Sirens - It Really Doesn't Matter (1980)

b/w Rock 'N' Roll Disaster

Great New Wave from Mick Dorey (Voc Keyboards)

This is his 2nd of 3, 45's from this era that are worth looking for.

The other 2 are

Mick Dorey & The Sirens - Paranoid Station / Jacqueline Foster - Illegal Records (1979)

Toltex 9 - Coal Fires & semaphores / Desmond Stoat - EMI (1982)

He had help on this 45 from
David Eppel
Hank Young (bass & Falling out of the window)
Paul Hammond (drums)
Ian Hartnell (keyboard & co-credit for writing the A Side)

He has also had the below guitarists helping at time or another
Nick Calvert
Terry Wapram (Guitar)

It Really doesn't Matter was produced By Jean-Jacques Burnel - I guess, making this of interest to Stranglers fans

Useless Fact - Apparently Mick sung backing vocals On Blondie's "Eat To The Beat" LP (not that he's credited on the sleeve)

Mick is still going strong as 1 part of a trio called Kamakura

  1. Wow! Thanks for this. Mick (Dorey) is blown away as he hasn't got a copy, and hasn't heard it in an age.

  2. You're welcome Nick - is there any info (memories) Mick would like to add to the post.
