Biography
Rifle through the file of a life and you'll find the places, the names, the comings and goings at strange hours--the data and details that chart one's all-too-brief arc from A-Z. But read between the lines and you'll unearth much more: a veiled world of secrets and silences, loves and losses, laughter and loathing...and just maybe a map of the beating human heart.

A look inside songwriter Peter Riley's dossier would reveal half a life kicking at the pop fringes: first as the teenage frontman for underground electropop act JOY MACHINE, all but unknown until their Lazarus-like resurrection online; as the architect of SAINTFACE, a guitar-driven five-piece that managed to genuflect to Britpop and Tin Pan Alley in equal measure; and finally as the compiler of THE DOSSIER, a duo that effectively marries the terse electronic pulse of the former with the swooping pop theatrics of the latter.

Aided and abetted by Saintface lieutenant and boyhood brother-in-arms Michael Parkin, THE DOSSIER fleshes out the file with a potent mix of galloping electronics and throbbing basslines, swooning digital soundscapes and stomping glam confections, always with a lyrical eye on the foibles and follies of the subject just out of arm's reach. With forthcoming debut STRANGE ARRANGEMENTS the agenda is clear: to retrace the steps, collect the clues, assemble the lives and to close the case...

THE DOSSIER.
