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.

THAT WHICH IS IMMINENT

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.

EDWARD KA-SPEL -A Pleasure Cruise through 9 Dimensions….ltd CD version- 20 euros (plus postage)

Other formats? Available from www.blrrecords.com

EDWARD KA-SPEL- The Patriot / last man Standing 7″ single (vinyl)

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.

Legendary Pink Dots heading for the West Coast

Monday, November 15th, 2010

The The Legendary Pink Dots head to the West coast now for the final leg of what has been a very exciting tour so far… I mean, the last couple of weeks have been insane! Halloween with the Dresden Dolls, and live in-studio performance at WFMU both come to mind… I wonder what madness is in store for the West Coast?

Unlike most acts of their vintage, The Legendary Pink Dots look forward. After more than 25 years, they continue to make compelling new music that is demanded by fans and maintains the high level of quality that set their careers in motion. Led by singer/songwriter Edward Ka-Spel and keyboardist/songwriter Phil “Silverman” Knight, the band continues to create their singular brand of modern psychedelia. Edward Ka-Spel’s lyrics breathe with a sagacity and cleverness only found in rock’s greatest writers. Their new album “Seconds Late For The Brighton Line” finds the band in familiar territory; pulsing Krautrock, dark and sinister pop and epic post-industrial soundscapes. The album invites the listener to put on head phones, close their eyes and embark on a technicolor journey. Stand out tracks include the epic electronic groove of “Russian Roulette”, the pretty naivete of “Someday” and the chilling goth-pop of “Endless Time.” The recent departure of long-time band members Niels Van Hoorn & Martijn De Kleer has left The Legendary Pink Dots to operate as a quartet. The new crew will embark on an extensive North American tour this Fall that celebrates the band’s 30th Anniversary.

Press:

Pitchfork says: “…they traffic in horror and gothic darkness, but they do it with elegance, more slowly crescendoing George Romero dread than Wes Craven splatterfest.”

Arthur Magazine says: “It’s ominous, sinister pop… crushed velvet, light rain, spooky carnivals…”

SPIN Magazine says: “Fancy a break from the norm? These U.K. psychedelic rockers mix LSD whimsy & industrial gloom.

Time Out New York says: “…they’ve earned the legendary by now”

LA Weekly says: “The ‘Pink Dots are the latest, greatest thing – always will be – ‘cause one can never pinpoint exactly what they’re on about but can suffer measureless revelation upon hearing it.”

Seattle Weekly Says: “Softly psychedelic like a dreamer with blurry vision, and manically poppy as in the old days of the Flaming Lips.”

Popmatters Says: Pop Matters says: “New listeners beware; the intellectual stimulator of Dots records is addictive.”

Randall Frazier / Helmet Room Recordings switching things up at The Walnut Room

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

After being a sound engineer at the Walnut Room for nearly five years and the head engineer for the last year, Randall Frazier jumped into the talent buyer seat last month. While he has plans to bring in different types of acts than the room has seen in the past, he’ll also be launching a Walnut Room label, as well as using the music room as a recording studio on days when there aren’t shows.

Frazier says he’s scaling back the shows a bit and plans to book shows Thursdays through Saturdays. So on the off-days, Frazier wants to turn the room into a recording studio, which would essentially involve bringing some more microphones and pre-amps and building some sound isolation booths that could be put or taken down very quickly on the stage.

While a lot of bands have taken advantage of recording live shows in the Walnut Room, one of the best sounding venues in town, Frazier plans to take it one step further with the Walnut Room Records, which will digitally distribute live recordings. Through Helmet Room Recordings, he’s been working with IRIS, a digital distribution company that has 450 retailers over 85 countries.

What this means for bands is that they can have their shows recorded and mastered by Frazier and then release it on the Walnut Room imprint. The band would split the digital royalties, but they can take home a finalized master and manufacture their own CDs.

“They just give me exclusive rights to distribute it through the digital services,” he says. “I think it’s a great idea because it’s going to show anyone who hasn’t ever been to the Walnut Room may not to realize how superior that sound system is.

“These recordings coming out all over the place are going to kind of showcase the room for what it’s really meant for,” he continues. “And at the same time, it’s also going to promote Denver bands and shows that are happening in Denver mostly on a local level. I’m recording national people, as well, if they want, but a majority of the shows are local. It’s going to be a ton of live local music being promoted through the whole world.”

