Kickstand Productions Presents
THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS: 40th Anniversary Tour

  • The Legendary Pink Dots

    The Legendary Pink Dots

    Experimental Rock

    The Legendary Pink Dots are a Netherlands-based band formed in August 1980 in the UK who, although distinctly underground, have been musically influential over the years. The band name was derived from pink dots of nail varnish on the piano in their squat, where founding members Edward and April lived. The band has as its focal point vocalist Edward Ka-Spel, who is, along with Phil "The Silverman" Knight, one of the original remaining members of the band. In the mid eighties the band resettled in the Netherlands, where they still reside today. Apart from Edward and Phil, the line-up has gone through many changes. Members such as Ryan Moore, a Canadian bass player, who joined in 1991 after the recordings of the Last Man to Fly with the Tear Garden (he joined as a session musician), went on to form their own labels and musical projects. See Twilight Circus and M Records. Their music is nothing if not original and it is difficult to categorise, but comparisons may be drawn with bands like Pink Floyd and Can.

    Their sound has been described as an amalgamation of  and . They have released over 40 records and continuously tour the world.

    Members of the band have also collaborated with Nurse With Wound, The Dresden Dolls,Jarboe,HNAS,Jim O'Rourke,Skinny Puppy's cEvin Key, forming The Tear Garden. Key also appears on the 1994 album 9 Lives to Wonder.

  • Orbit Service

    Orbit Service

    Alternative

    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.
