    News: AnOther Magazine Article (Autumn/Winter 2007)

    Posted by woj on Tuesday, November 27, 2007 | Articles

    Jay caught this short article in the 13th issue (Autumn/Winter 2007) of the UK publication AnOther Magazine that features a photograph of Tori as Isabel (or maybe Santa?) wearing a Viktor & Rolf dress. Much of the issue can be viewed online but, for whatever reason, this particular article does not appear to be on their website. Fortunately, Jay provided a scan of the article, which is transcribed below, and a close-up of the photograph:

    If you are so inclined, you can order this issue from the publisher.

    Thanks to Jay for spotting this!


    Tori Amos
    Musician Explores her Alter Egos

    Dress by Viktor & Rolf

    “My songs are not jus detached musical poems; they’re sonic installation. The music isn’t from just one voice or personality. The girl group I’ve created — Santa, Clyde, Isabel, Tori and Pip — are my alter egos, different facets of myself. As a minister’s daughter, I was brought up with so much religion, and at a certain point I thought, ‘Wait a minute, where are the women?’ They’re either virgin mothers or prostitutes. So, I went back to Greek mythological for inspiration, to get away from those diluted stereotypes. I write separate blogs for each of the girls. They go out every week like a serial, so the girls have taken on a life of their own. When I go on stage, I’ll dress differently as if I’m each one of them — it will be a big production. It’s really spurring me on — the girls are educating me. Everyone has alter egos inside them. They’re lying dormant in you now.”

    Born Myra Ellen Amos in North Carolina, Tori Amos and her many eccentricities have on occasion typecast the songwriter as the fairy queen of kook. But the Cornflake Girl, with an elite music scholarship who rebelled against her east coast training and headed to the rock studios of LA, has proved that there’s some iron will in this preacher’s daughter. With lyrics that double up as a window into her psyche, Tori has always liked to think big with her conceptual albums, and her recording process is no exception. The 350-year-old barn in Cornwall that now houses a dream NASA-style studio, was where she brought to life her ninth record America Girl Posse [sic]. Something of a feminist rallying cry, it is a showcase for not one, but five of her alter egos. “I’m really just an onlooker now,” she says. “i have absolutely no idea what they’re going to do next.”
