“Hauptbanhof (live at WFMU)” (by Legendary Pink Dots)
Formed in London in 1980 by mainstays Edward Ka-Spel and Philip Knight and relocated to Amsterdam in 1984, the Legendary Pink Dots have created a massive discography of over 40 LPs, not counting the many Ka-Spel solo outings. On the latest, "Seconds Late For the Brighton Line", they continue their enduring, abstract, psychedelicized vision that has landed them as somewhat spiritual kin to the likes of Nurse With Wound and Current 93: dark, keyboard-inflected pop, Kraut-informed electronics, acidy industrial soundscapes all meld with Ka-Spel's unique lyrical and vocal stamp. They stop by WFMU's studios to play on Brian's show today, and also played live at Le Poisson Rouge in New York on October 29th. Tonight they are in Pittsburgh and head south then west, check out the 30th Anniversary tour dates here. The lineup today: Edward Ka-Spel, the Silverman, Erik Drost, engineering Raymond Steeg. For more info on the LPD's see their site, also find their music at outlets like Soileilmoon, Beta-Lactam Ring, and their newest "Seconds Late For the Brighton Line" is out on ROIR. Songs today: Exceptional Buddhist / Russian Roulette / Hauptbanhof / Soft Toy / ? / WFMU INTERVIEW / God and Machines