The first Walnut Room Records release is from the Flashbulb Fires, a track named “The Whale,” which was taken from a stereo soundboard mix and then mastered.

Listen to that track at Westword.com

In terms of booking the room itself, Frazier says he wants to focus more on an audiophile type of audience. With that in mind, he’s begun reaching out to his contacts from around the world that he’s made through his Helmet Room label and his indie promotions firm Massive Music America, asking folks at labels like ROIR and Ohm Resistance to look him up if they have a band coming though.

A band like, say, Expo 70, the Beta-lactam Ring psychedelic outfit who’s slated to play at the Walnut Room on Wednesday, October 27. “If you’re going to go see Expo 70, that’s the place to go see it,” he says. “If you really want to feel that music, the Walnut Room is the place.”

Frazier, who recently mastered a new Legendary Pink Dots album, says he working on bringing in that band’s frontman Edward Ka-Spel to the Walnut Room this spring.

Legendary Pink Dots – Seconds Late For The Brighton Line

Monday, September 13th, 2010

Unlike most acts of their vintage, The Legendary Pink Dots look forward. After more than 25 years, they continue to make compelling new music that is demanded by fans and maintains the high level of quality that set their careers in motion. Led by singer/songwriter Edward Ka-Spel and keyboardist/songwriter Phil “Silverman” Knight, the band continues to create their singular brand of modern psychedelia. Edward Ka-Spel’s lyrics breathe with a sagacity and cleverness only found in rock’s greatest writers. Their new album “Seconds Late For The Brighton Line” finds the band in familiar territory; pulsing Krautrock, dark and sinister pop and epic post-industrial soundscapes. The album invites the listener to put on head phones, close their eyes and embark on a technicolor journey. Stand out tracks include the epic electronic groove of “Russian Roulette”, the pretty naivete of “Someday” and the chilling goth-pop of “Endless Time.” The recent departure of long-time band members Niels Van Hoorn & Martijn De Kleer has left The Legendary Pink Dots to operate as a quartet. The new crew will embark on an extensive North American tour this Fall that celebrates the band’s 30th Anniversary.

Album Credits

All keyboards, synths and devices, both ancient and modern,were used and misused, processed and tweaked, by Edward Ka-Spel and the Silverman at Studio’s Lent and Limburgia.

From lyrics strewn across every room surface,written on printing paper, backs of envelopes and train tickets, Edward added his voice. On “Someday”, Silverman also sang.

Stringed things were played by Erik Drost, who for these sessions used acoustic, electric, bass and hawaiian guitars.

As always, Raymond Steeg’s mixing and production provided the sound answers that each track needed.

Press:

Pitchfork says: “…they traffic in horror and gothic darkness, but they do it with elegance, more slowly crescendoing George Romero dread than Wes Craven splatterfest.”

Arthur Magazine says: “It’s ominous, sinister pop… crushed velvet, light rain, spooky carnivals…”

SPIN Magazine says: “Fancy a break from the norm? These U.K. psychedelic rockers mix LSD whimsy & industrial gloom.

Time Out New York says: “…they’ve earned the legendary by now”

LA Weekly says: “The ‘Pink Dots are the latest, greatest thing – always will be – ‘cause one can never pinpoint exactly what they’re on about but can suffer measureless revelation upon hearing it.”

Seattle Weekly Says: “Softly psychedelic like a dreamer with blurry vision, and manically poppy as in the old days of the Flaming Lips.”

Popmatters Says: Pop Matters says: “New listeners beware; the intellectual stimulator of Dots records is addictive.”

THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS DECEMBER 2009 NEWSLETTER

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

===================================================
THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS DECEMBER 2009 NEWSLETTER

The first part of our 30th Anniversary was always going to be tough.So many shows were confirmed at the last moment that sometimes the band felt like it was crossing into an unknown dimension rather than simply travelling to another city.We slept on floors, in dormitories and sometimes in the middle of a 10 hour drive (though thankfully not the long suffering driver).
Despite all of that people turned out in force to watch the Dots ; performances frequently had that edge of intensity that perhaps only extreme adversity can produce.Now that brief month (which felt like a year) is over and planning is underway for part 2. More old and new songs will be in the set next Spring.The year 2010 is not simply LPDs 30th Anniversary , it will mark the beginning of a big ,brave adventure.No other way- we hope you’ll join us….

