Originally known as Belladonna, this San Franciscan quintet changed its name but not its homage to classic British pop and psychedelic rock. In 1995, Dora Flood released an EP on American Standard Recordings entitled 1301. The group continued performing around San Francisco and the Pacific Coast. In 1999, the band released its first full-length effort, Lost on Earth, on Double Play. Touring in support of the record had Dora Flood playing in Europe, the continental United States, and Canada, despite the fact their tour manager ended up in jail. Named after the character in John Steinbeck's Cannery Row novel, the band received widespread acclaim for Walk a Light Year Mile in 2000, also on Double Play. Sharing the stage with various artists such as Mazzy Star, Dora Flood has also performed at the North by Northwest Festival. In 2002, the group enhanced its vision and creativity with a sprawling-yet-lovable Welcome, an album with influences from the Beatles and the Stone Roses to even Velvet Crush. The fuzzed-out Highlands followed in 2004 with We Live Now landing three years later. ~ Jason MacNeilPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
