"The Arts Connection, Music"

This was a radio review, and you can listen to it at http://azul.streamguys.com/wmfe/arts/music/5-6doris.wma

Text from WMFE website about review:

5/6/2005

The Arts Connection's Katie Ball is back with a review of the band, Doris Delay . So where did the name come from? The official word is that it's the name of a character from Tom Wolfe's book, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, though the band encourages any and all false leads. Lead singer/guitarist, Dominic Humerickhouse (formerly or The Harmonic La-dee-da's) joined forces with bassist/keyboardist Matthew Stokeley and drummer Nik Ritchie (both formerly of the band, Franco) to form Doris Delay. Vocalist Lauren Othon is also an official member of the group, though her responsibilities between two jobs and as a Rollins student make live performances with the band impossible. Listeners are fortunate that she is able to carve out enough time to add her pretty, jazz-influenced vocals to the band's recorded tracks. The three-song EP that is featured on The Arts Connection is available at the band's live performances. Check their website for show dates. The band can also be heard on a great new video game called Orbles. The game can be found at Nickelpig.com.

Bio

If you've ever been to Orlando, you've noticed that it is like a giant parking lot, and Doris Delay is like the solitary tree in the middle of the flat, boring, commercial wasteland of music. A tree that you can sit under and remember the days when a radio song didn't have to be about being pissed off at your parents. The roots of Doris Delay include a variety of quirky 90's indie rock bands such as Pavement, 60's pop acts such as The Animals, The Kinks and The Beatles, and current college radio superstars such as The Shins.
