Dandy Warhols Frontman Attempts To Volunteer In BP Oil Spill Cleanup To No Avail

Courtney Taylor-Taylor

Frustrated by the lack of response and general hoop-jumping he was recently made to go through in order to become involved in the BP oil spill cleanup effort, singer, songwriter, guitarist, and all around splendid gentleman Courtney Taylor-Taylor just posted the following on The Dandy Warhols’ official site:


I called two different places whose numbers were listed in the paper down here “if you would like to volunteer”.

The first one said they didn’t have anything for me and told me to ask local people if they knew anyone to ask. The second told me that all of the cleanup jobs were paid positions hired by BP and I’d have to apply for one if I wanted to help. Wtf?!!! No wonder there are maybe tens or hundreds of thousands of dying birds/fish/animals etc and maybe tens or dozens of people working to save them.

Anyhoo, they took my info and said if I was interested in helping out around an office they would give me a call. I said “sure, do it”, but its been days and they seem to have blown me off.

Idiots rule.



We applaud your good intentions, Court.  Don’t give up the fight.
