04/10/06: FRAGMENTS OF ILLUMINA 2 X LP:

Beta-lactam Ring Records will be releasing Edward Ka-Spel's solo album Fragments of Illumina as a double vinyl extravaganza with an extra side of bonus material. This edition will be limited to 300. Stay tuned for more details.


04/06/06: ALCHEMICAL PLAYSCHOOL AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER FROM SOLEILMOON:

Alchemical Playschool, which will be released on May 8, is now available for pre-order from Soleilmoon!


Alchemical Playschool is easily one of the most unusual Legendary Pink Dots albums ever released. Based on the double CD Indian Soundscapes, released in 2004 by Soleilmoon, these recordings are best enjoyed with a cold glass of Bhang Ki Thandai, following which the operation of heavy equipment or motor vehicles is strongly discouraged. Yes, this a trippy, psychedelic album, in the tradition of earlier Chemical Playschool albums, but it’s been dusted with magical powders from The Orient, making it an altogether different experience from its predecessors. As experimental and esoteric works go, this is the band’s definitive work. The album was born two years ago, following the conclusion of the Dots’ last North American tour. Edward Ka-Spel met with Soleilmoon owner Charles Powne, who had recently returned from a stay in India. Charles gave Edward a copy of his Indian Soundscapes 2xCD, and invited him to take the material and use it in a new Dots recording. The resulting music borrows lightly from the source material, deftly blends it with the band’s signature electronic wizardry, and distills a potent brew redolent with the aromas of saffron, cardamom and flowers. We think you’ll find it both irresistable and unforgettable.

Alchemical Playschool is limited to 400 hand numbered copies, presented in a stunning soapstone box. The Legendary Pink Dots “trident” logo has been carved into the cover in intricate detail (Note from Lisa: Yes, it's really on there - looks gorgeous, too!). The contents of the box include an eight page booklet, a numbered card, and of course the CD, packed in a cloth bag screen printed with the Sanskrit translation of the band’s famous slogan. A second edition may be released at an unspecified date in the future, but in completely different packaging. Sing while you may!


04/04/06: TRACKLIST FOR YOUR CHILDREN PLACATE YOU FROM PREMATURE GRAVES:

Here is the tracklist for the new album:

Count on Me
No Matter What You Do
Stigmata Part 4
Please Don't Get Me Wrong
Feathers at Dawn
Peace of Mind
Island of Our Dreams
Bad Hair
The Made Man's Manifesto
A Silver Thread
Your Number's Up


04/02/06: NEW LYRICS / RELEASE NEWS:

Lyrics for the track No Matter What You Do from Your Children Placate You From Premature Graves:

Jesus loves the little children even when they torch the cat. Jesus loves the little cat that flies then tortures this and that. Jesus loves yea, that which stings. Yea, that which stinks. Yea, look! No fingers!!! Jesus just loves everything. We do not deserve him.

Jesus loves the man who takes his name then wields it as a curse. Jesus loves the man who fakes his pain then flaunts it, lines his purse. Jesus loves his wife, the wise guy, shy guy and the sleazy shyster. Jesus don't steal pearls from oysters.
It would be beneath him.

We do not disturb him. We do not deserve him. We are so unworthy of his endless mercy.

NEW RELEASE NEWS!!!

02/15/06: EDWARD KA-SPEL SOLO SHOW IN AMSTERDAM:

Edward Ka-Spel will be performing at the Sugar Factory in Amsterdam on April 1, 2006. Tickets for this show will go on sale on February 20th. Here is the press release from www.electronation.nl:


On Saturday 1 April as part of Sugar Factory’s one-year anniversary weekend Electronation in co-operation with KinkFM proudly presents:

Darkness Is Enlightening: An Evening Dedicated to Your Other Side.

The evening will be separated into two parts. The first part of the evening is A Tribute To Balance and incorporates a release party of the latest edition of the fabulous X-rated CD’s. This particular one called X-rated: The Dark Files is being released by SteamSounds music and is dedicated to and inspired by the late Balance.

[The CD] is a brilliant collection of exclusive and non-explosive dark industrial music by some of the world’s most acclaimed industrial artists such as: Black Sun Productions, Peter Christopherson, Aural Rage (Danny Hyde), Monoton, Markant, Legendary Pink Dots, Scanner, Steven Stapleton and Raison d'źtre and many others.

From the great collection of artists that are included on the X rated CD, we have chosen to invite Edward Ka-Spel of the Legendary Pink Dots to perform live - along with the highly-acclaimed children of darkness: Black Sun Productions. Best known for their collaboration with Coil in some of the band's most iconoclastic live installations and for their Plastic Spider Thing, a cycle of 23 extreme performances, Black Sun Productions' wicked boys released in 2005 two proper albums, OperettAmorale and Visions ov Anarcadia, both warmly received by the public and critics alike.

The doors will be open at 20:00 and performances will start around 20:45.

For the second part of the evening we have chosen to continue with Drama Society, who are Luca Baldini and Sergio Ricciardone, both talented producers, DJs and performers hailing from Italy. Their first 2 singles Liars and Crying Hero were released on Turbo Recordings and following Tiefschwarz’s use of the Tiga mix of Crying Hero on their mix album Misch Masch, Drama Society were immediately signed to Fine Records. The subsequent singles - Accident and Crescendo - were released in 2005 and gained praise from Tiga, Tiefschwarz, Laurent Garnier, Ellen Alien and Headman amongst others.

Last year Luca spent 4 weeks with the Pet Shop Boys, arranging and programming part of their forthcoming new album and Sergio and Luca spent their time gigging in places such as Montreal, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, Berlin, London, Rome, Milan, Turin, Bologna, Lausanne and Hamburg as well as writing and recording their debut album for release later this year. Supported by our own DJ Dion and DJ Nuno dos Santos, for visuals we have chosen to work with the talented VJ Snow.

The second part of the evening starts at 23:00 and finishes at 05:00.


01/30/06: WELCOME BACK, MARTIJN DE KLEER!

The Legendary Pink Dots are delighted to announce that Martijn de Kleer has stepped back in to the band. This will be Marty's third spell with the band in fifteen years!

Marty will be featured on the next LPD recordings and will be joining the band on the North American tour, slated to begin in early June.

More details/announcements/tour dates are coming soon!


01/29/06: WEB SITE UPDATES:

I am in the process of updating/cleaning up/archiving many, many areas of the Web site. While this is happening, you may notice a few weird glitches and files/pages that are temporarily disabled. One thing we are working on is moving the downloads to a different area within brainwashed.com. Those files will not be accessible for a short period of time. Keep checking this space for updates and tour/new album announcements.


01/16/06: AN ANNOUNCEMENT FROM EDWARD KA-SPEL:

On Saturday, January 14, Erik Drost performed with the Legendary Pink Dots for the last time. Erik has decided to leave the band for personal reasons. His talent, style and enthusiasm brought fresh energy to the Pink Dots when he came aboard in late 2003 and he will be sadly missed. We wish him well in his endeavours and hope to hear more from him in the future.

Erik cannot be replaced, so we will not say that we are working on finding a suitable replacement for him. What we will say is that we will have another announcement for you shortly and that it's going to be a very positive announcement.


01/11/06: LEGENDARY PINK DOTS ON GERMAN PUBLIC RADIO:

On Monday, January 16th, Deutschlandfunk (national public radio for traditional hi-quality journalism in Germany) will broadcast a special Pink Dots show to honor the band's 25th anniversary.
