The Legendary Pink Dots
Edward Ka-Spel is a machine like the world has never seenabout 150 albums between his Legendary Pink Dots and his own solo work and other projects; even the mighty Mark E. Smith must tremble before a total like that. The Dots dont quite do it allno Mekons-style sidetrips into countrybut they do a lot, and they do it well. Inside artfully detailed hundreds of songs are beautiful connections to and reflections of similarly legendary outré-nauts such as Can, Van der Graaf Generator, This Heat and Faust, as well as enough of what potential investors like to hear described as a pop sensibility. They fit as finely in a club as they do in a space capsule.
