The Legendary Pink Dots

The Legendary Pink Dots, as legendary as their name, are an Anglo-Dutch experimental rock band that has been creating their own musical universe since 1981.

Right from the start, their output has been quite prolific, with no less than four tapes released in the first year of their existence alone. This would not change until the late nineties, with a new album with original material every 1–2 years only, but accompanied by re-releases of early, hard-to-find material, and live albums.

In addition, singer Edward Ka-Spel has released more than 60 solo albums to date, and he and other members of the band have collaborated in various other projects, most notably in The Tear Garden, which originally consisted of Ka-Spel and cEvin Key of Skinny Puppy, but later expanded to involve all current Pink Dots members as well as several friends of both the Pink Dots and Key.
Edward Ka-Spel also recorded an album with Amanda Palmer, and they also played a sold-out show at Porgy & Bess in Vienna a couple years ago.


Ambient/Avant Noise act helmed by producer/DJ/engineer puppy38. Originally from Austin, Texas, currently residing in Vienna, Austria.

The music of hiroshimabend has been likened to swimming in a milky lake of black ink.

Hiroshimabend has performed many solo or headlining shows, opening for The Legendary Pink Dots, Skinny Puppy, Job Karma, Fetisch Park, Thighpaul Sandra (Coil), and Becoming /// Animal (Gordon Sharp of Cindytalk). 2019 sees the self-released double CD "J10C", the band's 35th studio album.
