During the years 1980-87, German trio Die T-֬°dliche Doris (Deadly Doris) was a vital presence in the Berlin underground music and art scene. Early records on cult labels Zickzack and Atatak revealed Doris as a willfully obscure component of the neue deutsche welle, and their live shows melded their particular brand of raw post-punk cacophony with high-minded performance art sensibility. This overdue release, whose title translates to Nursery Rhymes for True Fools of the Grail, adds greatly to the canon as it is only the second CD by Die Todliche Doris, and contains 20 strange, rare and unpublished tracks from 1980-85. In addition to a wide cross-section of previously unreleased live material, it culls several unheard recordings from the Doris archive, and documents some unusual collaborations, switched identities and lo-fi early tracks such as Doris Intakt, Schuld-Struktur and the groups primitive take on Warm Leatherette. With photos, fully annotated liner notes and an attractive package designed by Richard Chartier, this CD will prove a valuable document to both Doris cognoscenti and neophytes alike. Limited edition of 750 copies. - Psychedelic Pig.
