‘The Misery Book’ is the debut album by DADAISM 999 featuring Edward Ka-Spel (Legendary Pink Dots) with several guest musicians (Tony Wakeford of Sol Invictus, Stefano Rossello of Bahntier, Elena Fossi of Kirlian Camera, Albin Julius of Der Blutharsch) together with the band’s official members Dave Weels and Joey Imbalance. The album combines electronic and dark-psychedelic sounds, in a very strange collage of different styles. It’s a melodic and fresh album with abstract lyrics that totally represents the absolutely original form of art of Dadaism 999. The LP is presented in a gatefold sleeve with a gold and black cover.  -The Shiny Beast


The album is a mix of electronics and dark-psychedelic sounds, in a very strange collage of different styles, a melodic and fresh album with abstract lyrics that totally represent the absolutely original form of art for Dadaism 999. The album starts with the nervous track “Dave’s Tripping Attitude” (dedicated to John Balance / Coil); “Rats And Pigs” is more drone experimental then “Materiall Stahl” featuring Elena Fossi (very great interpretation). “A letter” is a very melodic and intense piano song, one of the best tracks by Edward Ka-Spel heard in 35 years! “Ariadne” starts with a mantra/oriental atmosphere (with Stefano Rossello / Bahntier) and follows in a rythmatic track with the great Ka-Spel, also leading the vocals in the retro experimental “Amnesia”. “The Misery Book” title-track ends the album with a sad song by Wakeford, in his classic traditional style! An excellent album, full of epic moments for one of the emerging names in the experimental / esoteric scene. The album comes out in a deluxe gatefold CD, with gold and black cover.  –Storming the Base
