The Legendary Pink Dots
The Legendary Pink Dots
Anglo-Dutch rock band formed in London, UK, in August 1980. In 1984 the band moved to Amsterdam, Netherlands.
The Legendary Pink Dots exist in the fields of experimental and psychedelic music. The band is fronted by Edward Ka-Spel, who doubles as singer and chief lyric writer. Phil Knight (The Silverman), Erik Drost, and Raymond Steeg make up the current lineup of the band. The sound is often a conglomerate of electronics, saxophones, guitars, drums, and Ka-Spel's distinctive voice and lyrical invention. Side projects of the band include The Tear Garden (with Cevin Key from Skinny Puppy), and Mimir (with Christoph and Andreas Heemann), plus solo ventures.
Orbit Service
Orbit Service
Randall Frazier has been performing solo and in various band
incarnations as Orbit Service since the 1990s, releasing no less than
5 brilliant moody albums since 2001. With beginnings in dark psych
rock tempered by contemporary influences from Slint to Palace
Brothers, the Orbit Service sound has increasingly moved outward into
experimental realms. His most recent two albums on Beta-lactam Ring
Records 2011's A Calm Note from the West and last year's Stereo Magic
(Portal In 13 Parts) are steeped in musique concrete, electronic
drone, and inner ear echoes. Randall's haunting voice, however, is
always floating atop the sonic wave machines, and somehow uses
profound alienation to make the music more accessible. His
collaboration with the Legendary Pink Dots called A Star Too Far
released Saucers Over Lincoln another astounding album on BLR in 2015
that remarkably sounds more like Orbit Service than LPD.
