|Devil Doll chronology|
In 1989, Mr. Doctor began the work on two compositions, The Black Holes of My Mind, a 45 minute composition incorporating esoteric quotations and subliminal messages; and Eliogabalus, a 60 minute composition inspired by Antonin Artaud's book "Heliogabalus: Or, The Crowned Anarchist".
In December Devil Doll entered Tivoli Studios with Jurij Toni to record a new album. Hurdy Gurdy's budget limitations forced Mr. Doctor to cut down the two former compositions, in order to include both on a single vinyl release.
Eliogabalus was released in 1990, the shortened version of The Black Holes of My Mind was renamed "Mr. Doctor" for this release, while "Eliogabalus" retained its name.
