If you bought the "Loser Edition" of Doldrums' recent album 'The Air Conditioned Nightmare', you'll have been treated to a bonus 7" with a non-album bonus track.
That song was called IDONTWANNABEDELETED – and really, who does want to be deleted? – and is a total mash-up of ideas. Part-Disclosure-ish pop, part-bassline house, part-Public Image Limited, it's a pretty post-modern collage and its lyrics reflect it (I don't wanna fight in the loudness war! are not words we really imagined appearing in a pop song).
The female vocals come from none other than Samantha Urbani.
