On the day that Florian Schnider proved the advantages of being an actual android rather than a pretend one, and died. Here's something that scientists are bending over backwards,in some cases literally, to try and recreate a woman who doesn't want to do anything but look pretty and be a willing and uncomplaining sexual partner.
Most of you electro-snobs feel a little bit of sick projecting mouthwards when you think of women in Electronic music,and automatically think it must be 'crap'.......mostly, you are right,god knows there enough shite males doing the same thing, but worse, they certainly ain't pretty.
This Doris outing from 1983 sounds very much like those proto-EBM Belgians, Absolute Body Control as far as I can hear,but without those awful Belgian blokey vocals,and sixth form lyrics.
Ladies,have far less ego-problems, and have the wise attribute shared with the 'Stepford Wives'...the ability to shut up and let the machines play.
The fact that Doris seems to have the ability to get up the noses of Electro-purists is a hearty recommendation to these ears.
Who do I prefer?...Absolute Body Control or Doris Norton?......as far as I can hear Doris Norton Is Absolute Body Control without Dirk, which rhymes with Burk, and,as I understand, is the flemish equivalent of Doris......the answer is they are both crap.
I think earlier in the blog I said that ABC......no not the Martin Fry led eighties hit machine, the Belgian EBM power duo......yes, I said they were rather good. I'm as changeable as the weather.
Don't forget I like Duran Duran(1st album only mind!) and A Flock of Seagulls.
Don't worry, I'll get around to Pauline Oliveros,and other avant garde shite(yawn!) in a while.....oh yeah,(note some mild excitment?) there's the BBC Radiophonic Workshop too,now that's proper 'Good' innit?
