A time of great intensity in the peculiar universe of The Legendary Pink Dots. So much happening that perhaps it is best to approach the scenario chronologically….
Event number 1 occurs on March 17 in Athens at Etor’s Tenebrae De Profundis II Festival which is being staged at the Gagarin 205 venue. A stunning event which also features long term Dots’ friends Nurse with Wound and Sol Invictus. Expect surprises.
Event Number 2 occurs on April 1 when the Dots travel to Lille for the “Musique au Musee” festival curated by Amikal Sonic at Les Gigottos Automates . Pierre Bastien is also playing at this festival!
In May Edward Ka-Spel embarks on a tour with Amanda Palmer and Patrick Q.Wright in support of their collaborative album, I Can Spin A Rainbow which will be released on cd and double vinyl by Cooking Vinyl in late Spring. It’s available for pre-order via Amanda’s Patreon page as of February 22nd and elsewhere (including our humble Bandcamp page) three days later. A unique 7” (The Hands EP) is also slated for release, while Amanda is also special guest on EK’s forthcoming solo album, High On Station Yellow Moon which is now under production by Soleilmoon Records. This will also be available on cd and limited vinyl.
