Saddest Movie Screen
Recorded by Bob Weston at CRC, Chicago January-February 1998; this is DOMR's second full-length release. Julian Mills- Vocals, Piano; Ben Miller- Stereo-Prepared Guitar; Sava Vuckovic- Bass Guitar; Dan Freed- Drum Kit. 'Featuring a rhythm section that plays like the Bad Seeds gone swamp rock, and the beautiful, ruined voice of Julian Mills, DOMR plot a murky course from menacing intimacy to unrelieved tension. Mills' hoarse, expressive vocals make Tom Waits sound like a choirboy' -The Wire 'DOMR's precision rhythm section retains a thuggish might, but lively ivory-tickling cabaret-influenced bone-rattling, and Mills' methadone groan iron out the brawn. Miller's chainsaw hum sputters almost subliminally in the shadows. The Saddest Movie Screen packs a classy, lumbering punch of impending doom' -CMJ New Music Report.
