Dot Allison Colour Me

Release Date May 18, 1999

Catalog No SP459

After fronting the Scottish trip-hop act One Dove in the early 90s, Dot Allison ending the decade by kicking off her own solo career with the album Afterglow in 1999. Sub Pop served as her ambassador to the United States with a 7-inch featuring the first two songs on the LP, “Colour Me” and “Tomorrow Never Comes…” Trip-hop is still a major factor in her music, particularly with the dark rhythms of “Colour Me.” Her solo career would be a fruitful one, as she’s continued to release albums over the years. Along the way she’s worked with numerous notable collaborators including Massive Attack, My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields, Scott Walker, and The Libertines’ Pete Doherty – just to name a few.