LEGENDARY PINK DOTS 30th Anniversary Tour- SECOND PART
Tour dates:

11 Dec Heerlen,NL …….KuS
Edward Ka-Spel/The Silverman live solo show
2 Jan 2010 Bochum, D………………………..Zwischenfall

2 Apr 2010 Brussels,B ………………………..Botanique
11 Apr 2010 Budapest,H (tbc)

BELARUS:
We are still keen to play in Minsk, and it will happen- but in 2010.
Belarus is a country which needs a special approach when it comes to organizing concerts and we have complete faith in the energetic little agency which wants to make this show happen.We will keep you posted.

The Second part of the 30th Anniversary Tour will be in Spring 2010, while it will be concluded in the USA/Canada in the Fall next year.

NEW RELEASES

THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS- Live 1991 DVD-R
Filmed with one camera in LPDs home town of Nijmegen.Hugely nostalgic (one of martyn’s first shows) and very wild and intimidating at a time when “Maria Dimension” was new. Consider this as a companion release to “The Maria Sessions”.Available from TEKA in mid-November and on tour before then.Price : 15 euros (plus postaged/packing).OUT NOW

THE TEAR GARDEN- Have a Nice Trip (CD)
Now finished and primed for production in the near future. Songs composed and recorded in Los Angeles early in 2008. A sumptuous audio rollercoaster.

a silver disc on Beta-Lactam Ring Records after a chat between Edward and Chris at the label.All proceeds go towards a a good cause (go to www.blrrecords.com for full details).15 euros plus postage and packing.Delivery imminent.
OUT NOW

THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS/ The Maria Sessions (CDR)
Back in 1991 , every note played by the Dots was captured on a tape recorder which was literally never switched off.Some of the more inspired
improvisations were worked on and turned into songs which found their way
on the Maria dimension album.
This CDR captures the very best of those sessions and features some of the most wonderful guitar work from Bob Pistoor that you’ll ever hear.A perfect
companion release to Maria Dimension itself, this literally brought tears to our eyes when we played the finished version recently.Highly highly recommended- everything unreleased and unheard outside the Dots.
A TOQ CDR …it costs 13.50 euros plus postage. OUT NOW!

THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS/Human Radio (CDR)
A radio broadcast in 2002 before a tiny audience in an Amsterdam cafe.
Crystal clear recordings interspersed with snippets of interview plus the material the Dots played in the cafe AFTER the radio show was finished.
Songs included are “Isis Veiled”, “Our Dominion”, “12th” ,”The More it stays the same” and a few others.A quiet beauty….This TOQ CDR costs 13.50 euros plus postage.OUT NOW

EDWARD KA-SPEL/THE SILVERMAN/ The Whispering Wail (CDR)
Fine recordings from 2004 featuring Edward and Phil improvising with ” The Whispering Wall” album in mind. It’s wild and loud and at times utterly uplifting.Again, this one comes recommended .All pieces unreleased and unheard outside Chez Dots.
A TOQ CDR..it costs 13.50 euros plus postage.OUT NOW

EDWARD KA-SPEL/The Painted River of Regrets (vinyl LP)
Just released by Beta-Lactam Ring records in an edition of 300 copies.A delirious voyage to a melancholy corner of the universe. It costs 20 euros plus 8 for postage /packing inside Europe and 10 further afield.

BEAUTIFUL THINGS THAT CAME OUR WAY

FREDERIK GROENER & TIMO VAN LUIJK-Voile au Vent (vinyl LP)
Just released- this is a record of astonishing beauty.The first side made me feel like I was tiptoeing through a magical garden at twilight, the second cast me out into a forgotten sea.Timo is an improviser of the first order- everything he creates is worthy of your attention, but if you start anywhere, then start HERE. It’s limited as well, so be fast!
It can be ordered directly from Timo at this address: tivalu@telenet.be

MAG
Watch this space for details concerning this incendiary solo girl performer from Sweden.She opened for us in Malmo and Im still scraping my jaw from
the floor after dragging it all the way back to The Netherlands. Marvellous, hugely inventive….words aren’t enough..

