I, Doris: Just Some Doris – single of the week

100% guaranteed totally unbiased review by Tony (Doris) Rounce.

I had an Aunt Doris when I was much younger than I am today.  She was a nice woman, always happy and smiley and very musical.

I feel sure she would have approved of our very own I, Doris, with whom she shares all those traits.

Since joining forces just over a year ago, Doris, Doris, Doris and Doris have quickly grown from being four fab friends having fun, to a serious contender for Toppermost Of The Poppermost.  They’re still growing as a band, but they’re getting there faster than most. And as 2019 hurtles to its conclusion, they are gracing us with an early Christmas present in the shape of their second splendid single, following the late spring release of ‘The Girl From Clapham’.

If you have seen I, Doris live, you will know the delightfully catchy ‘Just Some Doris’ as the opening number of their set. I’m pleased to say that the studio recording retains all the simple charm of the song’s live performances. As winsome and lovable as the Dorises are themselves, and a perfect illustration of what the undisputed Mistresses Of Mummycore are all about, you’ll be clapping and singing along with it before you get to the second chorus.

Pure ‘now’ for pop people, it’s a 21st century tune with a 20th century sound and, believe me, that’s a recommendation in every respect.  If parts of the tune are naggingly familiar to you, you’ll have a lot of fun working out where they might have borrowed them from (consciously or otherwise).  I think I know, but if I told you I might have to kill you…

They’ve conquered the kitchen, they’ve conquered the stage, they’ve conquered the studio and if they haven’t done so already, they are about to conquer your hearts.  Just some Dorises, but not just any old Dorises.  These Dorises are a little bit special, and if ‘Just Some Doris’ doesn’t bring a little sunshine to your December and make you fall completely and totally in love with them, I hope all the needles fall off your Christmas tree this week…

Mama weer all Doris now!

Nadia Javed: I Hate Boris – single of the week

Early in the week to be declaring a single the single of the week? Maybe, but this is no ordinary week, and this is no ordinary single. Tory austerity has hurt far too many of us, for far too long, and on Thursday we’ve got the chance to end austerity, and kick Boris Johnson the fuck out of Number 10. Here’s Nadia ‘The Tuts’ Javed’s debut solo single saying what we’re all thinking: I HATE BORIS. Nadia says:

The song is about how much I hate Boris Johnson (obviously), delving into some of the racist things he’s said such as calling Muslims “letterboxes” and “bankrobbers” but also how as a British asian I’m disgusted by brown tories such as Sajid Javid and Priti Patel and how they definitely do not represent me.
