THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS ~ 8118

LP
Original Artwork by Philip Knight

Numbered edition of 40 ex.
d’or016
Date of Release: 15 July 2018

The Legendary Pink Dots project 8118 consists of two side-long pieces by founding members Edward Ka-Spel and Philip Knight,based around the theme – “Reflection”.

The 81 side: “Reflections in Pink” begins with unreleased LPD recordings made during sessions (1981 into 1982) for “Surprise Surprise”…..and concludes with Premonition 10’s
harmonium improvisation.

The 18 side: Also released for the first time, “Fragments of Blue” (2018) is a slow movement of unfolding tones, pneumatic wheezing and disembodied voice.

Each LP has it’s own unique front cover artwork, designed by Philip Knight from original photography by Astrid Mutsaars. Included also is an insert, and each LP copy comes signed and numbered.

As a footnote – it’s 37 years since the Premonition 10 harmonium improvisation was recorded above a car parts shop in Walthamstow, London E.17, and neither Edward or I can remember anymore who played the percussion parts – our best guess is that it was bass player Roland Callaway.
Sadly the “big beast” harmonium never made the LPD move to the Netherlands in the late-80’s – it found instead a new home at Hamster Records.
