CHAOS IN AN INKWELL (SO FAR SO SPITFIRE EXPLAINED)
It seemed too sad to leave these nuggets from the past to lay idle on a hard-drive and never see the light of day. There's the ones the got away: "Recovery Position',"Showgirls in the Mist" and "method acting"- giddy replicants pop buffoonery at its best but somehow lost between albums.
You can also find all four tracks recorded for the "So Far So Spitfire" e.p, which brought DOTR to the attention of John Peel, Mark Radcliffe, Marc "Lard" Riley and George Tyekiff, the man who signed us to east/west records in 1997.
There's also some of the other tracks that helped get us signed: "Mary Louise' in demo form and "Float on a Raft', recorded on an early jolly to the studio in 1995. Not forgetting the Replicants do Pluto Monkey joy that can found in a rare live take of "Joe Meek" from 2006.
These tracks have been found, dusted down and sonically repaired where possible and now we can present to you "Chaos in an Inkwell: So Far So Spitfire Explained" and remember when the goose is
strong and ready she will return....

- "D.O.T.R don’t so much plough their own furrow as invent
an entirely new kind of farm in which all the livestock speak Spanish
and wear funny hats. They are as the hip-hoppers say, on some other
shit, and never more so then here...dipsomaniac rumba (liqueur lagoon)
lo-fi waltz (pterodactyl) and at least one vitriolic pop classic
in Little Driver"
- "Much of the magic stems from frontman Paul Vickers, a loveable
gonk? de Vinci of lyrical invention whole stream of consciousness
teems with deft wordplay...Liqueur Lagoon is kooky lounge noir,
Vickers imagery taking in "a puppy spinning on a sander".
Better yet is Oh, Bumblebee, a hook-laden curio packing beefheartian
riffing and a jazzy ,waltz-time ending...Fangs is a wonky delight."
