THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS NEWSLETTER DECEMBER 2011
No doubt about it , Europe felt like a wounded continent as we sped along the highways ,watched karaoke on the ferries and played for our suppers on the last tour. However , there was plenty of elation too as the band just felt so damn good onstage night after night. Still it all feels like a voyage of discovery ,and after 30 years that’s golden.
Keep your eyes peeled as we may well be in your neighborhood soon.
Having said that, now is the time for recording and the first notes have been plucked or prodded in anger or joy for the next Pink Dots’ album which we guess will be there in late 2012.
2012 – FEAR NOT MY LOVELIES
LPDs plan a small tour which we hope will take in Italy , Switzerland and South Germany in April. Russia is also on the calendar for the Fall.
For a fully fledged LPDs tour of the USA and Canada ,the target is Spring 2013.
However EK and The Silverman may well make an appearance as part of a package with the wonderful Orbit Service and Dead Voices on Air in denver and perhaps a couple of other cities in May 2012.

Firstly ,something seriously ambitious …
EDWARD KA-SPEL – A Pleasure Cruise through 9 Dimensions
Beta-Lactam Ring release this new EK salvo which lives up to it’s name in almost every possible format (even 8-track cartridge). However , pride of place goes to the vinyl edition with an astonishing handmade gimmix cover. It is hyper-limited and costs 45 euros (plus postage) as a pre-order from us.It’s slated for mid-December
but considering the ambition of the package , it’s best to count on an early New year release.

If you are in a real hurry, your package can be sent by a service of your choosing such as UPS, FedEx, Overnight or Priority Mail. It is very important that you discuss delivery options and preferences with us at the time you place your order so that we can add the appropriate shipping fees to your total.
