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 ([a84025]), 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 [a24595] (with Cevin Key from [a=Skinny Puppy]), and [a84012] (with Christoph and Andreas Heemann), plus solo ventures.
