She could regenerate, but he couldn’t even evolve…

Dawktor Who is the leading single from the forthcoming YVE long player ‘Dismembered Tales…’


Exterminate, regenerate the phenotype.
Exterminate, regenerate the phenotype
The phenotype regenerates exterminates…

You’re more Davro than Davros;
More sinner than Simonyi.
More Anselm than Einsten;
More Scientism, than Scientist…

Devolved from Biologist
To bathetic, post-colonisticist.
Obsessed with faith,
You’re the enemy of reason,
But the ’Selfish Gene’ is fucking genius…

The phenotype regenerates and exterminates
The phenotype regenerates and exterminates
More Davro than Davros;
You’re more sinister than Simonyi;
More Anselm the Einsten;
More Iraneus than my Romana…
Neanderthal on Twitter…

Exterminate, regenerate the phenotype
The Phenotype regenerates and exterminates…

Influenced by the likes of Robert Wyatt, Current 93, Scott Walker, Miles Davis, Shabazz Palaces, Nick Cave, Autechre, Matana Roberts, Bjork and Iannis Xenakis - but sounding little like them, bass and vocals merge with flute, trombone, accordion, digital horn and electronics. ... more
