releases March 1, 2024
In their early days, Dolium caused quite a buzz on the UK underground music scene; first in 1999/2000 with their sonic assault on the city of Sheffield - and then some years later, when their 2004 DIY'd debut single (and the label’s first ever release under the name of Parlour 9) quickly caught the attention of BBC radio legend, John Peel.
The rest, as they say, is history...
Take the journey and discover the roots of Sister 9 with this stunning set, which includes the band’s entire discography (all newly remastered by Rhys Bloodjoy in the S9 Studio), plus many unheard recordings, including their long-lost, unreleased third album, Brother Transistor.
The story is presented in a striking full colour booklet, featuring art and photography, as well as extensive sleeve notes by the band and their management, plus one or two surprises — yet to be announced!
"Scratchy urgent new wave whiplash energy... They've been one of England's best kept secrets for far too long" - ORGANZINE
“A record that is at once gloriously cheap and mesmerising in its twists of moods and pace... Full of hooks and tunes, it's a refreshing sound" - THE INDEPENDENT (4/5 STARS)
"A mighty half-hour that deserves a cult following” - NEW NOISE
"A screaming, raging, frighteningly fierce assault of punk rock. Bring on the world of The Black Stripes” - BBC MANCHESTER
