    Frankie Revelations: Australian Tour A Go!

    Saturday, April 07, 2007 | 01:42 UTC | Posted by woj | Articles,Touring

    Benjamin Law writes in to tell us that he recently had the honor of interviewing Tori for Frankie, an Australian magazine at which he is a senior writer. The full interview will be, of course, published in a forthcoming issue, sometime before Tori’s Australian tour. Yes, you heard that right. Australian tour. During the interview, she confirmed that the ADP world tour would be taking her back Down Under:

    I’m coming in September. We’re doing Australia, don’t you worry, posse’s coming to Australia. And the show starts [with] four different girls. Well, there’s four different starts, so it depends on what show you go to. And then after a fashion [swap], then Tori comes out.

    Benjamin was also kind enough to provide us with an excerpt from the interview which takes a novel approach: the questions are lyrics from her previous work.

    Is it sweet, your sting?

    Not always. I’d like to tell you that it was. If I’m able to step into a compassionate place, then it can be sweet. However, if you cross the line — and that might have to do with my daughter — then you know what? I’m going to rip your arm off. And I won’t even add salt to it. You’re going to lose an appendage. If somebody starts winding up your child, then I just say, “Enough. Deal with the big girls. You wanna play that? You play with momma. I’ll play with you all fucking day, motherfucker.” That’s how I am, as a mother. Ferocious.

    Australian fans, keep your eyes on newsstands between now and September!

    New Tori Article At MTV.com

    Thursday, April 05, 2007 | 21:59 UTC | Posted by Beth | Articles

    “The way to really combat the right wing is to not be subservient to them on any level, particularly when it comes to ideology,” she continued. “Therefore, you better offer up another ideology that can combat theirs, and as a preacher’s daughter, I understand their ideology inside and out. Frankly, they’ve all hijacked Jesus and his message. I’m sorry, but ‘Love thy neighbor as yourself’ is nowhere to be found, especially in our current regime, who, in the name of God, is sending our young men and women to die over there [in the Middle East].” — Tori Amos

    Toni and Fabz let us know that MTV.com has a new article this morning about Tori and American Doll Posse. This is one of Tori’s most politics-heavy interviews to date. (Does anyone else hear Tori’s “Sweet Dreams” in their head while reading this, or is it just me?)

    Mojo Magazine Article (May, 2007)

    Friday, March 30, 2007 | 19:35 UTC | Posted by Violet | Articles

    “Because mythology is no longer taught, you get watered-down versions of the Greek goddesses in pop stars. Hollywood made a good job of creating icons in the ’30s and ’40s, they understood a story. Now, give ‘em a haircut and some clothes and they think they can pull off Aphrodite.” -Tori Amos

    There’s a Q&A with Tori in the upcoming (#162, May 2007) issue of Mojo Magazine. According to the Mojo website, it’s supposed to hit newsstands on April 4th, but some stores may put it out early. We don’t have much info on it right now, but if anyone can transcribe or let us know more about it, we’ll add it here. The interview is on page 30 and Tori talks about Greek goddesses, sports cars, and yet another interviewer uses the horrid “k” word. [ Update. ]

    Thanks to Fabz for sending this in; cheers to Adam for sending in a transctiption, Emma and Andy for sending in a scan and RaSpBeRrY◊SLUT from The Afterglow for posting scans and a transcription.

    Meet Tori's Posse

    Wednesday, March 28, 2007 | 04:52 UTC | Posted by Violet | Articles,Releases

    Head over to SameSame.com.au to get just a little chummier with the girls in Tori’s posse, thanks to Christian Taylor. Oooh, lots of new quotes and interesting tidbits!

    While it still remains unconfirmed by the record company, the folks at SameSame.com.au feel certain that Tori will be touring Oz this year. We have a feeling she will, too.

    Thanks for a great article, Christian!

    The Posse ... Revealed!

    Wednesday, March 21, 2007 | 18:09 UTC | Posted by woj | Articles,Releases

    The April 2, 2007 of US Weekly has a piece revealing the five characters that Tori developed for American Doll Posse. They are named Santa, Clyde, Isabelle, Tori, and Pip. In the brief accompanying article, Tori talks a little about how the five women’s stories factor into the album as a whole. (You know the routine by now: click on the thumbnail for a larger image.)

    The text reads:

    TORI’S DISGUISES

    Tori Amos is into role-playing. For American Doll Posse, her first album in more than to two years, due on May 1, the piano-playing alt-rocker, 43, developed five female characters (insert) around the record’s 20 tracks. “The album is a collection of stories,” Amos (who lives in Cornwall, England, with husband Mark Hawley and daughter Natashya, 6), tells Us. “Each story is a chapter from one of the women.”

    ALL IN THE FAMILY – Hawley, a sound engineer, worked on the album too. “There are moments when it can be really sexy and moments when you really disagree,” Amos tells Us of working with him. “That can be tricky when you go back to the same room ant the end of a long day!”

    Thanks to Beebles for the scan and to WinterWitch and Fabz for stirring me from my workday torpor and getting my attention back to the work that matters!

    Paul Tingen Talks To Tori

    Monday, March 12, 2007 | 21:39 UTC | Posted by Violet | Articles

    Musician and author Paul Tingen has the first part of an exclusive interview with Tori up on his website. It contains a new glam photo of Tori plus lots of interesting conversation.

    We have a special request of Toriphiles on Paul’s behalf: if you want to share this article with friends, please link to Paul’s website rather than posting the full text of his article on your sites and blogs. Paul worked many days on this and one reason Tori granted him this exclusive interview — in which she speaks about ADP for the first time in any detail — was to support Paul’s website and work. We realise our saying this may not have any effect, but you know … if’n you enjoy the article and appreciate it being offered for free, doesn’t hurt to show the love. Just sayin’.

    Liz Smith Dishes About The Posse

    Saturday, March 10, 2007 | 15:30 UTC | Posted by woj | Articles

    The edition of Liz Smith’s column published in the, as I understand it, March 9th edition of the Star-Ledger included this little blurb:

    Fans of singer Tori Amos—emotionally intense cult star deluxe—can expect a new album coming in April, titled “American Doll Posse.” And Tori has a real doll posse working with her on this disc—four well-known female musicians. One is brunette, two are blonde and there’s a redhead too. Amos won’t give out the names, but insists they are “trailblazers, representing the many facets of a woman.”

    The erroneous release date for the album aside, this is quite intriguing and the first we’ve heard about potential collaboration on this record. Are these fellow songwriters? Or just session musicians? Or perhaps personas that she is assuming for some of the songs?

    I have not been able to find an on-line copy of the article, despite the fact that Smith’s column is syndicated to many newspapers, but jump the cut to see a scan of the article, thanks to bonnie77. Thanks also to Fabz for alerting us to this tidbit as well!

    Los Angeles Times (February 22, 2007)

    Saturday, February 24, 2007 | 18:19 UTC | Posted by woj | Articles

    While most of the press about American Doll Posse so far has understandably focused on the facts—new album on May 1st, world tour starting May 28th, blah blah blah—the Los Angeles Times (registration required) has decided to turns its eye towards the promotional photograph, which they credit to Blaise Reutersward (consistent with the Swedish newspaper article that reported that he was working with Tori on her next album’s cover art), and reaction to it across the Internet.
