about

The 1990s was a tumultuous decade. The World order we all thought was set in stone had become an illusion, and economies collapsed, horrendous new wars bubbled up and I just remember this feeling of continuous ominous uncertainty.
That uncertainty was epitomised by the “Millennium Bug”. The irony was inescapable.The World would not be terminated by an asteroid, an alien invasion or a virus from Hell but by a simple programming oversight in the computers we all relied upon.
I remember waiting with baited breath for planes to drop out of the sky as the clock chimed for the 12th time on the last day of 1999 - I’d had my Nostradamus phase like many others and...... nothing happened! We could all enter the 21st Century content that the World would be a calmer, happier, safer place. Oh joy of joys......
For The Dots, we began the 90s on a high with “The Crushed Velvet Apocalypse” and “The Maria Dimension” being embraced by a wider audience than we’d enjoyed before, but then we lost a precious friend and musician in Bob Pistoor to lung cancer.
That uncertainty had become part of our DNA.
We survived, we toured relentlessly, we recorded relentlessly as if to keep the big bad World away from our bubble .And still there was this nagging feeling that the bubble just might burst at midnight on the final night of the decade. I guess I overlooked the fact that they hit that moment far earlier in Australia and there were no devastating consequences. Even so, I turned into a pumpkin.
This collection is the third instalment of our “Decades” series and is dedicated with love to Bob.
