DORIS ALLOY - NATTERCAN (SUBCD 006) 1999.

This was the self-released follow-up to the debut 1998 mini-album DORIS ALLOY.
BETTER, STRONGER, FASTER is the opener and the highlight of the disc. This is a combination of the themes from The Six Million Dollar Man and Charlie's Angels recorded digitally and mixed by Richard Marc'Angelo.
The quality of the recordings on the rest of the disc varies. APOPTOTIC and SHE WAS RADIOACTIVE are 4-track recordings, the latter featuring a sample of the voice of Quentin Crisp saying 'She Was Radioactive With Belief In Herself'.
SAMIZDAT is an electronic strings mood piece with the synth bubbling over the top. SOMETHING FUTURISTIC is a well constructed 8-track 12 minute epic that is ruined by the poor mixing.
The disc closes with NATTERCAN which is the strangest track on this CD. Words fail me.
There is something unique about the DORIS ALLOY sound, and interesting if far from perfect. An organised mess.

Not as well executed as the debut or the collaboration in '98 between DORIS ALLOY and DAVE BALL on the Electroclashic LONDON BROIL AND POTATOES.

Better recordings followed with METAL FOR ROBOTS, SEX SOMEWHERE WITH SOMEONE I DON'T KNOW and WHAT YOU THINK YOU THINK IS REAL in 2000/2001 before DORIS ALLOY stopped recording.
