The Legendary Pink Dots

Formed in London in 1980, the Legendary Pink Dots moved to Amsterdam in the middle of the decade. Members throughout the band's career have been Edward Ka-Spel (vocals, keyboards) and Phil Knight (keyboards), also known as the Silver Man, with a shifting supporting cast over the years. The Dots' music is by turns melodic pop and exotic psychedelia, with classical influences, sampling, and relentlessly dark, violent, apocalyptic lyrics. After several releases for Mirrodot and Inphaze during the early '80s, the group signed to Play It Again Sam distribution for 1985's The Lovers, and released much of their best material (1990's Crushed Velvet Apocalypse, 1991's The Maria Dimension) on the label. Even as the Legendary Pink Dots neared their two-decade anniversary, the group continued to tour Europe and America quite consistently, appreciated by several generations of dark industrial/goth audiences (and documented by the 2000 live album Farewell, Milky Way). After releasing Your Children Placate You from Premature Graves in spring of 2006, the band embarked on their 25th anniversary tour. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

A collection of musicians who reflect more than sound. Reflections of deep moods and audio realms. The dots never needed to push their music to be recognized, but rather let their art draw the audience to them.

Their archive is of epic proportions. . This does no justice. .. Every album is a genre in itself

Don't get me started again on Pandora's elected reviewer. I'm taking names now. Three left out subjects: Crushed Velvet Apocalypse, Neils Van Hoorn and Ryan Moore. If Crushed Velvet was mentioned thas how stupified of a review it impacted... Love this band, a movement and genre alone. LPD is simply a wondrous masterpiece. Like no other.

Wife will never stay in the room when I listen to them.

They have left off some of their best. Where's Curse, Brighter Now, The Tower? Hell what about The Legendary Pink Box. Glad that the little bit that is on here is, but it hardly scratches the surface.

I was looking for music like the TV Show The Office's theme show song and got Legendary Pink Dots. What I find interesting is that I love The Office theme show song and about 15+ years ago saw The Legendary Pink Dots in concert, even had dinner with Mr. Ka-Spel. Love them!!!

One of the mostprolifif i c bands I've ever seen. By the late eighties had an incredible amount of albums, EPs, cassettes, etc. Check out the Legendary Pink Box disc as a great starting point. Saw them in NYC at the Limelight. They were great.

Dear Pandora: Please lay off the Tears For Fears and New Order on my Legendary Pink Dots radio station...wt h ? ?

Dear Pandora: You speak of 25 years of work by the LPDs, but you only offer a paltry selection, playing mostly from Plutonium Blonde. Please widen you repertoire!

I have been an avid Tear Garden fan and follower for as long as they've existed(86)a n d have heard mention of the Legendary Pink Dots for many a year but was unable to find any of their CD's in stores since I started looking in the 90's, then by shear chance and dumb luck I found 1 of their albums in a close out bin at a Hastings in Missoula MT.of all places just a few months ago and got it in perfect condition for 2 bucks!(Ridic u l o u s 4 sure!) I love this Edward K-spell band every bit as much as

Haven't missed a show in 15 years. I love these guys.

Well, after all these years, I think this is the first time that I heard these guys, even though I always knew the name. Crazy! Very cool stuff.

I just saw these guys in Boston. They were incredible as always. They never EVER dissapoint at their shows !
Report as inappropriate
I wonder if they have "Sirius (Needle City edit)"... one of the darkest, creepiest songs these guys ever did. Imagine how a follower of something like the Heaven's Gate Cult would talk to his child, trying to convince him to join their suicide-pact . Shudderific. It starts off slow and kind of trippy, the dialogue comes in and gets scarier from there, then the music train-wrecks into this melodic insanity that blows you away... These guys are fuggin' AWESOME.

I wish they would add Asylum.

Need more LPD than these three albums...i'l l tip my hat to pandora for trying, but CVA, Maria Dimension, The Tower, Any Day Now all need to added so there is more variety by them in the rotation.

BTW Tear Garden is with cEvin key not ogre from SP.
