Formed in 1980 in the UK, and shortly thereafter transplanted to Amsterdam, The Legendary Pink Dots are more together today than ever before. Constantly touring for 20 years on the Continent and USA, they have produced over 25 records on labels such as Play It Again Sam, Wax Trax, Staalplaat, Caroline, and Soleilmoon USA. Their leader, Edward Ka-Spel, a frequent collaborator with Skinny Puppy, has released albums of his own material and with Tear Garden (members of Skinny Puppy) on Nettwerk Capitol USA.
Legions of adoring fans virtually assure a sellout crowd for the band's gigs. Their unusual mixture of electronic psychedelic whimsy and Alice In Wonderland playful, lush textural madness have kept them constantly on the top of the underground cult musical scene.
Can we put Humpty Dumpty back together again? Edward Ka-Spel & LPD are definitely going to try. All The King’s Men (all new material) & its companion release on Soleilmoon All The King’s Horse’s, are albums inspired & affected by the events of September 11th. In classic LPD form, they use a nursery rhyme to evoke both the apocalyptic events of a year ago & the hope that has arisen from them. This album is a paradox & a provocation. The world has fallen apart & we must put it back together. What should we do?
