King Adora: Rock the BulimicDiS called them "Builders in drag!" not so long ago. Then they got dropped and disappeared. Surely it wasn't our fault? Anyway, the 'dora are double-A back!
Birmingham's finest glam ressurectors return with a limited edition double A-side single 'Born to Lose' and 'Kamikaze'. This is the band's first new material from their second album due in October.
According to Maxi's diary-entry on their website, he "changed the title from 'Bulimic' to 'Born to Lose'" because he "felt the song was about more than just Bulimia, but all types of self control, self obsession and addiction - it also gathered inspiration from Plath's "The Bell Jar" and that continual female struggle in patriarchal hell."
He continues to talk about recent happenin's: "The last year or so has been a nightmare for us as a band. What with parting from Mercury, and having to constantly battle against an ever fickle industry, add in a cocktail of personal problems, over indulgence in all things bad and a constant battle against all the odds - ended up with me wondering if we were going to make it."
