Their very name was a rejection of the then-trendy single-word band names like Ride and Lush, and a harkening back to the misfit-genius Rolling Stone and one of the Citys greatest, weirdest tragedies.
Right now, BJM is making some of the most exciting music of their career. Rock writer Sylvie Simmons sat down with Anton in London, and reports, He plays me a few new songs; they're good. Never Become Emotionally Attached to Man, Woman, Beast or Child is hypnotic, jangly, the Beatles via the Byrds; Seer is like a psychedelic Phil Spector. " Those tracks are on "We Are The Radio".
