Issued Sept 15th to coincide with the North American tour of The Legendary Pink Dots and Orbit Service. An edition of 111 copies available on the tour with 39 copies available via BLRR mail-order (first edition of 150).

Packaged in a French Black six panel CD case. Two years in the works and finally seeing the light of day. “Infernal Machine” a collaboration with Edward Ka-Spel and Armchair Migraine Journey delves deep into a psychedelic swirl of sounds. “Strands that Bind”, a new track by AMJ dives slowly into a sea of ambient drones and passages and develops along its 24-minute journey into an almost metal machine music dirge. Armchair Migraine Journey and Orbit Service will be opening for The LPD in Portland, OR and Seattle, WA with possible more shows along the tour.

The More It Changes (Live In Tel Aviv June 2013)

Phase Two of our modest campaign to fund The Dots’ Tour of North America slated for Autumn 2016.

Always pacing the thin line that divides blissful ascension with a fall from a great height, The Dots’ return to Tel Aviv’s Barby Club in 2013 was a nerve-shredding adventure. The Promoter’s concept was a reunion of the present line-up with former Pink Dot but ever-present friend Patrick Q. Wright and the resurrection of a long list of songs from the 80s. We liked the first part of the idea, but Pink Dots’ Karaoke rankled more than a bit.  Consequently we settled upon just a precious few nuggets from the past.

Even so, the biggest problem was REHEARSAL. Pat lives in Italy, and schedules just wouldn’t allow us all to be in the same room before stepping off the plane.

Consequently files flew through cyberspace and practising was a lonesome experience.
While there were mistakes (plenty), the sheer exuberance of the audience carried us through to the point where we agreed to a Promoter on his knees pleading with us to play “Curious Guy” as a second encore although we hadn’t rehearsed that one AT ALL.

An exciting little chapter in our bizarre existence and no regrets at all.  This release is Stage 2 in our efforts to raise funds for the Dots’ Page Aquarian Tour in September / October.  A BIG BIG Thank you to Ray Steeg for preparing this much requested master recording.

 

New compilation release: Festive

Phase One of our modest campaign to fund The Dots’ Tour of North America slated for Autumn 2016.

“Festive” collects together all the “seasonal” releases by the Dots so far and presents them as a delightful 2 x cdr package. It is necessarily limited but we intend to keep this full set downloadable for the foreseeable future. 50 of the physical sets will be available for the Tour; 49 will be available via Bandcamp from around 28 OCTOBER 2016.
