Yes, Dorothy was Max from one of thee great lost bands, Rema Rema. So here's a collection of everything that was captured on tape by said band.
It includes the beyond magnificent "Wheel in the Roses" e.p. on 4AD, the two live tracks they contributed to "The Men with Deadly Dreams" compilation(coming next here), and a live bootleg of a support slot at the Lyceum in 1979,containing a few tracks that I have no clue what they are called at all.
The band consisted of Gary Asquith (guitar/vocals), Marco Pirroni (guitar), Mick Allen (bass/vocals), Mark Cox (keyboards) and Max (drums). Their sole EP, Wheel In The Roses, featured one side of studio recordings and another of live material. Their songs ‘Fond Affections’ and ‘Rema-Rema’ were later covered by This Mortal Coil and Big Black respectively.
Rema-Rema split up shortly after the EP's release in April 1980. Pirroni later hit the big time with Adam And The Ants. Asquith, Allen and Cox formed the short-lived Mass with Danny Briottet. Asquith then moved on to Renegade Soundwave, while Cox and Allen stayed with 4AD as part of The Wolfgang Press.
Drummer Max, aka Dorothy,eventually joined Psychic TV full time.
