It’s been a ruthless New Year so far. Heroes are supposed to be immortal, but we’ve seen too many lost in a month that sometimes felt like a decade. The sense of shock created a cloud that hung over Dots’ hq for until roughly a week ago when we made the very conscious decision to embrace 2016 and do our part to turn this sad year around. The first releases of 2016 appeared a few days ago – just low-key download-only recordings of The Legendary Pink Dots and The Silverman live in Potsdam back in 1996 – they can be found on the Pink Dots’ Bandcamp site.
The first physical release, on lovingly made CDr, is from The Silverman with a long unreleased album from 2001 entitled “DisOrient Express ” The title is appropriate.
It’s spontaneous, wild and after 40 minutes on the edge of your seat I promise a feeling a of breathlessness but with the delightful heady state that normally accompanies that condition. -EK
