Dolls?
« on: August 25, 2010, 10:34:35 AM »

Ever since I discovered the Dolls (from the DVD of the UK Roundhouse gig), they've been "on hold" and now they are rarely mentioned.
I've managed to see Amanda solo a couple of times now but was beginning to think the Dolls as a band was like the "elephant in the room" that no-one dares talk about.

But suddenly, her latest email news (HERE) announces "Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls" at the top of the page!

Is this the "big news" she promises for September 7th? God, I hope so......

She's frequently described like that. It's a turn of phrase that doesn't mean anything. It's only used because the Dolls are still a lot more famous than AFP in many circles and a lot of people who casually listened / listen to the dolls don't necessarily know Amanda by name. It's common for a lot of musicians to be described this way e.g. 'Tim Rogers of You Am I' or 'Peter Garett of Midnight Oil'. Doesn't mean there's going to be a reunion anytime soon.

Shucks....
Thought It might be more significant because it was from AFP herself.

Ah well, I live in hope!

There are a lot of new signups to the mailer via this contest I started, so I wanted to make damn sure that anyone who was checking out Amanda from a friend's recommendation made the correlation. I'm often surprised how many people like Amanda and The Dolls but don't know it's her...and, as Andy Pants said, it's not as though she isn't referred to that way sometimes.

Sorry to get your hopes up, but thanks for being on the list and hopefully staying tuned...  O0

Wait... Amanda's in the Dresden Dolls? Omg, I LOVE the Dresden Dolls!!
;)


It's kind of like how journalists sometimes say "Amanda Palmer, former Dresden Doll..."  because the band has been inactive for a couple years, but yet other journalists will write "The Dresden Dolls' Amanda Palmer..." it's semantics. may not have any meaning other than what it's literally there - a description to associate Amanda with the band.
