The Legendary Pink Dots Five Days...complete Colored Vinyl 2LP
For the first time ever on CD or vinyl, these 2016 recordings from experimental rock icons The Legendary Pink Dots!
The Legendary Pink Dots (LPD) are an Anglo-Dutch experimental rock band formed in London in August 1980. In 1984 the band moved to Amsterdam, playing with rotating musicians and having, as core members, singer/songwriter/keyboardist Edward Ka-Spel and keyboardist Phil Knight. As of 2012, the group is composed of Edward Ka-Spel (vocals, keyboards, songwriter), Phil Knight (keyboards, electronics), Erik Drost (guitars) and Raymond Steeg (live sound engineer).
Although outside the mainstream (in terms of their music and career path), LPD have released more than 40 albums, have a devoted worldwide following, and tour frequently.
Their music touches on elements of neo-psychedelia, ambient music, electronic music, tape music, industrial, psychedelic folk, synthpop, post-punk, progressive, jazz, noise, pop, and goth rock, with a distinctly experimental/avant-garde bent; their sound has evolved over time and remains distinctive, making it difficult to place the group into a concise style or genre.
The genesis of the recording came from a challenge the band issued itself to record, mix and master a full length album in the span of just 4 days, a challenge they missed by just one day! Hours of experimental improvisation went into creating this project in what Edward Ka-Spel describes as a "primeval freak-out!" Available on both CD and as a double ORANGE vinyl set!
