Thanks to all who turned up for our tour ! We enjoyed it - especially the last two shows in Moscow and St.Petersburg. Strange to think that we've now visited Russia five times since the year 2000 when it would have been virtually impossible in the not so distant past.

Anyhow , time to look ahead and some special events are on the horizon.

First is the Nijmegen Underground festival at The Lux theatre on May 18.

For this show The Dots will perform the psychedelic audio plays "Katrina" (as can be found on the '30 Year Itch' release) and a new work , 'The Creature that tasted sound".

Also on the bill are long term Dots' friends and favourites , The Use of Ashes and Bee Queen. It really is worth travelling for.

On June 10 , The Dots play at Queen Elizabeth Hall on The South Bank in London on the first day of The Meltdown Festival ,curated by Ray Davies. On a spectacular night, the mighty Crazy World of Arthur Brown also appear.

To conclude a momentous month, LPDs go to Leipzig for the Wave Gothik Treffen Festival on Monday 13 June.

May 18 : Nijmegen Underground Festival (LPDs + Bee Queen + The Use of Ashes) at The Luxe Theatre

January 2010


The day after our last show of the USA tour and I'm sitting at the computer reflecting on what one hell of an adventure the whole thing was (note I updated this on 8 January).

Fittingly we finished here in Portland where the reception is especially wild, even on a snowy Monday night with alarmists on the radio urging everyone to stay in. Thanks to those brave souls who chose differently.

Now we head for home after a vegetarian Thanksgiving in a couple of days. Time for a rest I guess, but it probably won't work out that way.

Thanks for everybody's patience regarding pre-orders. We're ready to send everything except that darned DVD (Paris in the Fall) and those Crushed velvet bags which are on the way from India. Still, both are very much in the works now. Time for some hot chai...

INTRODUCING: The TeKa Handmade Series

The Terminal Kaleidoscope mail order service is happy to announce a series of hand-made items brought to you by members of the band.

Edward Ka-Spel - Devascapes
Just 25 were made for the USA tour featuring a digital version of the hyper-limited cassette release and a cover which featured fragments of a story which is to be set to music and sent through Cyberspace to those who picked it up on the USA tour. It sold out although we did limit sales to 1 per show, but after persistent protests from quite a few people , the artist IS preparing some more.
Because of the time it takes to make each one, it will only be available until FEBRUARY 6th!
Of course the cover will be different to the original 25 but the exclusive piece will be available to those who place an order. When the deadline is gone it will NOT be made available any more.
PRICE: 25Eur

The Legendary Pink Dots - Faces In The Fire (Picture Disc!)
Faces in the Fire as a picture disc with a handmade cover by The Silverman and New Orleans artist Allen Jaeger. A handful, lovingly created...
