THE DRESDEN DOLLS return with No, Virginia, an eclectic mix of songs old and new that span the entire first five years of the band’s existence, giving a rare and enthralling insight into from whence this inimitable Brechtian punk duo came and to where they’re heading post Yes, Virginia, their last album.
Vocalist Amanda Palmer elaborates:
“Ingredients for a No, Virginia: 1) one b-side from our last record, 2) four unreleased recordings, 3) one old demo, 4) one 80s cover tune (of course) and 5) five brand-new recordings of older tunes we’ve never laid to tape. Sprinkle on some Sean Slade producer-action and viola…instant record!”
Full tracklisting is as follows:
3.Mouse and the Model
6.Lonesome Organist Rapes Page Turner
8.Pretty In Pink
As a compliment to No, Virginia, The Dresden Dolls are releasing a 350-page opus titled The Virginia Companion. An unconventional blend of songbook and scrapbook, it includes never-before-seen photos, notation and background stories for all of the songs from No, Virginia and Yes, Virginia, along with sheet music for all twenty-four tracks.