ES/ Sateenkaarisuudelma
Available as a beautiful double album release and as a double CD.
Quite honestly if the amount of love and devotion poured into this album was contagious (I hope it is) then we could seriously talk about the dawn of a New Age of earth. Nothing sweet here, this is music that lifts the listener to a place he or she probably hoped would exist but somehow doubted it. I had to think of the best work of Terry Riley at odd (golden) moments, but that would be a lazy comparison ultimately.
Much has been written about the “Finnish free folk” movement ,and there are an awful lot of releases out there which carry this categorization.My recommendation is to dive into the ocean with confidence…but this is a good place to start from.
SVARTBAG
I was given this CD by a kind record store owner in Copenhagen, and what a beauty it is!!! Perhaps there are echoes of the sadly missed Godspeed You Black Emperor, but that comparison does this Danish band a disservice.Very much an individual sound to this CD on the Rump Recordings label.Charged, ecstatic .Utterly uplifting in these sepia times.
THE JOHN MORAN CORPORATION
Sometimes a CD comes along that makes you want to fling open the windows and scream about to the rest of the World (only that would of course interfere with the beautiful music).
In the case of John moran, it wasn’t one but 2 albums that turned up in the mail box..Psychedelic in the braodest sense, tuneful, intelligent,happy, sad—dont know where to stop.John is fromAustralia and his CDs are on the Puzzle Factory label.Seek him out, and buy his music–you will not regret this.
UN FESTIN SAGITAL
Title: Epitafio a la Permanencia
Imagine Christian Vander and Pierre Henry collaborating on a lost masterpiece when they were both at the peaks of their powers…..Imagine the master tape turning up in Chile..Imagine it’s reputation preceded it and turned out to be EVEN BETTER……Un Festin Sagital is a group I’d never heard of before, but I reckon I’ll spend the next few years hearing them again and again such is the depth of this debut.Purchase from < www.blrrecords.com> now before it vanishes.
ARIEL KALMA
Beta-Lactam Ring has given Ariels’ first insanely rare album a long overdue re-release and it’s a glory.Lots of beautiful bonus material as well. We loved this record for years at Chez Dots…Hearing it with this kind of clarity was akin to waking up after a long Winter’s sleep.
MORE TO COME SOON!!

GENERAL ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS:
1. All prices are listed in Euros and USD. The Euro price is for readers in western Europe while the dollar price is for everyone outside this continent- note: we ALWAYS prefer Euros as the Dollar becomes weaker every day.Always check for availability of items before ordering by emailing:
l_khata@yahoo.com
2. . Under normal circumstances, we process orders within five working days, though CD-R orders may take longer. Trans-Atlantic deliveries usually take an average of three weeks for items that are in stock. However, since the postal service can take significantly longer than three weeks in some instances (and considerably shorter than three weeks in others!), we cannot be held accountable for fluctuations in your delivery time. 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.
3. When placing your order, please remember that it is your responsibility to let us know if you would like your parcel sent via insured or registered mail. Keep in mind that we live in an imperfect world with an imperfect postal system. Alas, we *cannot* accept responsibility for uninsured/unregistered parcels that are lost or delayed. If you would like us to send your parcel via registered mail, we will be happy to do so, but please add 5 Euros or 6 USD to your payment.
4. Orders of 10 or more copies of the same title will qualify you for wholesale prices (much cheaper). Get back in touch with us for more details.
5. Alas, we cannot accept credit cards or cheques.
6. All payment must be made in advance, though we’ll be happy to reserve anything for you for up to three weeks. Please remember that we sometimes have an extremely limited stock of some items. To reserve items, please contact us through the e-mail address listed above.
7. Please make sure you include a note with your payment letting us know which item(s) you are ordering and your shipping address. If you are paying with a bank transfer or money order, make sure to list the individual titles on the transfer note or money order. In other words, please write: 1. “All The King’s Horses” CD, 2. “Requiem Settings” CD, 3. “Tanith & The Lion Tree” CD instead of “3 CDs.” If you are sending cash, please remember to enclose a list of the items you are ordering with your payment and again, please include the shipping address.
