1 December.02 Dot working on film score
Dot is working on or will soon be working on a film score with British Director Simon De Selva. He's acted in"The son of the pink panther" (1993) and in tv-movie "Cleopatra" (1999). This is the first movie he's directing, and it's called "LD 50" (2002).

L.D. 50 is a medical term used by pharmacologists to measure how toxic a substance is. It stands for Lethal Dosage 50, which represents how much of a chemical it takes to kill fifty out of a hundred test subjects.

It's being filmed right now. It will be a horror movie. You can find more info about it in INMB.com

Thanks to Sergi MarÕ for addtional info.

31 August.02 Dot on new Massive Attack Album?
Hi, 3-D from Massive Attack has once again mentioned Dot Allison on the message board from the official Massive Attack website. The fourth album is nearly finished, but they'll start recording soon for a fifth album, and mentions that he has invited Dot Allison to come to the studio in October. [Ed: if you recall Dot apparently recorded some tracks with them for their upcoming album but those tracks will not appear on the album, see story somewhere below for more details]

From Massive Attack website, Thanks to Senne Soli

31 August.02 Vote for 'Strun Out'
For the fans from Belgium who read the Humo magazine ; at http://www.humo.be/ u can now vote for Dot Allison her "Strung Out" single in their singles chart.

Thanks to Senne Soli

31 August.02 Dot at Pukelpop
Dot's Pukkelpop performance
We're Only Science ( without the last words the album version has )
Morning Sun ( instrumental ) ( not as long as the version from Benicasim though )
You Can Be Replaced
Strung Out
White Love

She had a really cool and professionail air to her and looked away several times during performing, but also encouraged the crowd to clap their hands during "Substance" and especially "We're Only Science". After each song she gave the audience a polite thank you and some small talk. She introduced "Mo'Pop" before starting the song and anounced the last song before ending.

Mini review and report by Senne Soli

16 August.02 Listen to Dot Live
Dot Allison played the Benicasim festival in Spain a few days ago. You can listen or watch the video. She comes on after about 10 minutes, so be patient. Also it takes a while for it to load since the files are so big.

31 August.02 The Word from Dot
Dot will be touring the US in October. This comes straight from her. A fan on my Dot mailing list spoke will her at one of her recent UK gigs. 'We are science' is due out in the US in September on Beggars Banquet records.

Thanks to Matthew Williams

31 August.02 Current Setlist
Dot played the RemiXFM Night at Cargo in London, August 15th. Here is the setlist. This is also the setlist for the Benicasim festival. Check out these fanstastic live pictures by Marc Van Katwijk

We're only science
Morning Sun (instrumental, very long version with Dot noodling away on her guitar)
You can be replaced
Strung Out
Mo' Pop (speedy trash version)
White Love

Thanks to Matthew Williams

Friday Aug 23 Reading Festival (Boutique Stage)
saturday Aug 24 Leeds Festival (Boutique Stage)

3 August.02 Dot videos
You can watch 3 Dot videos over at her official site

3 August.02 Dot plays RemiXFM night
Dot wil play RemiXFM Night on 15th August - London - Cargo. Highlights from the night will be aired on the Remix on 16th August on XFM. Courtesy of Mantra Recordings

3 August.02 Dot interview
Dot has done an Interview on AVdeck Mantra Recordings for more details. I can't get the thing to play.

16 July.02 Dot plays Pukelpop
Apparently Dot weill be playing at Pukkelpop Festival on Aug 22, 2002. According to the official Pukkelpop site she's not listed that i can see. The first site seems official too, so I'm not sure what's up

Thanks to Senne

14 July.02 Dot gets 'Stung out'
Here are the details of of Dot's new single, 'Strung out' which is due August 5

strungout 1 strungout 2
Mantra MNT 74CD
Strung Out - Single Mix
Stolen Kisses
Sweet Surrender

Mantra MNT 74CD2
Strung Out
We're only Science (Slam Remix)
I Think I Love You (Tenniswood Remix)

Mantra MNT 74T
Strung Out
Strung Out (Radioactive Man Remix)
WeÍre Only Science (Slam Remix)

UPDATE! CD2 and the 12" are identical, it appears as though the label on the 12" is incorrect
the 12' sleeve says I Think I Love You (Radioactive Man remix), and the record label says Stolen Kisses! It's actually the Tenniswood/Radioactive Man remix of I Think I Love You, which means the 12inch is exactly same as CD2 [Thanks to Matt Williams for this info]

So apparently if you missed the ltd UK CD or didn't pick the Ltd French or Austrlain CD with bonus tracks, you will still get to hear to the Slam mix of 'We are Science'

31 May.02 Dot not on Massive Attack's forthcoming album / film score?
3-D ( Robert Del Naja ) from Massive Attack posted on the Massive Attack website "that the tracks they did (with Dot) won't be used on the album, but that Dot Allison might incorporate a song into a score she is working on" ( guess this means she will be doing a soundtrack soon ). 3-D also said that they will work again in the future without any doubt.

Thanks to Senne

28 June.02 New single
Apparently the next single will be "Strung Out" and will contain a Massive Attack remix. it will be released as 2 cd singles apparently and is due out on August 5th.

Thanks to Ken KP

30 May.02 Limited version of 'We are Science'
There is a limited version of the UK CD available in the first pressing. It contains remixes by Felix Da Housecat (Substance) and Slam (We're Only Science). The only way to tell the difference is that the actual disc it self has the cat. no. of mntcde1028. the artwork catalogue number is the same. I've only heard of one person getting this CD, so it must be very rare. amazon.com, amazon.co.uk, cdnow.com and ab-cd.com have a version of this ltd cd but it's a french CD. In this case, it does actually list the bonus tracks on the back cover, it's also ltd. the Japan version of the CD comes out on July 2. The Australia CD also has the bonus tracks. If anyone has a copy of the ltd UK version for sale please let me know.

18 May.02 Preview the new album
For you listening pleasure, get a sneak preview of 3 tracks from Dot's new album, 'We are Science.' It will be in stores on May 20 in the UK and in the Fall in the US. You will of course need RealAudio
